Two summers ago, my daughter was bored. As she has strong logic skills, I suggested she start learning to code using free resources on the internet. I pointed her to online courses she could go through… and now she is passionate about coding and is training in Computer Sciences (at a school called “42”).
Throughout my learning journey, I've come across various resources that have helped me master these languages.
Here are my recommendations for resources, tools and content to help you along the way. I’ve provided the links for each of these in the description.
Another resource — one that is not quite free but that is relatively cheap — is a website called “Humble Bundle”. They sell games, programs, and, more importantly, books. Quite often, those books are about programming. I’ve bought books on front-end development, Python, and blockchain programming. And there are two nice things about Humble Bundle. The first is that you choose how much you are willing to give for the bundle You can end up buying books for a minute fraction of what you would buy them elsewhere. The second is that most of the money goes to charity. I say “most” because they take a percentage to run the website, and if you click on the link in the description, a small percentage will also go towards helping this channel.
Once you’ve done the React tutorial, you might want to continue with the Next JS tutorial, which is also very instructive and fun.
And of course if you prefer to learn Angular, the Heroes tutorial is good. And it has the advantage of being in Typescript, so it can also serve as an introduction to Typescript — or at least, that’s how I got to learn TypeScript. I’ll probably take the time to go through it once they update it with Angular Signals.
And of course helping you learn is also the purpose of this channel, so if you’d like to keep learning with me how to think like a developper … I’ll see you in the next video !
