I am currently involved in the first phase of the Nanodegree for Front-End Web Development. It positively surprised me. In just a few months I not only learned to understand and code HTML, CSS, JavaScript and jQuery, but also learned a lot of mind-liked positive, and really motivated people. This is not just any course. This is something truly valuable! People from any age, walk of life learning to code together. Newbies, people graduated from Computer Science, Career Changers. This is definitely worth your time!

Harvey Abaya says:

I work in the same company as this guy. He is an extremely talented developer and knows his stuff well and even better than some of those who has learned software development in school and industry. I’m impressed with Udacity’s program.

Here’s the thing, he already has a Bachelors Degree. So how helpful is a Nanodegree for someone who just has an Associates or just a High School education?
