Thinking of a new career in web development, but not ready to jump in yet? General Assembly’s Dash is the perfect tool for any newbie who wants to dip his or her toe in before making the plunge.
So what exactly is Dash? It’s an online course that teaches the basics of web development through projects done in browser. It’s free, and it’s also fun!
Dash was once a tool used as pre-work for incoming students, but once General Assembly saw how popular and helpful it was, they decided to make it available to everyone. Back in 2013, GA’s Co-Founder, Brad Hargreaves, spoke to The Next Web and explained why Dash is such an effective tool:
“Hargreaves says that General Assembly’s platform is one of the better computer programming services out there because it’s ‘project-based’ and because of this, it’s more fun and motivating to watch something cool come together as opposed to memorizing abstract and unfamiliar concepts”
