Learn to code in 2017 with our new evening courses

As 2016 draws to a close, CodeClan’s Head of Curriculum, Sara Dodd, introduces our first batch of 2017 evening courses.

If the final weeks of 2016 have found you reconsidering your current career or wanting to upgrade your skill-set, we have some courses that should be of interest in early 2017.

First up is our 10-week Intro to Programming course, a great start for those who want to learn the core concepts and principles of OO programming using Ruby, a general-purpose (and easy to learn) language. No prior coding experience is necessary.

Hear what one student thought of the course.

Alternatively, take our self-paced Python course, allowing you to learn one of the most popular programming languages at your own speed, enhanced by expert lectures online materials and one-to-one support. Find out why 2017 is the time to take the plunge into Python.

New to our roster for 2017 is our six-week evening course, Intro to Front-End Web Development, exploring coding through the of HTML/CSS and JavaScript interface.

This will be followed in April by an intensive 10-week Web Application Development evening course which will get you coding the back-end of your website/mobile app in JavaScript. Courses run 6:15 – 8:45 pm on Tuesdays/Wednesday evenings and are taught by industry professionals in our friendly and supportive environment.

In addition, as a CodeClan student, you can attend regular industry talks, tech meet-ups and networking events.
