Note: This article contains some promotional links for different code learning resources.
During the first months of my coding journey, I was always looking for new resources that could help me speed up my learning process. If you've just gotten into coding, chances are you either started coding with Codecademy or Free Code Camp, both excellent resources that I still visit from time to time.
I only managed to try Treehouse's 7-day Free Trial but of all the places I've learned about Web Development, this was the one that I found the most engaging and visually compelling. It helps you give a very good structure to your coding journey. I didn't really learn using Treehouse because I wasn't able to afford it, but if I would have had the money, I'm sure that I would have sped up my learning.
The next resource I would like to recommend, also has its ups and downs, but it complies with my Audiovisual needs and has helped me stay engaged. PLUS it can be so much more affordable than any of the previous options. This has been one of my greatest aids in the last couple of months, and that would be Udemy. Udemy has as many courses as there are people teaching them. You can find courses on basically anything, even non-programming related topics. What I like the most about Udemy, is that, you can learn about very specific topics and generally, the lecturers go in depth and have you make projects that will help you improve your skills.
Some of the Udemy courses that have helped me really get a strong grip on my Web Developer skills are:
One final thing about Udemy, the courses can be pretty expensive but they have discounts all the time, I've been able to purchase most of my courses there for less than $20 bucks, and you will have content for months to come.
I cannot conclude this article without mentioning two of the resources from which I have learned the most as well.
I found it hard to get just the right resources that would help me be an effective learner. However, even though these methods worked for me, they might not work for you in the same way. So its up to each self-taught programmer to find the resources that are right for you.
