Have you ever felt that the world is more and more about technology and you are somehow left behind? Have you ever wondered how to create a website but have never had enough motivation to start? Have you ever thought that the software world is too complicated for you to even try doing something on your own?

Well, we have good news for you! Programming is not as hard as it seems and we want to show you how fun it can be.

The tutorial will not magically turn you into a programmer. If you want to be good at it, you need months or even years of learning and practice. But we want to show you that programming or creating websites is not as complicated as it seems. We will try to explain different bits and pieces as well as we can, so you will not feel intimidated by technology.

We hope that we’ll be able to make you love technology as much as we do!

What will you learn during the tutorial?

Once you’ve finished the tutorial, you will have a simple, working web application: your own blog. We will show you how to put it online, so others will see your work!

It will (more or less) look like this:

Figure 0.1

If you work with the tutorial on your own and don’t have a coach that will help you in case of any problem, we have a chat for you: Gitter. We asked our coaches and previous attendees to be there from time to time and help others with the tutorial! Don’t be afraid to ask your question there!

OK, let’s start at the beginning…
