There is just so much out there these days when it comes to learning to code. I keep hearing there is a shortage of programmers, but you wouldn’t think that with all the resources being built and advertised to teach anyone to code.
I will build a “Resources” page with this blog because others who come after me might find it helpful.
And I love organizing information. I mean love it. Give me a mess and all I see is all the fun I will have organizing it. No joke.
Just since yesterday’s post here is what I have come across:
2. Again from HtHaP, Jennifer Dewalt built 180 websites in 180 days. Wow! She blogs about it here. Can’t wait to dive in to that.
3. I asked Reuben Ingber from HtHaP about other useful podcasts and almost immediately he gave me a few, including Novice No Longer. Listened to the first podcast and it looks perfect for someone who wants to build their own app. Which of course I do, along with 10 other things. And thank you to Reuben for continuing to be awesome.
4. I’m a big reader so I’ve started compiling a list of books to read. One that caught my attention and held it after I read the introduction was “Learn to Program” by Chris Pine. May have to swing by B&N on the way home.
5. Scratchpad.io is a cool looking realtime HTML/CSS editor. Nathan Bashaw is the proud creator of it. Another HtHaP interview btw. Seriously, if you are starting out like me, listen to this podcast.
So yes, I will not want for information in my coding quest, but I need to decide on something and commit to it.
I know after picking up golf and poker over the years I get addicted to learning, I just want to make sure I learn the “right” stuff at the right time.
More to come.
