Is becoming a programmer something for you?

As a primary contact for the students, I get a lot of questions every day. One of the most frequently asked questions is: Is programming right for me?

As a point of contact for the students, I get a lot of questions every day. One of the most frequently asked questions is: Is programming right for me?

You understand that I cannot always answer this question for you over the phone or by email. What I can do is provide you with extensive information and enthusiasm about programming. In addition, I can tell you that if you already have this question in your head, at least you are thinking about it and working on it, which is a good sign. The first step in the right direction has already been taken!

Career switch

I realize that of course it always remains exciting; a new step, a new challenge, a new field of work and sometimes even a career switch. Again, if you don't try, you never know. Maybe you will find something in programming that makes you very happy, where your passion turns out and opens doors for you that you didn't even know existed but behind which lies a whole new world at your feet.

If in doubt, I always recommend taking the JavaScript Fundamentals course first. During this training you will get a glimpse into the world of programming in 24 hours. We introduce a number of components step by step and at the end of the training you can already build your own website, how nice is that!


During the Programming for Beginners course you will learn the basics of HTML and CSS. You will learn how to make your website user-friendly, we will help you put it online and give you various tips on how to add extras such as a contact/reaction form.

We hope of course that your programming blood will flow faster after this training, but it is also possible that you discover that it was interesting but that programming is not for you (yet) yet. Perhaps the time is not yet ripe or our way of teaching does not suit you, but in any case this experience will answer the question: Is programming right for me?

The advantages of the Programming for Beginners training at a glance:

  1. You are not immediately tied to a long and expensive education.
  2. You can follow the training from behind your own laptop and from anywhere. So you don't have to travel.
  3. The teachers are Dutch speaking (some teaching modules are in English).
  4. You get the answer to your burning question: Is programming right for me?

All in all, the JavaScript Fundamentals course is definitely fun to try out. You can start right away!
