When I say “learning to code on my own”, I don’t literally mean all alone.
One of the great things about any interest is that there’s a community of people just waiting to give you a hand or advice. I have luckily been able to start to become involved in that community where I live, with great help from one particular individual.
This blog will catalog my journey of learning to code and (hopefully) move into a software development without any resources other than friends I make and print/online resources I find. I will list out the resources I find to be most helpful, and potentially document my foray into some of the more “in-depth” resources.
As such, here are the resources I’m relying on currently for a project I’m doing for a non-profit:
- Scotch.io – a great online tutorial site for pretty much anything web development
- All of the documentation pages for the various apps and frameworks I’m using:
This is, by no means, a complete list. One of the things I’ve found is that there are many, many resources needed when building out a full site. From databases and database connection frameworks to site design, authentication, password hashing, etc. It’s a step-by-step process, but, if you take it slow and don’t get overwhelmed, it all comes together in time.
