  • Ive dabbled in it a little bit by downloading the latest version of Python and going through some of their course but quickly fell off. Wanted to see if there's a better alternative to learning this.

  • I'm not a programmer but when I tried to learn it I found a good place to start is codecademy.com

  • Pretty tough to self learn honestly, but yea code academy is a good one.

    This. I'm completely self taught and it's my current career. You may want to focus on a front end and back end language.

    Might need to go back to trying to learn again. I took some classes in College, but it wasn't my focus

  • Def gonna try to learn code in my late 20s after I get further with my design skills.

    FreeCodeCamp is where I started. If you are interested in web apps. They also have a Python curriculum now.

    Really? Sounds awesome

  • If you want to get started try w3schools.com. They cover a whole lot of languages, but don't go very in depth on any of them. Then once you know the basics try codingame.com. It doesn't have beginner tutorials but if you know the basics it's a great place to improve. It basically has a bunch of mini games where you're given the rules and told to write a program that plays the game. You can even get competitive with it and compare performance with others on the site if I remember correctly.

  • If you鈥檙e interested in web development, I (completely biased) recommend The Odin Project theodinproject.com

    Less hand holding than FCC or Codecademy.

    I鈥檓 also a Core member / maintainer Happy to assist the fam, in discord or otherwise.

  • Youtube tutorials
    MDN/w3schools
    Do a project or two in every coding language you learn
    Learn web dev first then evolve your career from there on
    Be aware that the programming sphere is very very elitist and that you'll spend hours at a time on small bugs because mfers don't wanna respond to your questions cause they consider themselves too smart
    Do leetcode exercises for interviews
    Coding's not hard but you need to love coding and be very inventive and creative while doing it in order to succeed
    It's a great thing to start doing, wish you the best

  • Genuinely find a tutorial on YT that covers all the basics and build from that
    Most courses are advanced enough and meant for people who already know how to code extensively in certain languages
