Hey Kemi!


Skyler and Daniel mentioned good resources for learning basic programming. I would also add Udemy (they have free and paid for courses) and w3schools (they help with web development and some database manipulation). Also, youtube has some channels that go from general concept to very detailed, depending on what you want. You should also look for coding groups on social media platforms such as Facebook or Twitter since there are people there with experience that can both answer your questions and give you recommendations on books/videos depending on what you want to learn specifically about programming. Don't be afraid to get out there when learning. If you ever find yourself with a doubt that may be more specific to your code, stackoverflow is a good resource where people post their doubts online and others give them possible solutions/explanations as to what could be the problem.


Good luck on your coding journey and have fun! :)

Nicole Raquel recommends the following next steps:

https://www.udemy.com/ - udemy (Note: udemy courses aren't accredited. They are more for fundamentals and are given by both professional and nonprofessional instructors alike. Like with any course, I would suggest reading the comments before enrolling into anything) https://www.w3schools.com/ - w3schools https://stackoverflow.com/ - stackoverflow

Skyler’s Answer

Hello Kemi,


I have used and recommended CodeAcademy as a free and helpful way to learn various programming languages. It's self-paced and can take you from beginner to as far as your desires take you! Good plan to try and get a bit of knowledge and experience before diving in head-first!

For fairly straightforward stuff you can check out learnpythonthehardway. There's also a number of good open courses offered by various places (e.g. MIT):
