Learning Resources



Code Academy (Completely free and suitable for beginners.)
Udacity (Great videos and easy-to-learn format. For free classes, go to “Catalog” and search “Free.” I would encourage anyone who wants a future in computer programming to complete one of their paid certificates programs.)
(You learn to code through challenges — be ready to work hard.) (Aimed for 6-12 and higher)
GitHub (Every programmer should have an account with Github. You learn from other programmers.)
EdX (These are challenging courses. You can take for free or pay for a certificate. I find the Udacity courses much easier to follow, but these are excellent in terms of instruction.)
Khan Academy (Is there anything you can’t find on this site?)
Code Conquest
Data Camp (has around 9 free courses with free membership)
