Welcome, Coding Cadets!

Welcome to Coding Commanders 0.5!

I'm Commander Candy, the creator of Coding Commanders and provider of free web development tutorials. Version .5 was recently released for testing.

The goal of my tutorials is to provide quality web development/programming education to people of all socioeconomic and educational backgrounds.

I work at making the lessons easy to follow, so you do not need a technical or mathematics background to get started.

Try out my tutorials and let me know what you think.

Donor Box

I am a one-woman show. I do all the programming (front and back), content writting, content development, graphic design, software design, video production, marketing ect. I am only outsourcing animations.

Because this is a very labor intensive project, I have not earned any income in months.

My goal is to provide free quality web development education. I believe everyone should have access to a marketable education

✶ LAMP is a software stack used to create web applications

✶ It is the most widely used software stack.

✶ Jobs range from entry level WordPress developers (pay about $35-50,000/year), to senior developer postions (pay often over $100,000)

✶ Back End: PHP and MySQL

✶ Front End: CSS, HTML, JavaScript

✶ Operating System: Linux

NodeJS is server side JavaScript

✶ It is a great back end language, which is growing in popularity.

NodeJS is much newer than PHP, so there area less senior devs.

✶ More and more busineses are using NodeJS for web development, as well as other areas of programming.

Postgres is a powerful, open source, SQL database management system.

✶ Learn how to make the front end from scratch using HTML and CSS

✶ Responsive design is crucial to any modern project that you wish to put live.
✶ Read the storyline here: Invasion of the Bugs

✶ Projects will soon be introduced by fun cartoons, annimated by Creativ_e.

✶ The cartoons are based on the Coding Commanders story line. There will be a conflict that must be resolved by web development.

✶ Not all examples use the story, but the background story is present throughout the lessons.

All Coding Commanders projects can easily become real life portfolio projects. The first time you write code, it is a learning experience. After you learn and understand the code, you are ready to polish it. Strip the application down to the skeleton and refine the skeleton. Once the logic and astetics is refined, you can easily add content relevant to the possition you are applying for.
