Welcome to the kick-start of this 10-part series! Each part will focus on a different category and will be featuring free resources for learning web development. Of course, there will be resources I will miss, so, feel free to reach out to me on Twitter @elyktrix if you have an addition you think should be included.
We all know there are an endless amount of options out there when it comes to learning web development and all we need to do is “Google it” but that can be an overwhelming task some days. So, I’m going through my library of bookmarks and doing some digging for those resources. Let’s get to it!
Part 1 – Online Learning Platforms
In alphabetical order:
“Enroll in BitDegree’s online coding classes and easily get your programming certification. Join coding classes here and take your career to the next level!”
“Codecademy is the easiest way to learn how to code. It’s interactive, fun, and you can do it with your friends.”
“Choose from hundreds of free Computer Science courses or pay to earn a Course or Specialization Certificate. Computer science Specializations and courses teach software engineering and design, algorithmic thinking, human-computer interaction, …”
“A coding bootcamp with software engineering, data science, and cybersecurity courses – online and on-campus. View and compare Flatiron School’s coding, data science, UX/UI design, and cybersecurity courses.”
“Learn to code at home. Build projects. Earn certifications. Since 2014,
more than 40,000 freeCodeCamp.org graduates have gotten jobs at tech
companies including Google, Apple, Amazon, and Microsoft.”
“The Jamstack is taking over developers by a storm. It has never been easier to create beautiful web experiences and applications to end-users. On jamstack.training you can learn about the various aspects of this new stack and get more familiar with the technologies and best practices…”
“A nonprofit organization helping people learn to code, land a job, or hire tech talent.”
“800+ free video tutorials created, recorded, edited, published and maintained by Scott Tolinski.”
“Learn MongoDB directly from MongoDB University. Free online training courses and tutorials designed to equip you with the skills you need to succeed. ”
“Learn to code in Python, C/C++, Java, and other popular programming languages with our easy to follow tutorials, examples, online compiler and references.”
“Looking to learn some web development skills on your own? We love that. Our team has created these resources to guide you through a handful of computer programming topics.”
“…a place where developers could help developers by sharing knowledge, tips, and tactics to get better at their craft. They wanted everyone to learn not only how to get better at the mechanics of coding, but to understand the deep decisions at the heart of creating awesome code.”
“SoloLearn has the largest collection of FREE code learning content, from beginner to pro! Choose from thousands of programming topics to learn coding concepts, brush up your programming knowledge, or stay aligned with the latest coding trends.”
“This free course is go-at-your-own pace and has 4+ hours of video lessons that will teach you, from start to finish, how to get your very first website online.”
“Free test automation courses with videos, transcripts, quizzes, credits, ranks, badges, and certificates!”
“The Odin Project is one of those “What I wish I had when I was learning” resources. Not everyone has access to a computer science education or the funds to attend an intensive coding school and neither of those is right for everyone anyway. This project is designed to fill in the gap for people who are trying to hack it on their own but still want a high-quality education.”
“Advance your career with online courses in programming, data science, artificial intelligence, digital marketing, and more. Built with industry leaders.”
“Learn any type of computer programming on Udemy today. From web development to mobile development, to game development, to machine learning, Udemy has courses from top-rated instructors.”
“This high-quality curriculum is carefully designed to teach you job skills as a programmer. You’re going to learn a massive set of skills ranging from fundamentals of programming and computer science, data structures and algorithms, state-of-the-art tools, libraries, and frameworks.”
Now I know that there are a lot of options here but I hope some of these will be the perfect fit for your learning style. Many of them are 100% free while some also have premium courses and plans also.
Stay tuned for Part-2, which I will post on 7/27/2020. We will dive into coding games! I love learning through both building and playing games and I think there will definitely be some resources you will enjoy.
If you are enjoying this 10-part series, please consider donating a coffee to keep the blog going and me awake! Thank you!
Until next time.
