Parents often ask me the best way for their children to learn coding Independently. PCMag.com released an excellent article looking at a variety of online learning resources to help people learn to code. My personal favorite Lynda.com is also their number 1 choice.
Coding is a critical skill these days, and not just for web developers. Whether you’re building a personal website, assembling a professional portfolio, creating a blog, or contributing to an online publication, knowing even the basics of coding can go a long way. Of course, if you’ve ever tried to learn how to code—and I’ve taken many a course over the years—you know that it can be a frustrating and overwhelming process. Online learning programs can make the education process less intimidating, enabling you to move at your own pace, seek help when you need it, and repeat lessons as needed until you have a real grasp on how and why your code is working the way it does.
