CodeAbode was a non-profit code school that was dedicated to making learning web development accessible and affordable for everyone.
I designed the web development curriculum, taught 480 course hours across intensive day bootcamps & night classes, and recieved an average instructor evaluation of 4.88 / 5 across my courses.
I designed the web development curriculum to teach beginners — with no programming background — the skills needed for both front-end and back-end development. The seqeunce of courses was:
- Modern Web Design with HTML/CSS
- Server-Side Programming (Node.js)
- Capstone Projects
A breakdown of the individual courses is hosted online here.
My classes were focused on teaching students how to problem solve and how to teach themselves, through hands-on demonstrations and assignments that guided students through the fundamental concepts. The goal was not to memorize a specific syntax, but rather to learn how to think and problem solve with code.
Example assignments and exercises below. Note: not all of these exercises are mobile-friendly.
