Breaking down complicated ideas and processes into more manageable concepts is proven to help you learn and retain information. It’s also more convenient when you’re balancing learning to code with a full-time job, beach days, and summer trips. To help you reach your coding goals this summer and beyond, we’ve repackaged our entire catalog of courses and split our curriculum into smaller, bite-sized courses.

These shorter courses are designed to help you master specific concepts and methods faster. Some of the courses can be completed in less than three hours, but they’re all packed with useful info and tutorials. Whether your goal is finding a job, finishing a project, or landing your promotion, you can hand-pick courses based on the most relevant skills that you need to learn.

Short courses also serve as great reference material when you’re taking on a project and need a quick refresher on a given element or method. Or if you’re preparing for a technical interview for a new job, you can take these to brush up on a function or technique that’ll make your coding solutions more efficient. Even folks who are brand new to coding have more options for building their tech knowledge, with more tailored coursework.

Another perk? As you crush these new and improved courses, you’ll build momentum that’ll motivate you to keep learning, work on more advanced courses, and maybe even challenge yourself to take on a skill path.

Make the most of your Codecademy membership and explore our catalog of over 300 free courses and more than 170 bite-sized courses covering popular programming languages, web and mobile development, artificial intelligence, and more. Here’s a sample of some of the quick free courses you can start today.

Learn JavaScript: Arrays and Loops

There’s more to coding than memorizing syntax; each language comes with its own logic and functionality. Lots of people start their coding journeys with JavaScript, and now you can review the methods and processes that you’ll need as your apps become more advanced.

JavaScript arrays are used to store data, and we use loops to run the same processes over and over under certain conditions. Together, they allow us to run the same operations on every element within an array — which is useful when you’re trying to simplify a complex processes or save time on repetitive tasks. In Learn JavaScript: Arrays and Loops, you’ll get to build and manipulate arrays and execute efficient repetitions using loops.

Mastering loops and arrays will help you develop more efficient solutions, which is also the key to passing technical interviews. Interviewers want to understand the logic behind your solutions, and learning how to effectively utilize various programming methods and functions can help you make a good impression.

Learn HTML: Forms

HTML and CSS are considered the backbones of the web. If it’s been a minute since you reviewed the markup language syntax, consider taking one of these short HTML courses. In Learn HTML: Forms, you’ll learn about the inner workings of an HTML form.

HTML forms are one of the keys to engaging with your users. You’ll need them for account features, newsletters, surveys, feedback requests, and more. Companies rely on web developers to make all kinds of forms to collect user details, so learning how to create and manage them can be valuable.

Intro to SQL

SQL (Structured Query Language), a programming language used to access data in relational databases stored in tables, is a great tool for anyone that works with data (or could work with data). That includes Data Scientists and analysts, but also less-technical people like marketers, product managers, and influencers.

Many companies and platforms provide analytics dashboards that can help you learn more about your users and company metrics. The data is out there if you know how to find it, and in our mini course Intro to SQL, we’ll show you how to create, access, and update tables of data in a relational database.

This is just a taste of what you can learn with our latest catalog update. Curious what other concepts you can pick up quickly? Check out the rest of our programming courses to start taking one of the 300-plus free options today.
