@MontBot’s real world body is arduino based. Online brain not so much xD I need to figure out a way to hook them together. lol
I can’t get to the good video of it right now.

Here is a pic from the last MontCode meeting where I was building.

xD I follow kit instructions! I have no real egr build experience.
The bot was pretty much plug and play.

What is the best way you guys think to learn or atleast get a basic understanding of coding in a handful of weeks?

I think you might be overthinking it Jared. It sounds like they will teach you from the beginning.
There are many many different ways that coding can be used so a basic understanding isn't simple. I really depends on the what you are doing with it and I'm sure the teacher will go over all of that.
If you really want to do something before class starts, I suggest going down to Microcenter and buying a beginner arduino kit.

It's really really hard to say anything as I know you are wanting to prepare for a specific class and not knowing the specifics of the course we could really send you in the wrong direction.
That being said! If you really just want to play around with arduino and are OKAY with learning things that might not even be covered in class, AND you are wanting to learn arduino's version of C/C++, this is a good kit http://www.microcenter.com/product/458549/Starter_Pack_for_Arduino and the website has a ton of information https://learn.adafruit.com/search?q=arduino&
And all THAT said... MontCode does not have many members well versed in arduino and related tech as we mostly focus on web development so we won't really be able to help with issues :/ All I can do is follow instructions. And I've been lucky so far that the adafruit instructions have been perfect. They do have a forum however which might help.

I'm sorry if it sounds like I'm sending you off in another direction away from MontCode. I hope you stick around and you can share with us what you learn because you are learning something many of us don't know!
