The Summer of Code (Free Online Coding Courses) consists of 12 weeks, with challenges for all level of skill from beginner to professional. We have curated a good mixture of Python and JavaScript for you, and courses do build on each other so you can start – for example – with an introduction to Python or JavaScript and then gain practical experience and build a small portfolio by the end of summer that you can showcase to employers or future clients.

1 Million Women To Tech – women’s Summer of Code is a 3-month global program focused on bringing more females into software development. Women can take free online coding courses and work in teams on programming challenges in weekly and monthly hackathons. This way you can win prizes and get introduced to top employers.

If you are into Marketing, Business, or if you wish to find a job as a Web Application or Mobile Application Developer, or what is normally referred to as Software Engineer:
