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

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.
