Special offer: In addition to the free game development session you'll get for supporting Take Up Code, if you sign up for the $10 game development reward tier, you'll get 3 more free game development sessions. Take advantage of this to learn how software is really written. It's not like what books or online videos show.

Thank you for supporting Take Up Code. Your support helps thousands of people each week learn how to code. And you get bonuses to help you learn how to code too!

There's nothing extremely complicated about programming. It doesn't require a lot of math like many people believe. In fact, it often resembles the way we do things in real life. When you listen to an episode of Take Up Code, you'll get real understanding. Not more questions and a vague sense that something doesn't fit.

You get the benefit of short explanations that make sense. Wherever possible, you'll learn through examples familiar to you if you've played any video games. You don't need to be a hard-core gamer. But it's a lot easier to learn something when you're having fun.

Thank you,
Wahid Tanner

Goals
12 of 100 patrons
Learn how to setup your own Internet web server or your own Linux computer to support website development. Setting up your own server to host a Wordpress site is a huge task. Wordpress itself is a quick install but there's quite a lot more you can do to make it secure. I researched all this and setup a virtual Linux server with email support, FTP, multiple Apache website support including SSL for greater security, hardened MySQL database, and of course, PHP to run Wordpress. During all this, I took careful notes in case I had to do it all over again. And it's a good thing too, because I did end up starting over a few times.

When we reach 100 patrons, I'll post detailed notes of this entire process for you to use. This will save you at least 20 hours and even more frustration. Learn from my experience. This goal is for all patrons.
