5 tips from the pros

Web Designer - - Developer Tutorials -

1. Get started with cod­ing

The best way to know if cod­ing is for you is to just try it! We rec­om­mend the free, on­line Javascript track of Codecademy to get you started with the ba­sics.

2. Do your re­search

Make sure you read plenty of stu­dent re­views to make sure you’re ap­ply­ing some­where rep­utable. Read their blog and have a look at their so­cial chan­nels.

3. Throw your­self in

Once you’ve de­cided it’s right for you, set aside a few evenings each week to re­ally start mak­ing progress! If cod­ing is for you, this should be fun.

4. Be pre­pared

We’ll be with you ev­ery step of the way when you ap­ply. Make sure you go through all the ma­te­ri­als we rec­om­mend and ask for help if you’re stuck.

5. Get so­cial

With North­coders, you’re not just on a course, you’re part of a com­mu­nity that will stay with you long af­ter you grad­u­ate. Make the most of it!

Becoming part of this vi­brant, car­ing com­mu­nity was some­thing I hadn’t ex­pected be­fore the course, but now I couldn’t be with­out it. To be a North­coder is to be en­light­ened, in­spired and sup­ported. Joanne Im­lay Pri­mary school teacher to soft­ware de­vel­oper at Care­icon North­coders de­liv­ered their part of the bar­gain in spades. They pro­vided tremen­dous as­sis­tance in turn­ing me into the full prod­uct – a well-rounded, ca­pa­ble, fu­ture tech em­ployee – and they have the con­tacts to de­liver the op­por­tu­ni­ties for such peo­ple.
