An introduction to programming

This free course that can be followed through the excellent educational platform Coursera, will teach you how to program in Scratch, an easy-to-use visual programming language that even a child can learn.

Furthermore, and much more important than the above, this course will allow you to learn the fundamental principles of computer science and will help you think like a software engineer.

Although the correct title of the course is in English (Code Yourself! An Introduction to Programming), you can follow it through the subtitles of the videos that can be read in Spanish.

The course is offered in two forms, one free, with which they have access to the course itself and all the materials. The other way is to pay $49 to get a certificate showing that you have completed the course.
