“We’ve made it as simple as possible for people with absolutely no coding experience to get started and to begin understanding the fundamental concepts of writing code,” said Jeff Winkler, Founder and CEO of Origin Code Academy. “The online courseware is a great way for people to find out if software programming is something they’re interested in learning further, before putting money down on a code bootcamp or pursuing a Computer Science degree.”
Origin Code Academy’s online learning program utilizes an interactive video format to help teach the curriculum. Viewers can pause and edit the on-screen code at any given time. This format gives those that struggle to understand certain concepts the ability to hit pause, jump into the environment and experiment with the code until it’s fully understood.
“This is a very innovative and engaging way of learning how to write code,” Winkler said. “Users are presented with small coding challenges designed to introduce the basics to early-stage programmers. You almost don’t even realize you’re learning very important, fundamental concepts by solving the challenges presented. And because it’s interactive, it makes the experience of learning significantly better.”
The online courseware is completely free of charge and is available simply by signing up at: https://prep.origincodeacademy.com/prepCourseSignup
Earlier this month, Origin Code Academy announced that 100 graduates have officially been hired as full-time developers. To learn more about Origin Code Academy, or to sign up for its free prerequisite courseware, visit OriginCodeAcademy.com.
