Is a computer programming course right for me?

There is no one-size-fits-all route to becoming a successful computer programmer. For those already working in programming, comprehensive training programs in a specific language will allow for a significant expansion of abilities - and subsequent career prospects. For learners not currently working in IT but hoping to kickstart their career, they can choose from a variety of beginner programming courses and learning pathways to gain a foundation knowledge and accelerate their development.

What will I learn from a computer programming course?

Depending on the specific course and learning format you wish to undertake, computer programming training will equip learners with the skills needed to write code, compile and then execute their own programs. Content will typically cover best practices and design patterns, web and app development, building web services, algorithms, integrating different applications, and developing enterprise applications. Here are some examples of specific programming languages your course might focus on:

Java

JavaScript training courses enable you to understand this popular programming language that is used to make web pages interactive. JavaScript support is built right into web browsers. Provided that website visitors to your site are using web browsers that support JavaScript (most do) and have JavaScript enabled (it is by default) then your JavaScript features will run.

Python

Python has been used by programmers for a variety of function building and app development software because it can be used with great flexibility. Programmers can use it in large and small-scale software alike. Different programming paradigms such as object-oriented, imperative and functional programming styles make use of the Python programming language.

HTML/CSS

Despite common perception, HTML is not a programming language, but rather a markup language used to describe web pages. HTML is a vital part of web development. Web browsers read HTML documents and display them as web pages, using tags such as <b> and </b> to make text bold, for example. The browser does not display the HTML tags, but uses them to relay and alter the page contents.

C/C++

The C programming language is a popular and widely used general purpose programming language developed by Bell Telephones in 1972. Programmers around the world utilise C because it offers them maximum control and efficiency when programming. There are few computer architectures for which a C compiler does not exist. C has also greatly influenced many other popular programming languages, including C++, which started life as an extension to C.

Computer programming course formats

In terms of learning delivery formats, there a plenty of options for you to choose from. Computer programming courses are available via classroom training for face-to-face guidance; online learning for a more flexible, self-paced option; and in-house workshops for companies looking for a more company-tailored solution that allows for multiple members of staff to learn at once.
