SC Codes is a learning platform that gives all South Carolina residents free access to code education. No strings attached. What makes us so special is our high-quality, custom-built curriculum and our amazing network of mentors (all available in a few clicks of your mouse!)
Below, you’ll find a few suggestions on where to go from here and how to get the most out of your experience with us.
We recommend all new SC Codes learners start here! This course will ensure you know how to navigate the learning platform, ask for help, and get the most out of your courses. You’ll also be introduced to the best ways to connect with a mentor.
Ruby is a wonderful backend programming language for beginners to learn as its syntax is so high-level and easy to understand that it’s often considered as close as you can get to coding in English! This course will expose you to the foundational concepts needed to start programming in Ruby.
We’ve compiled a list of our favorite resources for beginners. These resources may include videos, blog posts, articles, podcasts and more. We also love when learners share the resources they’ve found value in, so please reach out if there’s a resource you’d like to share with others. And check back here frequently for additions and updates!

We would love to get to know you more through a virtual course, our monthly info session, or Slack. If you’re not familiar with Slack, it’s an easy to use (and free) messaging app that the SC Codes team and learners use as our primary communication tool. It’s also a very widely used app in the tech industry!
