Note from Jeff:

"I am not a programmer.  Well, that is not entirely true.  I recently became a programmer.  

Two weeks ago I took one of GiiLD Beginner Challenges.  It took me about 4 hours (I am not quite done with it, shhhh!).  Log in and check out my Pathway.

For the last 11 years, I have run R&D for a tech company where training programmers has become a passion.  So I decided to see if GiiLD really works.  And it does!

 

 Using GiiLD made the entire process comfortable.  I felt safe and supported.  And you know what was great?  My best advice came from other beginners.  I followed the Pathways of other learners and used some of their tricks to figure it out.  

If you are a parent of a budding programmer, or a mentor looking to help in GiiLD, I strongly recommend trying a Beginner Challenge.  If I can learn to program, you can too!"

WE MIGHT HAVE TOLD SOMEBODY IN THE PAST, HERE'S YOUR TASK, HERE ARE THE EXACT STEPS YOU NEED TO TAKE TO ACCOMPLISH IT. (WE) SHOULDN'T DO THAT ANYMORE. (INSTEAD) HERE'S THE OUTCOME I WANT; YOU FIGURE OUT HOW TO GET THERE

No more Courses!

Ever taken one of those screen to screen courses?  
Yeah, the goal of those courses is to prepare you for the 5 exam question; not prepare you for real work.

 

The same is true of most academic institutions.  Sadly.   

 

GiiLD is different.  We combine Project-based Learning and Personalized Learning to engage each learner - from beginner to advanced.  

Welcome to GiiLD!
