Why are we doing this?

Because coding is the most important job skill of the future. Everybody should get the chance to learn how to code.
So we want to make it easy for you. We have put together a free online course, designed for beginners, to be taken at your own pace and led and guided by experts from the Ironhack team. There's no excuse - we dare you to learn how to code.


Learning to code on your own can be tough. The challenge is led and supervised by the Ironhack team. We will provide feedback and assistance every step of the way.



Learn at your own pace - you decide how much time you spend. The course is designed for complete beginners, but will challenge the most experienced coders by the end.



Learning to code is much better with other people. You will be able to meet other participants through our Slack channel, and we will be hosting 3 awesome events in Berlin.

What You Will Learn


HTML is the language to describe your website, where you write all your titles, paragraphs, images, etc.
