Open source

A free platform/course for beginners to learn programming in Python

About


futurecoder is a free platform/course for people to teach themselves programming in Python, especially complete beginners at programming. It is carefully designed to reduce frustration and guide the user while still ensuring that they learn how to solve problems. The goal is for as many people as possible to learn programming.

Donations are primarily for keeping the site up and running at futurecoder.io for anyone to start learning immediately, although an excess may go towards development work.

I've been working on futurecoder for just over a year now. It's coming along very nicely. I'm just adding final touches to make the site shiny for newcomers, then soon I will be posting about futurecoder on various sites. Hopefully I can get donors and contributors interested in helping.

Currently hosting is just $7 per month because the site has virtually no active users yet. When I advertise the site I will set it to use a larger machine for a few days in anticipation of traffic. Billing is proportional to time used so this shouldn't cost too much.

The site is currently hosted on Heroku for simplicity but this makes it hard to scale horizontally. The plan is to switch to Google Cloud in the future, after the preliminary release.

If after accounting for hosting costs there is an excess of $15,000 then I will quit my job and work on futurecoder full time as long as an excess of $5000 per month is maintained.
