Alex Leone (lee-oh-nee) graduated after 10 years of being homeschooled. At 13, his parents began to nurture and encourage his interest in computer programming.
He has worked as a professional software developer since 2012 and has built all kinds of computer programs.
In 2016, he returned to the homeschool co-ops he grew up attending, this time to teach computer programming classes. Coding Foundations was written in those classrooms.
Take two months or two years to go through Coding Foundations, it’s up to you and your schedule. Everyone homeschools differently.
Coding Foundations includes over 40 videos and 120 hours of assignments for your student, developed by professional software developer Alex Leone.
If I was confused about a concept, Mr. Leone was always willing to take the time to explain it in-depth until I understood it.
I HIGHLY recommend this class just for the experience [even] if you are not looking into computer programming for your career. If you are though, this would be a great place to start!
My son enjoyed this class because he could choose how much he wanted to learn in it. He could do the basics, or go as deep as he wanted to go and keep learning.
This is a great curriculum, I have had a lot of fun learning from it.
Learn on your schedule, at your own pace.
Students get the tools to build any program, not just a few step-by-step programs.
Your student can message the instructor anytime, or ask other students for help.
Use the free “Hour of Code” resource from Code.org to find out whether or not your student enjoys computer programming.
