A computer science career can earn you the big bucks, but exorbitant student debt really takes away from your success. With this Complete Computer Science Bundle, however, you can score the skills of a pro without the massive loans.

This training bundle features eight different courses that will help you take your first steps into the world of computer science — no matter your current skill level.

Here’s what you’ll learn:

1) The foundational programming language: C

First, you’ll start off learning C, the powerful, foundational programming language. This course will walk you through technical concepts like loops, strings, and more to lay a foundation for a more robust skill set.

2) One of the most important tools in web development: Java

You’ll dive into Java, which is used in everything from games to chat platforms, in two different courses. You’ll learn object-oriented programming through encapsulation, abstraction, and polymorphism, and, in general, how any computer program works.

3) How to make sense of large amounts of data through SQL

In this course, you’ll learn the handy SQL language, and how to manage large amounts of complicated data effectively, create tables, populate them, and retrieve their data through databases like MySQL, SQL Server, and more.

4) Automation and machine learning techniques using Python

Python is one of the easiest and most powerful programming languages to learn. In this course, you’ll learn to write Python code to automate your workflow, implement machine learning techniques, and more.

5) Object-oriented programming principles using C++

C++ powers everything from desktop apps to SQL servers, and while it seems intimidating, this course breaks down the basics for you through 75 real-world scenarios. By the end, you’ll master objects, classes & other object-oriented programming principles.

6) All the cool things you can do with Raspberry Pi and how to build products for the internet of things

This course will give you a taste of how to tinker with Raspberry Pi’s physical parts and how to use it to automate things in your home, like LED lights and remote controls.

7) The hows and whys of top tech companies’ successes and failures

Last but not least, you’ll really get down to the business of things by taking an in-depth look at how some of the biggest tech companies found their success.

Get your coding on with The Complete Computer Science Bundle for $19 from the Daily Dot store — that’s further reduced from the original sale price of $39, and 94% off the original price of $367.
