My 15-year-old daughter just launched her first Android mobile application today, and she started with this course. I'm so proud, would recommend this course!

Simply put, this course radically changed my 15-year-old daughter's life. I wanted her to learn some new skills besides her school work, and she had a keen interest in computer science. We had some courses that we might have been interested in but had had no idea where to start. Plus, among so many platforms to choose from, I had been looking for someplace to provide her with the best study material and authentic certification. Most importantly, a course that understands a student's problems to learn and grow. Well, we finally decided to go with UPI, and I'm going to tell you - I do not regret it a bit. A month or two later, she kept practicing and building projects - well, today, she launched her first Android mobile application video game! I'm lifetime worth of proud of her today and would like to thank all the teachers and UPI's course for giving her the best possible. I just enrolled my younger son as well this week!

Very good beginning for someone without any basic knowledge

Marilee Switzer

It's a very good beginning for someone without any basic knowledge. I loved the way that we touch more than one language like Html, C/C++, I found this experience great to start my web programming journey.

I recently graduated from the University of Philadelphia with a major in Finance. However, I have always wanted to do something in computer science but had no coding experience. I took this class two months ago, in May 2021, and completed the course. I did projects to enhance my skills and used UPI's "Connect with Professionals" program to see if I could now make a career into it! I recently applied to a few jobs and got my offer letter as a junior software developer in Microsoft today! I want to thank UPI, professors, and others for helping me learn and grow. I would definitely recommend this course for beginners :)

I was a first-year student in college with a computer science major. I had no idea how to code or cope up with my classes before I took this course. Totally worth it! To be able to take courses at my own pace and rhythm has been an amazing experience. I can learn whenever it fits my schedule and mood. I would highly recommend taking this course if you want to be introduced to [programming and start building cool projects!
