Learning programming languages is not like it used to be and is now very easy to teach yourself by using online interactive sites. When I was still learning the basics, there were very few opportunities online that helped you to get to grips with coding and the ones I did find were difficult and frustrating to use. Now there are loads, and they are detailed, explaining everything you need to know to learn and master programming languages without too much effort. I think everyone has the potential to try coding, and if you can handle it, you will grow to love it.
Even I sometimes check online for tips when I am confused with something. There are lots of professionals out there that are sharing their knowledge with advice, screen casts and best practices. Choose from these great sites that provide interactive lessons on learning languages such as HTML, Ruby, CSS, PHP, iOS and much more.
Fun fact: Learning to code late at night is better than doing it during the daytime. Just kidding. That’s only my opinion.
Code school is the next step once you have finished some beginner’s courses on one of the above sites. When you feel ready to expand your skills and knowledge, here is the place to go. The courses offered here are much more detailed, and you can gain a lot more experience. Most courses are free, but some require a monthly fee to access everything, every course has lots of information and challenges to try out that can be difficult at first but have hints to help out.
This is where to go when you have a plan or purpose in mind, rather than teaching program languages it is more focused on certain projects such as building an app or website. There are lots of different choices depending on what you want to know. If you want to build a website choose from an interactive site, WordPress theme or responsive site, or whatever your website idea is you should find the related course. Watch and learn from the lessons then test your new skills in a quiz to see how much you remembered. Tree House is perfect for people that don’t want to learn code completely, just certain parts that will help them along the way.
