About this course

Have you ever wondered “how can anyone make a program that is so big?” Think of a program you use every day and try to conceptualize how many things exist in it. A video game might have 50 enemies on the screen, each of which is moving in a different direction. A website might have hundreds of images — each one positioned perfectly on the page. Your social media feed might have a seemingly infinite number of posts — each one knows the time it was posted, and the number of people that like it.

How could this possibly work? Surely nobody is sitting somewhere writing code for every single enemy in your video game. But at the same time, there has to be some code for that character somewhere, otherwise, how does it exist?

In this course, we’ll learn about Object Oriented Programming using Python and Project-Based Learning (PBL) to answer some of those questions.

  • The progress I have made since starting to use codecademy is immense! I can study for short periods or long periods at my own convenience - mostly late in the evenings.

  • I felt like I learned months in a week. I love how Codecademy uses learning by practice and gives great challenges to help the learner to understand a new concept and subject.
