About

We are a little bit different: 

We help you assemble your own skill set in the way you want to!

Programming is fun. Its fun because you can get the computer to do stuff. Stuff like display images, move them around, crash them into each other and make a sound. You can make lots of sounds. You can store information, lots of information. Then you can organize, analyze and sort information. Once that information is ready, you can share and send it to other people or systems.  You can even get your computer to make decisions based on all kinds of input.

The bottom line is, you want to do stuff with computers and you want to know what computers are capable of.  This is where we come in. We help guide you in becoming proficient with the skills you want to do. You don’t spend a lots of time studying every little aspect of computer science. We help you discover and apply those fantastic little nuggets of computing goodness. You select your own path through the pieces and parts of programming to assemble your own toolkit of experience and skills. We help you track and display your abilities in all of those skills you pick up.

The Three Steps:

Step 1: Find out if you like programming.

How do you know if you like programming?  You spend a little time doing it, with a guide, so you don’t get frustrated and when you’re done a magical thing happens. You either decide that it is fun and you want to do more, or you say no thank you and go do something else. Go to the “Are you a Natural Programmer?” page and select a short class to find out. Of course, if you already know you like programming, just skip to step 2!

Step 2: Choose what you want to Do with a computer.

Select an area of interest around computing, complete a short course, and proudly display your badge of accomplishment. Oh, and don’t forget to start having fun Doing your projects with your new found computer skills!

Step 3: Repeat Step 2 to build lots of skills

Earn lots of badges. Place them in to your programming toolkit to display your comprehensive set of skills and knowledge to anyone.  As your skills build, you can start tackling larger, more complicated and useful projects or even get a professional position!

We are just getting started with this project and are very excited to add to our offerings, over the next few months.  Feel free to contact a member of the team on “info [at] HowToProgram [dot] com”

The class registration form will be available soon.

Learning to program has never been more important!
