Coding School

Computers just like humans have their own language. As they cannot comprehend human language, we have to communicate in ways the computer would understand.

Coding can be compared to the act of writing a script in a language the computer understands. Code also serves as a translator between human languages and binary, the computer speaks binary but also understands various coding languages.

Coding is often used interchangeably with Programming. In simple terms, a programmer writes bits of code to create a program, while a coder understands what coding is and how it functions. He or she also takes bits of code and puts them together into a program.

Developers are majorly grouped into:

As a budding developer in Code School Africa, it is essential to identify what kind you want to be.

Front-End Developers

Front-End Developers are responsible for building websites. They are skilled in design, layout, and the appearance of content on webpages. Popular languages used by Front-End Developers are HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.

Back-End Developers

Back-End Developers simply builds the web apps that the website runs on. Web apps are complex applications that are designed to perform specific functions and are built into a websites’ underlying code. Back-end developers use languages like Ruby, Python, full-stack JavaScript, and PHP.

Mobile App Developers

Mobile App Developers as the name suggests create apps for iOS and Android operating systems. Mobile App Developers, who are skilled in iOS apps, use Objective-C or Swift languages. Both languages are used alongside the development tool Xcode.

Android Development

Android development is done majorly with Java, Java is used alongside a tool called the Android Studio. However, a programming language called Kotlin is starting to be as popular as Java for android development.
In this course, you will learn


Java is one of the older, more established programming languages.


This is a beginner-friendly programming language. This is because the syntax is simple and clear.


Like Python, Ruby is also beginner-friendly. It is easy to read and could be very interesting too.


This is used for web development because it is a text-based language. JavaScript is also foundational to all websites.


C might not be as easy as some other programming languages but it works well for high-performance applications.

Objective C

Objective-C also useful for creating applications on Mac OS X and iPhone iOS, Objective-C is not used as often as before because Swift appears to be taking its place but it still is an important programming language.

Programming and coding are words that are often used interchangeably. Simply put, bits of code are put together to create a program. Coding can also be described as a translator between the human language (it could be English) and the computer’s binary language. The computer after receiving the instructions in the language it understands acts according to them.

Our coding school teaches you what you will need to become a programmer. The first step to achieving this is learning Programming languages.
