Beginners coding course

A friend who has no coding experience would like to do a beginners coding course.

Something non-specific (language wise) but will teach about variables, loops, conditional logic etc.

Is there anything like that on Treehouse?


The PHP basics might me well worth a look over it gives you the key knowledge to take forward and a good understanding of the core features!

Hope This Helps

There's Introduction to Programming which uses JavaScript to teach about the concepts of variable, conditionals, loops and then goes on to basics of arrays and functions.

You might also check out Programming With Karel from the good people over at CodeHS.

Karel is a dog that only knows how to move, turn left, and place tennis balls in his world. You can give Karel these commands to instruct him to do certain things.

Karel is used show what it means to program, and allow you to focus on problem solving instead of learning syntax.

Agree :)
