ABOUT THE PROGRAM
Do you want to learn the fundamentals of programming and are looking for a community and support to get started?
Have you tried to learn coding with free online resources before but found it hard to complete it by yourself and put it aside? Maybe all you needed was a little push, or someone to explain just a few concepts while you were stuck.
We provide a new way of learning the fundamental concepts of programming with all the necessary ingredients around the course for you to successfully complete it: pre-recorded videos with valuable content, community, experienced developers, space and fun. Learning the fundamental concepts of programming will empower you with higher potential in your career.
We believe knowing the fundamental concepts of programming will be a necessity in the future and we know from our own experience that the efficient way to learn them is through community power.
CS50x Austria will equip you with the right tools to take the next step in your career and will open up new possibilities for you.

Harvard University Professor David J. Malan is the instructor for CS50 (computer science), the largest course at Harvard University and the largest MOOC (massive online open course) on edX. This online course with pre-recorded sessions is the core of the CS50x Austria program.
Experienced developers will be available for you throughout the CS50x Austria course. Besides the possibility to ask questions online throughout the day, the weekly schedule provides Q&A sessions where you can directly ask content-specific questions.
A learning coach will guide you through the course, provide a structured way of learning, will hold you accountable and oversee your successful completion of the course. The learning coach acts as a facilitator between the mentors and the participants and is mostly available online.

I came into the program needing help with C for University and I left the program with a much better understanding of more languages. I was not initially expecting to have interest in these. There were some real steep challenges that would've not been able to be solved without the mentors. Overall, I would recommend.
It is a good course overall but made me sweat sometimes. Might be advanced for beginners. Maybe good to have a light knowledge about programming before starting the course.
You will fill out the online application form and upload your supporting documents.
After submitting your online application form, we will invite you to a personal interview via Google Meets.
