Learn How To Write Code - And Enjoy It!

Would you like to learn how to write code? It’s not as hard as you might think.

  • Coding lets you create your own games and applications.
  • Coding can be worth a high salary if you’re looking for a job instead.

Even more important than the apps and salary – it’s fun too!

I’ve been doing this for almost 30 years and you know what? It doesn’t really seem like work to me. Or to other software development engineers that I’ve worked with.

It doesn’t take a lot of math. You just need to get started and Take Up Code lets you learn at your own pace over time. Check out the Game Starter Template that will give you starter files and everything you need to learn how to program by quickly creating games using a solid foundation.

For just $7, you get all the starter files, a 77 page eBook that fully explains how to quickly create your own games, and a 323 page eBook that shows you how to start coding C++. One of the games you’ll learn about is based on an actual Google technical interview question.

Game Starter Template

Learn how to code by creating your own text-based games in C++. Includes 2 sample games to get you started. Great for RPG, strategy, and puzzle games.

How about you?

Would you like to work on high-tech projects that you enjoy?

You can learn this and it really only takes a desire to improve your skills.

Just like Alain says below. He went from absolute beginner to writing two games in his first month. I remember him telling me how much he enjoyed the classes and also how it made him feel like he was actually doing something.

Takeupcode was one of the coolest thing ever, Wahid is a walking encyclopedia. I was able to build two games during my first month of coding. I recommend using take up code, you won’t regret it.

TakeUpCode classes have been extremely beneficial for me in my journey to learn C++. Wahid is more than willing to go the extra mile in making sure you understand each step before moving on, which allows for thorough comprehension of the program you are building. I would recommend TakeUpCode classes to anyone that wants to learn how to code from a patient and very knowledgeable instructor.

Rushton W.

TakeUpCode classes have provided me with a strong foundation in C++ and C# programming. The instructor has the experience and patience needed to make programming accessible to beginning programmers and is always willing to make the extra effort necessary to ensure a student’s understanding. I would recommend a TakeUpCode class to anyone looking for a more personalised resource on the path to becoming a programmer.

How Do You Get Started With Coding?

The most important part is to begin. Coding is a skill that takes time to learn and should be done in small steps over time. It can be difficult to start a project. That’s why I recommend that you start by building games. If you can code a game, then you can code anything. Games are a great place to start because they’re fun. I’ve turned the live classes into step-by-step guides that will help you begin. But you might still have questions:

  • Where should you begin and how to turn an empty project into a working game?
  • How do you know if you are on the right path?
  • Will your game be something that people enjoy and want to play?

Click the button below to learn more details about the simple C++ Game Starter Template System including what you can expect from two eBooks on various pages. This system:

  • Shows you exactly how to use the starter files to create games in as quick as a few hours.
  • Gives you a framework to build on so you’ll know you’re on the right path.
  • Lets you create multiple games without any extra distractions.

I’m a never before coder wanting to expand my skill set as computers are involved in EVERYTHING now. Wahid takes a complicated subject and makes it easy to understand in nice little informational nuggets.

I am relatively late to learning about how computers and programming works but have started college classes and have begun learning. I have grown to love the Take Up Code podcasts because Mr. Tanner breaks down topics to a basic-level but without losing depth in the reason for learning that topic or its uses. I am so glad to have found these podcasts!

Wahid Tanner does a great job explaining complex topics in a way that makes sense. He provides a unique mix of high-level discussion and in-depth exploration into each topic. I especially like how he gives context to the way things work and explains why certain conventions are followed instead of just saying “that’s just how it is”. Keep up the great work!
