Amid news that coding bootcamp graduates are finding work, Udacity has tweaked the formula for its popular introductory course in programming by adding three new projects. The “Intro to Programming” program launched in March 2015. Since then, according to the company, more than 1,600 students from around the world have completed the program, and 3,400 others are currently enrolled. The company has also announced a new pricing model. Started by MOOC pioneer Sebastian Thrum, Udacity offers free courses as well as paid courses that lead to “nanodegrees,” alternative credentials awarded for online training when an individual proves his or her competency.
