About this Course

Ten minutes into this class you will make your own completely personalized version of the insanely addictive game 2048. Even if you've never coded before. Pretty cool, no?

You'll do this by making small (but important) modifications to the source code for the original 2048 game. If this sounds intimidating, don't worry. We'll teach you the basics of HTML and CSS and how they interact with Javascript (don't worry if that sentence doesn't mean anything to you yet. It will soon).

The purpose of this class is to have fun learning how to quickly and easily take an existing open source program, make some changes, and create something that looks and feels completely new. The game you create will be mobile friendly (you can play it on your phone!) and totally shareable.

Prerequisites and Requirements

Nothing!

Really. This course is for complete beginners. It is designed to help someone who has never seen computer code take their first steps into the world of programming and web-development.

See the Technology Requirements for using Udacity.

Why Take This Course

In this course, you'll learn:

  • How a computer program works (specifically small web applications like the 2048 game).
  • What HTML, CSS, and Javascript are and how they interact to make a functioning web application.
  • How to make small changes to HTML and CSS files that have very large changes in a program (large enough to turn the original 2048 game into a drastically different Udacity version).
  • How to use Github to make a copy of an open-source program, make changes to that copy, create your own version, and then host that version so you can share it with your friends.
  • Why open-source is such an amazing idea :)
