Ready, set, Go!

The last programming course you’ll ever need

Programming for Lovers (P4❤️) is a free online course that teaches programming (using the Go language) by immersing learners in fun scientific applications.

Have you found that other coding resources just didn’t “stick” or hold your interest? If so, then you’re not alone! And P4❤️ is here to help.

You can meet Phillip Compeau in our intro video. Phillip has taught programming for years at Carnegie Mellon University and is thrilled to bring you this course.

“Become a stronger programmer”

P4❤️ helped me make the leap from spaghetti code to a systematic problem-solving approach for programming.
