Computer programs are the backbone of so many of our everyday activities, and yet, so few people actually understand the lines of code behind them. 

If you've ever thought about learning the basics of how our computers work, how apps are built, or just want to learn a bit about coding – now's the time.

To get you started, we've teamed up with Stack Commerce to bring you the Pay What You Want: Learn to Code 2017 Bundle on ScienceAlert Academy.

If you pay above the average (which is around US$15), you'll pick up 10 different courses, with over 100 hours of content to teach you the basics of coding.

These courses teach you a number of programming languages, include Go (Google's coding language), Python, Java, Ruby, and a bunch more.

Because you shouldn't have to pay for a university degree or an expensive course just to get the basics of coding.

Get started now.

Length: More than 100 hours

Price: Pay what you want
