HI there! The class is listed as "Beginner" and does not list any prerequisites. I took the course and cannot remember anything specific that might give a beginner problems over someone who already is at an intermediate level in some programming language. Give it a go! The only bad opportunity is a missed one. :sparkles:

I agree with Jennifer. You can take this class with zero programming knowledge. In fact, that's one of the attractive points of the class: you can dive in and create something immediatelty. Any code you need is given to you to copy + paste. (It's not very much.) The rest of the "code" resembles straightforward English sentences.
