Code 1.0 is an introduction to computer programming that is approachable for those who have no experience while still posing a challenge for those with some previous programming experience. The course introduces basic computer programming topics including logic, flow control, functions, and data structures. It also includes a broad survey of Computer Science topics such as algorithms, computational complexity, and software engineering with just enough information to help you be conversational in these topics. Combined with a challenging set of programming exercises, this course will help you learn to think algorithmically while building your programming skills.
A significant portion of this course is based on Harvard’s CS50 curriculum, and students who successfully complete the assigned problems are eligible for a Harvard certificate of completion.
Course registration fee includes the edX Certificate.
This course meets 2 days a week, Tuesday & Thursday.
ServiceMaster partnered with Tech901 in the past year to develop the nonprofit’s Code 1.0 course. They wanted to offer a course that would benefit local companies. During the planning stage, conversations were held with local IT professionals to gauge their needs.
After the graduation of the first Code 1.0 cohort, ServiceMaster hired four students as interns. Kelly Miller was later hired full-time. She now works as a front-end developer with the American Home Shield E-Commerce team.
Miller holds an undergraduate degree in Engineering Science from Vanderbilt University. After an internship as a product engineer, she switched gears and became a teacher.
She took a position in the Peer Power organization. While working as the STEM coordinator in 2012, she was recruited to East High School to teach engineering courses. After several years, she was ready to tackle a new challenge.
