Week One: CareerFoundry’s Web Dev for Beginners Course
CareerFoundry was one of the very first programs that appeared in my initial google explorations of web development programs. It struck me right away as an approachable, beginner-friendly learning environment and I was excited about the idea of getting the daily tutorials delivered right to my email.
You can easily build an entire webpage from scratch just by following along with the tutorials and come out with a basic grasp of some of the core concepts of web development. However, unless you are genuinely curious about coding and put in the effort to read the additional resources they have available, you won’t really get enough of an understanding to recreate it on your own let alone try your own creative reformatting.
At the end of the series, you get a little pop-quiz where if you get above a 70% they give you a 5% discount to either their one-month “Intro to Frontend Development” course or their ten month, comprehensive “Full-Stack Web Development” program. They also offer several different scholarship and payment plan options which you can discuss with an admissions counselor.
