A self-paced online course to help you solve coding problems with confidence and ease!

Newbie Coder Problem Solving School is a unique 101-level, language-agnostic online course designed to help new coders develop strong programmatic thinking and algorithmic approaches.

In other words, you'll be able to approach your coding problems more confidently, with less stress, and get to your solution FASTER.

Build the problem solving skills you need to succeed as a developer

Back in 2003, I started out in college as a Computer Science major.

101-level classes were great! I was excited to see things happening, and knowing that I made them happen.

When I graduated on to Data Structures and Algorithms, the Computer Science degree began to rapidly increase in difficulty.

Problem sets left me panicking, because there were so many abstract steps involved that I couldn't wrap my head around.

I had no idea how to approach a coding problem, and I didn't realize why until I was nearly 30 years old—when I decided once again to learn how to code, and become a developer.

An undiagnosed non-verbal learning disability had only amplified my difficulties—I probably could've gotten more time on those problem sets!

All of my office hours time was spent asking about actual code, just to try to get something to work.

But often, I wasn't even solving the problem I needed to solve. It was like I'd regularly get 2/3 way to a solution… then sputter out.

I needed problem solving skills, y'all. And NOBODY was teaching them, especially not in traditional academic institutions.

Problem solving skills will help your career

It's a major problem that we didn't don't have newbie-level problem solving skills readily available to people teaching themselves to code.

The overwhelm that can come with being stuck on coding problems, and not getting the help you need, often leads new coders to believe:

  • They're “just not good at coding”
  • They're wasting their time
  • They'll never be able to learn enough to get a job

By solving the problem of the lack of problem solving, we can bring in a fresh wave of problem solvers, ready to take on the world!

I am creating Newbie Coder Problem Solving School as a solution to the hundreds of responses I've heard from students over the years. Their feedback clearly tells me that people learning to code are not confident in their ability to approach algorithmic problems.

Who is Newbie Coder Problem Solving School for?

Newbie Coder Problem Solving School is a 101-level online course for new/junior-level coders looking to:

  • Strengthen their problem solving skills
  • Learn programmatic thinking
  • Learn to pseudocode (write manually) your solutions before writing code
  • Break down complex problems into smaller problems

You NEED this course if you:

  • Are brand new to coding and already terrified of coding problems
  • Get “blank screen paralysis”—like, you don't even know where to start
  • Don't feel confident enough to even ask others for help

The course itself is completely language-agnostic—so learners with all types of language preferences will be able to gain valuable skills and perspectives!

Not sold yet? Got questions?

If the course isn't for you, you'll probably know. These stories of fear and frustration simply won't resonate with you.

But even then, the course itself will have a 30-day money back guarantee, and I'll personally refund you if you're not happy with it. (But you will be!)

What's included:
Lifetime access to NCPSS and ALL future updates
✔️ The NCPSS Problem Solving Workbook
✔️ Access to NCPSS Community Forum (coming soon!)
