Path Description from Codecademy

Interested in learning how to code, but unsure where to start? The Code Foundations path provides an overview of the main applications of programming: computer science, web development, and data science. It also teaches important concepts that you'll find in every programming language, such as variables, functions, and control flow. After completing this path, you'll understand key programming terms and you'll be ready to chart your course to a more technical career.

The respective course can be completed on an external platform (see course description "Available Courses").
