Huge, huge, huge “definitive” list of learning resources for programming. It gets updated in real time and uses the Github API too. It is massive.
This was linked from a comment on the /r/freecodecamp subreddit. I came across the Reddit post when I was doing a bit of research on Node.js + FreeCodeCamp.
My Google Plus feed for Makeuseof recently had a nice guide to help when preparing for a programming interview. It also featured links to some websites to practice coding, such as:
I’ll add these to my arsenal of learning programming resources. 🙂
Wow! Actually, my exact words were “Oh my gaad!” or something; that was what I said when I started the next section at the start of my Freecodecamp journey – HTML elements. My surprise was at the big resources page called Let’s Explore the Universe of Programming which seems to have a ton of links to loads of free programming books and even free University courses!
This blog post is being written in the time I’ve set aside for “learning to code”. The philosophy I picked up from a Youtube video that featured Freecodecamp was to aim to do 25 minutes of coding a day; and to do 3 days in a row. Then 3 weeks in a row and then 3 months in a row. This is especially if you really want to code but you are finding it hard to get started or to focus etc.
It’s the first day of my second block of 3 days and I still haven’t actually done any coding yet! But, I have installed Gitter on my smartphone and joined the chatroom for Freecodecamp (don’t forget the Facebook page and the local clubs list with links to the Cardiff and Chepstow clubs and the FCC subreddit). So, in my last few minutes I am going to look at the first proper tutorial (which looks pretty easy if you’ve done lots of HTML before).
Ooh! Almost forgot to link the Github Readme on the main page.
Don’t forget, for those feeling a bit visual, there is always Pinterest to get completely lost in. Here is what you get if you search for Python on Pinterest.
I followed one Pin and eventually came to an absolutely huge and well structured collection of resources for learning Python via a list of online resources for programming in general.
Thankyou to Mr. Jobcentre guy for pointing me in the direction of the free courses on the Open University such as these two tagged with “Python”.
