Recently, I’ve had some people approach me asking me what are some good online resources to learn how to code and program. As a strong advocate for self-learning, I think it’s important that students take full advantage of the fantastic education resources available on the Internet. Why not spend an hour or so a day enriching your mind about important 21st century skills instead of posting mundane Facebook status updates on a new haircut?
The resources below are all free and do not require paid membership.
If you are a more advanced programmer who is interested in solving Mathematical and logic problems, then Project Euler is the site to be on! The first 50 problems are doable in one sitting, while the newer ones are more complex and challenging. You can solve the problems in any language, as you are only required to submit the final answer. It’s a great way to dabble around in different languages! If you need help, there is plenty of support on the forums.
Whether you’re a beginner coder or an advanced programmer looking for something new to learn, there are plenty of well-written resources out there! What are some of your favourites?
