YouTube and Udemy are filled with amazing tutorials to learn pretty much anything around web development, coding, and programming.

One point though - some video courses you’ll find can not appeal to you because of teacher accent and other things. Play with speed and lower it to 0.7 or some value you find suitable for you to follow. Do not reject them on first sight as there are a lot of excellent teachers with bad accents. Try to get best of any.

Take a look at code academy, I started there myself when I knew nothing. YouTube is always helpful but sometimes can be tricky starting out, Udemy has some good courses but keep an eye on the pricing they always cycle around from crazy prices to 11.99 probably once a month finally Pluralsight is also good but more expensive.

I pretty much learned all my skills by reading things like Experexchange and watching Youtube. My advice is to have a use case that you want to solve before you try to learn. I tried many times, unsuccessfully, to learn Python because I didn't have a solid use case. I went through courses on classification and knew how to build the Iris classifier, but had no idea how to apply that to any situation that I currently had.

PHP, on the other hand, I learned easy because I had tons of ideas for web sites and web applications. If I wanted to design a site to interact with a form, or a database it was easy to learn because I was seeking out solutions to real world problems.

Anyway that's my advice for tonight!

You can find some courses on Udemy or Tutellus, but I recommend you before learning a programming language learn some programming logic. You can find some good videos of this on YouTube

I also had similar learning path but I used problem solving diversification among several languages. Like take same problem I try to solve it with C#, Python, NodeJS, PHP, Go, etc.

Later on when I discovered APIs and everything went much easier and learning curve flattened for me. Now its easy to switch between stacks on the fly.

I've tried more than a few courses on YouTube, over the years, and frankly feel they are mostly terrible. (LoL)
What most of them are missing is the fact that what you really need to do with any language is start with a key, and learn the elements of a language, in order to be able to code anything from scratch.
In my experience, starting with pre-made code from places like StackExchange is one of the best ways to reverse engineer certain processes, and learn how to do things from a practical standpoint.
I did a video on my early experience learning to code, here:
DISCLAIMER: I don't call myself a coder, of any kind. I have spent bursts of time learning, over the last several years, and this is what I've found to be true, personally.
I can figure-out how to piece things together in simple ways, but I haven't coded anything from scratch, from absolute ground zero.
Most of the time, I just look for no-code services, or software solutions to problems, and in most cases that gets me where I want to go! :)
Best to you in figuring-it-out, though, dude! :eek:
