"Everybody in this should learn to program a computer,because it teaches you how to think"
Big Brainers India's coding lessons are a great way to dive into the world of computer science or freely learn coding with a live instructor. Depending on the track you're part of, you'll learn various skills that will allow you to be more curious and create your own apps.
Learning to code doesn't necessarily label you as a programmer - in fact, it opens up various opportunities in many different fields. You could code hardware at a hospital and create the next generation of precise surgery equipment and save more precious lives. You could code personalized scripts that make your day more productive. You could code a program to design beautiful, next-level computer-generated art. You could code games that could reach the phones of billions of people. The possibilities are endless. Learning to code is a superpower. Learning to code could give you the greatest potential to help make the world a better place. Learning to code is becoming increasingly important.
based on student's skill level/previous experience/age.
Recommended for kids ages 8+
Requires a basic understanding of arithmetic (math)
Recommended student has been exposed to basic algebra (operators, variables, equations)
Little / no prior coding experience
Scratch (block-based drag-and-drop coding)
Understanding of logic-based coding
Solving abstract programming problems from scratch
Understanding of basic logic structures (conditionals, loops, variables)
Experience debugging and improving programs
Experience using Python after learning the basics through Scratch
Further lessons would expand upon these skills and allow the student to progress to the advanced track once ready
Requires device with web browser
LEVEL A: Scratch - Intro to coding basics by learning variables, operators, conditionals, loops, and functions through fun game-like scenarios
LEVEL B: Python - Intro to text-based coding using the same
Recommended for kids ages 11-15 years old
Some prior coding experience
Already understands basic coding concepts (conditionals, loops, arrays, functions)
Experience with object-oriented programming (OOP)
Classes + other OOP concepts (eg. inheritance)
Learn Java (popular + robust coding language)
Basic + complex data structures
Experience in completing a major programming challenge
Reinforce all concepts taught + learn debugging
Intro to Recursion
Use of Git / GitHub Version Control
Further lessons would expand upon these skills and challenge the student to use advanced logic and problem-solving skills to develop advanced, large-scale programs
Requires Windows, Mac, or Linux computer
LEVEL A: Intro to Java - Applying the fundamentals learned in the Beginner Track to a strongly-typed object-oriented language + strong focus on conceptual understanding
LEVEL B: Object-oriented Programming - Effectively using classes to create functional applications and learning about OOP principles such as inheritance
LEVEL C: More OOP - Diving deeper into OOP principles such as polymorphism and learning about interfaces and abstract data structures
Computer as specified for the level
Math / arithmetic knowledge
Eagerness to learn coding
A Big Brain to think logically!
