Posted on: Friday, May 18, 2018

Terabit specializes in web development and design, as well as app development and design. As simple as that may sound, behind the multiplicity of websites and apps is advanced code. Around 5 – 10 years ago, unless you were in software engineering, you likely didn’t know or hear much about coding. However, now code has become a skill that is taught in school and incorporated into children’s educational games.

Whether you’re an advanced coder or just wanting to learn the basics, an abundance of online coding courses exist. Check out these online courses that Terabit’s web developers recommend:
