In this course, we will begin with proper basic programming skills and habits and work toward more advanced skills. We will also learn how to use standard programming tools.

Many online and homeschool programming courses teach students to learn via programming games. Although this can seemingly make it 'fun' for the student, it doesn't prepare students for the 'real world' and takes them down a path that can set them up for dissapointment later.

There are generally 10x more non-game programming jobs than there are game-programming jobs. And there are many benefits to focusing on non-game programmig (including a much quicker job-entry path). Additionally, programming for online systems is a huge market.

In this course we will begin by learning proper basic skills and habits when programming, learn how to properly program.

When done with this course, the student will have a basic understanding and ability to program a fully functional application.
Students will be learning coding skills in: PHP, Phython, and/or Delphi/Pascal.
