A One Month course is unique in that it combines video tutorials with 1-on-1 human support, and deadlines. Over 60,000 students have used One Month’s computer programming courses – you can read some of their reviews here.
The company was started by Columbia University Business School faculty Mattan Griffel and Chris Castiglione. Columbia University currently uses One Month’s online coding courses to upskill their business school students.

What past students think
Going through the ‘Programming for Non-Programmers Course’ made me realize — it is doable! By me, by you, trust me when I say this, by anyone! Thanks to One Month and their innovative approach to teaching. I learned how to create code from scratch, and create a website without having to go through the excruciating pain of feeling incompetent.
