Foundations is an interactive introduction to programming course for non-engineers and complete beginners.
This program is great for people who are interested in a career change, want to work and communicate more effectively with engineers, or want to learn the fundamentals of coding to enrich their life.
Past students have been English teachers, designers, product managers, analysts, marketers, CEOs, directors, ballet dancers, and more!
Our course focuses on building a clear understanding of fundamental concepts used in programming so that you can learn to think and grow like an engineer. Through our Foundations course, you will be able to create logic using code, develop engineering autonomy, and practice having a growth mindset.
This is an interactive class! You will collaborate with other students, share solo-projects, and deliver a final presentation. Our experienced instruction team will be there to guide and support you throughout the course.
Our tuition is the same for remote and onsite courses.

I also appreciated how the co-founders, Kani and Yan, and everyone at Code Chrysalis are friendly and very approachable. They continue to do an excellent job of outreach and creating an active, inclusive community. I also appreciate them making their content available on Facebook, etc. Many thanks, guys, for being [a] progressive "catalyst" and continuing to make a difference in Japan. "
"Foundations was a fantastic way to enter the world of programming in a supportive environment. The patience and expertise of the instructors was invaluable when I encountered challenges, and learning alongside other students with diverse professional backgrounds added unique value to the program.
