BEST PROGRAMMING LANGUAGE: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SPcA_Lq2V0w I've been going on programming and web development forums a lot recently and I keep seeing the same question over and over: "I finished codecademy now what?" Typical advice for this is "just go build a bunch of progamming project or go build some websites for your portfolio". I don't think this is the best advice because it isn't very useful for beginners. Programming is hard, and if you've finished codecademy you may have figured out it doesn't teach you more than a fraction of what you need to know to start really building programming projects or developing websites. SO now that you've finished codecademy what should you do next? Well, in this video I put together a couple of coding websites that have really helped me improve my programming skills. 1. CSS Diner -https://flukeout.github.io/ 2. Codewars - https://www.codewars.com 3. Code Fights - https://www.codefights.com 4. Free Code Camp - https://www.freecodecamp.com/ 5. Node School - nodeschool.io With these resources you can really improve your coding skills quickly. I recommend you log on to one of these coding websites and practice the exercises daily. You will see a dramatic growth in your skill and confidence as a programmer / web developer. Trying to learn programming is difficult to do on your own and using free resources to learn the basics is a great idea - if you use the right tools. (like these coding websites) If you haven't finished codecademy (or even started) - check it out - its basic, but a very good start for those who are trying to learn programming or web development: https://www.codecademy.com/
All three of which could easily take good ideas from the other. Udacity for it's instant quizzes. Codecademy for its forums (which are good but could be better) Khan Academy for the student/ class oversight

Codecademy's Zach Sims visits Hub Culture at the World Economic Forum Davos 2015. Sims discusses the power of technology to create new jobs and new job categories, and to educate workers for those jobs.
I recently experienced a web development challenge and went to a discussion forum looking for help. Of course, it didn't take long before some elitist forum crony appeared and gave me the usual negative crap that we've all come to expect in web development discussion forums. What is very clear to me is that people who feel a need to shame and ridicule those of us who are just trying to learn ALWAYS have some kind of self-esteem issues. That's why they do it! They lack decent communication skills and self-esteem. They are generally unhappy with their lives. So, their only means of getting power is by shaming and ridiculing people who come to their forums looking for help. It's a form of bullying and it's pathetic. Anyway, the message is clear. STAY AWAY FROM WEB DEVELOPMENT DISCUSSION FORUMS. It's just not worth it! Your time is too precious.
As a student, Zach Sims was already a prodigious talent. A political science major at Columbia University, Sims worked with startups like GroupMe and Drop.io while building an impressive resume up until the point that he accomplished "everything" he wanted in college. It's then, with just one year to complete before earning his bachelor's degree, that Sims decided to drop out the Ivy League institution. Key to his experience after dropping out, though, was the fact that he didn't stop educating himself. And what he'd found after leaving Columbia was that people were better off learning things by actually doing them. It is with this approach that he and former classmate Ryan Bubinski founded Codecademy, a startup which launched in August 2011 and teaches people how to code for free. Codecademy was an instant hit. In just the first 72 hours after releasing its first lessons, the company attracted 200,000 users who were eager to develop a skill that Sims says will be an ever essential tool for the next generation of professionals. "In 20 years, programming will just be another blue-collar job or related to almost every major employment field," he told the New York Times a month after launching. With Codecademy, Sims and Bubinski are leading the way to the future.

Check out my latest Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VCrrLdxEXtA Top 6 online coding courses - Free Online Coding Schools for Programmers - Free Programming courses There comes a point in everyone's life when it's time to take more control of your destiny. If you've built your own site using free WordPress themes or Drupal themes, you might be craving more control. It's time to take an online coding course, learn to code yourself and built your site, your way. Many accessible educational tools have popped up that make learning new skills more straightforward. The daunting task is finding one that's right for you and your learning style. I've tested and reviewed some of the most popular schools being talked about on the web today, to give you a better understanding of the pros and cons of each. Here's my list of the web's best online coding courses. ( 1. Code School ) Of all the tools I dug into, Code School – owned by Pluralsight – was one of my favourites. Not only does the site look great, but it offers quality content and a great student experience. You can follow a 'path', which will guide you through a succession of different courses, or you can opt for a single course on its own. There are also 'electives' on offer – additional courses you can take to supplement your path. The videos are quirky and fun in an after-school special kind of way, which is a refreshing break from typically dry video tutorials. It's like watching Bill Nye explain it, which is to say, comforting. After viewing a video, you work on your own tasks – relating back to the video if required. If you get really stuck (like I did) you can 'buy' answers with points you've earned from other classes. Code School offers some courses for free, so you can try it out for size, or you can buy a monthly subscription for $29/month. If you sign up for a year, this is reduced to $19/month. If you're looking to splash a few bucks on a learning tool, I would recommend spending your money here. ( 2. Skillcrush ) Skillcrush is a unique online coding course, and the option here that most closely resembles an actual curriculum in a classroom setting. Users can enrol in either a one-off three-week course, or a three-month 'blueprint' (a design or development-focused path that takes students through three courses that build on each other). Once enrolled, students have access to not only a classroom setting chat forum with their fellow students, but also to office hours and one-on-one time with their instructor. Skillcrush is currently also offering a free 10-day coding bootcamp. ( 3. Udacity ) Udacity offers robust guides to many different topics, with seriously advanced courses on everything from robotics to design theories in everyday life. All courses are summarised before you even begin, outlining the difficulty level, why the course is important, any prerequisites for taking it, and the project you will complete at the end. This meant I could easily scan through and choose what suited me best. ( 4. Code Avengers ) Code Avengers walks you through each process with very simple, step-by-step instructions, starting with minor tasks, while you watch what happens in a mini phone simulator next to your editor. Tasks weren't so difficult that I felt the need to 'cheat', but they weren't so simple that I was just copying and pasting. ( 5. Khan Academy ) What's interesting with Khan Academy is that you hear someone talking while they write the code, which feels natural, like you're sitting down with someone. The courses were straightforward, easy to follow and I could then transfer the concepts to the simple exercises. Sometimes, there are mini-quizzes following a demo, which made me think about things conceptually and helped me understand what the code was doing a little better. ( 6. Hack Design ) The 'courses' here are just collections of aggregated content, whether that's articles or videos, from around the web. There isn't anything to ‘complete' by way of tasks, but if you're after some resource recommendations to help you learn more about a specific part of design, I would turn here. There are also tool lists with recommendations from people who use them. i'LL LIST SOME ADDITIONAL ONLINE CODING SCHOOLS IN THE DESCRIPTION OF THIS VIDEO.
