Let's Start Creating!
With no computer science or technical background required and the resources below,
learners of any age can learn various high demand programming languages, web design,
and app development for Android and iOS systems.
All are self-paced and formatted in a way to simplify the technical aspects of coding
so that it can be easily grasped by the learner.
Put your ideas and creativity to work and build the next in demand app!
freeCodeCamp is a San Francisco based non-profit organization that allows people to learn coding, earn certificates and coding experience through an effective interactive learning web platform.
The self-paced curriculum involves 1,200 hours of interactive coding modules and web development projects
along with an additional 800 hours
of contributing to open-source projects for nonprofits, serving as an "apprenticeship" while gaining real work coding experience.
The certificate curriculum encompass
front-end development, data visualization, and
back-end development. Languages taught: HTML5,
Founded in New York City, Codecademy is an online web platform that offers free and subscription interactive coding tutorials and activities in 11 programming languages:
React.js), Ruby, SQL, Sass, HTML and CSS.
The subscription based option gives individuals access to additional resources such as personalized learning plans, quizzes, industry level projects, and live online assistance.
W3Schools offers its’ resources at no cost but unlike freeCodeCamp who offers their certificates at no cost, W3Schools charges $95.00 per certificate upon skills verification.
A product of General Assembly, Dash
is a free and effective tool for those seeking
to learn web development coding.
Maintained by the
Massachusetts Institute of Technology,
MIT App Inventor is a free block based,
visual programming environment
that allows everyone, including children,
to build fully functional apps
for Android smartphones and tablets.
Thunkable is an MIT spin-off program that also utilizes block based (drag and drop) programming to effectively teach people how to build their own quality mobile apps for Android and iOS for free.
An affiliated community partner, Girls Who Code is a
non-profit with the mission of increasing female interest
in computer science through Girls Who Code Clubs,
which are FREE programs for 3rd-5th or 6th-12th grade girls to join and use computer science to promote learning and self esteem.
If you are ready to start your Club, create an account on Girls Who Code HQ (link is below) to fill out your Clubs application and indicate your affiliation with by entering our web portal, Peach State Innovation and Technology,
to get access to our partnership benefits, like additional support and funding opportunities!

Scratch is a block-based, visual programming language for, but not exclusive to, children. Using Scratch, learners create their own interactive stories, games, animations and share and work with others, developing the critical skills.
Inspired by Scratch, ScratchJr is the introductory programming language that engages young children
(ages 5-7) to develop and learn programming skills.
Made with Code is an initiative began by Google in 2014
with the mission of directing middle and high school girls into computer science by learning and developing coding skills. Made with Code’s modules use Blockly programming, a visual editor that writes programs
by assembling individual blocks.
Code.org is a non-profit organization
headquartered in Seattle, Washington
whose purpose is to facilitate coding skills learning and development at no cost, particularly
in school children Pre K - 12.
To garner further student attention towards computer science, Code.org hosts annually
the Hour of Code campaign which has involved approximately 10% of all students worldwide.
