Dabbling in the coding world (again)

It’s been many years since I’ve attempted entering the world of programming.  I was 13 years old when I first started making my own website through a service formerly known as Express Pages.  I don’t know if any of you guys had the honor of using their service but it was awesome learning basic html.  I remember referring to Funky Chickens it was an exciting time! I remember I was a huge fan of B*Witched, Lilo and Stitch, Pokemon, and basketball.  Ah… the nostalgia.  Am I trying to regain that sense of high?  Probably. …but more importantly I am sick and tired of feeling helpless whenever I feel like exploring and idea or changing something in my forum and blog and I have to rely on other people to solve my problems for me.  Don’t get me wrong, support people are amazing and those that do it voluntarily oh man I am so grateful! …but I want to learn to stand on my own two feet – learn how to fish per say.

I guess I stopped trying to learn coding because I was intimidated by all of the fancy jargon… c++, javacript, joomla, whatever I have no idea what these things are.  But… I’m going to learn.  Where to start? I don’t know.  I’m hoping I will stumble the information I need if I just hang around webmaster forums long enough. Wish me luck!

    Well, JavaScript is a Web programming language… Joomla is a CMS (content management system) and C++ refers to computer programming. If you are looking into writing code for the Web, I Highly suggest W3C. They are there so people can learn Web development the right way. Additionally, Look up Team Tree House. If you can afford 25 a month they are amazing with how they teach. All of their teachings include videos and hands on training. I think it would be worth the subscription for you.

    I too want to learn programming and is working towards it. Though it’s not that hard and easy as well to try it out. The learning process is slightly tough and that you have to make few sample websites and see what went wrong and keep on coding anything which makes you feel attracted towards making websites.

    I also use CodeCademy. I haven’t been on the site in a long time but what I did on there helped me learn a little bit. If you are going to use anything to help you learn, use that. I’ve always had trouble with coding. It’s mostly the fact I have ADD and I can’t really concentrate on anything. I need to start learning again. I am sure I’ll need to know these things in the future for some reason.

    How has this been going? Coding is almost just like a foreign language…repetition and practice is key. I agree with other that are recommending CodeAcademy as a place to learn code, and YouTube has a lot of helpful screen-cast tutorials on most aspects of coding or building a website. There are also some good courses on Udemy (www.udemy.com). It’s a lot of trial and error in the beginning but once you get the hang of it it gets easier
