This is my first Udemy course:
From there, I took more courses on topics that I'm interested in. And built projects along the way. Importante yung own projects para mapractice mo yung natutunan sa course and also pandagdag na rin sa portfolio.

What course is better?
Hey guys. So on my learning path I've decided to buy a course on Udemy for web-dev, and I don't know which one is better:
- This course from Colt Steele, I've heard A LOT of positive feedback on this course, from reddit as well, it's the most popular course and highly rated and so on. Or
- This course from Angela Yu, this is highest-ranked course, the description of the course looks more in depth. And this course is also quite popular (by far not as much as 1-st one). And also this course promises to have plenty of projects to apply for Junior pos. with, which is quite good thing.
I will invest plenty of time in this so i'd like to make right decision. They have a sale now for a few more days.

I do not mind at all. Yes, I am a web dev / fullstack dev using React/Redux/Node/MongoDB. The bootcamp will not guarantee success, as a lot the people I graduated are still looking for jobs a year later. Many just gave up and went back to their original non-tech jobs. What will guarantee success is not stopping. Don't give up, keep going even if you feel like you're not getting anywhere. One day it just clicked for me. I suggest learning on Udemy or trying out www.theodinproject.com before you attend a bootcamp because it is extremely fast paced to learn all of it in \~4 months. All of this is assuming you're not an engineer already, if you are there are many I know who attended the bootcamp after getting their CS degree and did just fine.

Any suggestions on what I should try next?
Hello! I've messed around with programming, off and on, my entire life. October of last year I decided to take it a bit mroe seriously. I started Colt Steele's Web developer bootcamp on Udemy (https://www.udemy.com/course/the-web-developer-bootcamp/) and finished it. I also completed most of the FreeCodeCamp exercises. I felt like I learned a ton from it but not quite enough to get a full stack dev job. I finished in in January 2019. From there I made a simple website for a small local business that some friends owned. I practiced a bit more with some codecademy courses but my learning kind of died off a little. In the summer I got my current job as a Web Support Specialist at a University. Right now I primarily help provide user support with a server migration that we are doing. This of course isn't a developer job, but I got it because of my experience from learning to program.
If I want to get a full stack or front end developer job, what should I be doing next?

Skill up! Udemy courses are on discount sale and other few free courses from Harvard, Yale, MIT, etc
Note: This is not a promotion for Udemy. If you have always wanted to learn that new skill or upgrade existing skills but did not have the time or opportunity. Well now is the time. Various courses are on discounted sale on Udemy. I bought a spanish course since I always wanted to learn spanish and have been learning the basics on and off since 2009 I guess. I am at a beginner level.
Anyway, lots of new courses to learn are available. Personally since I am a web developer, I can recommend a few web development related courses.
Udemy Web Development Bootcamp - https://www.udemy.com/course/the-web-developer-bootcamp/
This is the spanish course I am learning - https://www.udemy.com/course/el-metodo-spanish-1/
This is a free course on android app development - https://www.udemy.com/course/learn-android-application-development-y/
This is your chance. Today. Go grab it. Whatever you wanna learn. Whatever you wanna do. Take control in your own hands. GYOW!
Edit : u/spacejesus01 provided link to 64 more free courses from Harvard, here is the link -

So I did not take any extra steps beyond pursuing my associates, however I had a friend who's mom was a manager for a QA department at a software company and I was able to secure an interview for an internship through those means.
I started as an intern writing automated test scripts, then started receiving multiple promotions from there. I'm still at that job but I have since moved on to product development.
If you already have a degree in finance; I would see about bypassing the degree and go to Udemy or FreeCodeCamp on youtube or their site. Udemy has better courses in my opinion but they do cost money (they are listed as 200 dollars but they go on sale all the time; I would not pay more than 20 dollars for a course).
In terms of what courses you should take, I would recommend this course: https://www.udemy.com/course/the-web-developer-bootcamp/
The teacher is good and you'll learn the full stack (front end, server-side, database, networking, etc.). I took this course when they were promoting me to web developer and I felt pretty competent when I started getting assigned tasks.
From there, you should start building out a GitHub portfolio if you don't want to look for any standard qualifications like a degree. GitHub is a place where people publish code repositories for private and open source projects. It's almost like a social media for code. If you have public projects on there, this gives employers the chance to look through your code.
In terms of finding work; I would recommend looking for local slack communities for developers. There are tons out there, and typically they will have a channel dedicated to job postings, and you can start looking at posts for entry level job opportunities or start networking to find more information about entry level openings in your area.
Work from home is blowing up, but I suspect that WFH companies may be harder to get your foot in the door with without having decent experience or standard credentials (i.e. BA in CompSci) just because they have a wider net from which to catch candidates.
Hope that helps, happy to give any advice I can to someone looking to get into the industry :)

I'm in the same boat! My plan is to self-study and then take a bootcamp once I've saved up the funds. I would encourage you to check out Udemy as they have some amazing courses. As he came highly recommended on Reddit, I bought Colt Steele's The Web Developer Bootcamp 2021 course.
Good luck on your journey!

This is a great intro to everything in web dev.
It will give you an idea as to whether you prefer frontend or backend dev, or both (full-stack).
Once you've done that, if you're feeling like frontend is for you. Do the udemy course I linked above with the guy from Academind.
£30 for the two courses is exceptional value.
And as I said, freecodecamp is an awesome resource and community. And is FREE.
If you'd prefer to go all in and do a coding bootcamp, there are a shit ton of bad ones, but I know people who have completed NorthCoders bootcamp and they had a great time, and are a really high standard.

Hi all! I've recently started this web development course on udemy and it has been great so far. I've conquered the HTML and mostly through the CSS portion of the course. One thing that I feel this course is lacking are enough hands on exercises to really solidify the stuff taught. Particularly, I would like to solidify my knowledge in CSS and be able to practice building and styling websites that are usable. Are there any resources anybody would recommend that allow me to practice this aspect of web development?

As a bootcamper myself, here is a tip for you. Finish this first about 1/2 of it https://www.udemy.com/course/the-web-developer-bootcamp/ first. Then take the bootcamp. Finish the course while in the early stages of the bootcamp. This should be enough for you to be able to graduate around top 3 in your batch which makes it easier to find jobs after the bootcamp.

Haven't taken MTH 231. Is that a version of discrete math?
The CS290 assignments are pretty straight forward for the first half to two-thirds, and then it gets a bit more challenging. Their approach to teaching JS they tell you about the idiosyncrasies, but not the basics. Some people like this approach, and some people don't. For me, I don't.
The final is all over the place. My best piece of advice is work on getting a high score on all the assignments, put as much as you can on your cheat sheet for the final, and simply hope for the best.
As well, you can follow Colt Steele's web development course on Udemy which is more structured and better taught than 290. It can be found here

Freecodecamp.org is a pretty nice resource.
Colt Steele's udemy program was pretty fantastic too, though I already had some experience when I went through it so I don't know how it is as a very new person. Anyway it's https://www.udemy.com/course/the-web-developer-bootcamp/
He just updated it too so it's all very new and relevant stuff. If you've never looked at udemy, their pricing is kinda stupid. Don't pay more than $15 or so for this course or any others. If it says it's like $120 or something, look for a discount code online, you should be able to fine one to knock it down to the $15 range

Starting Web Development Bootcamp - any advice?
Hey everyone! I hope you’re all doing well. I’ve joined this subreddit in consideration of some recent career pursuits to work toward learning how to code and up-skill on my web development expertise.
Quick background - my experience is between academic administration and technology. I have my Associates, Bachelors, and a Masters in Higher Education - currently 27 and working for a technical startup. Through my career history both in college and post grad - I’ve done quite a bit of technical work and operations for both university and startups which has included management of websites/knowledge base sites.
I’ve had very intermediate experience coding HTML, Java, and CSS - I’ve worked closely with development teams on code updates, learning how to set up redirects, and have picked up general bits of knowledge along the way. I essentially understand the foundations of certain code languages and have used these (since MySpace days!) to either do small coding for companies/school, Wordpress projects, or explaining code/use cases for articles I’ve written respectively in my current role.
For the last year, I’ve really been exploring an opportunity to invest in that will benefit in the long term. I love designing user experiences, am super passionate for content, and always found coding fascinating - I joked if I had the patience and brain to be a Computer Science or engineering major I could’ve pursued (advanced math is not my strongest so I didn’t go this route).
I can truly see myself building on this experience in the next few months-year with the right discipline, practice, and would want to bring this type of experience into my current/future career work opportunities and use it for personal web projects.
I’ve signed up for this self learn program on Udemy (love their website): https://www.udemy.com/course/the-web-developer-bootcamp/?utm_source=email-Pro
My questions are:
Is it possible to learn web development and be successful in it without a formalized degree?
What has your experience been like working or pursuing web development?
Is there any specific or major learning curve for someone whose not strongest in mathematics (I can manage if needed/sort out algorithms) but am generally curious if this will inhibit me?
What are your personal pros and cons?
I’m really looking for some general insight as I start this! I snagged the course for relatively cheap so hoping the return on investment to learn web development was a wise purchase.
Thank you to everyone and anyone who takes the time to connect here. I really appreciate it.

My friend did something similar - granted, he has an engineering background and is thus more marketable to companies, but he recommended going through a udemy bootcamp and going from there. The most popular one to my knowledge is a series with Colt Steele (https://www.udemy.com/course/the-web-developer-bootcamp) - which cost me 27 bucks. I'm currently still working full-time, so it's basically self-study at my own pace, with my own goals:
- start my own business (non-PT related)
- pivot into webdev
- sidehustle making websites for people
It's not like I've been successful with it yet but I tried doing unstructured self-study and felt like I was going nowhere. I think the "bootcamp" style course gives me enough structure to get to where I want to be

You can also look at The Web Developer Bootcamp 2021 from Colt Steele. He has updated it and it's also pretty complete.
2 points • fantamonkey
https://www.udemy.com/course/the-web-developer-bootcamp/ I recommend this course. There's also www.freecodecamp.com. however, after you learn the languages, you'll need to do some projects to build up your portfolio. I'm still a beginner so I don't know where this will get you exactly but it's somewhere to start :)

UDemy has really good courses that will teach you nearly everything about a particular language or technlogy stack. I like UDemy better than sites with in-browser code editors because you learn how to set everything up on your machine from the get-go and learn to troubleshoot all the little problems that arise from that, which makes you a better developer. The instructors walk you through every step, so it's not hard but they also have forums that the teacher and their aids frequent, and usually get back to you within a couple hours.
I'd probably recommend this course. Colt is a great teacher. Use Honey or search for coupons via Google. Most courses you can get for under $15 and they're well worth the investment because they all come with tons of content that will take you a couple weeks to get through, but they're thorough: https://www.udemy.com/course/the-web-developer-bootcamp/

We won't start for a few days/until i have a handful of people to go through the course with (Whichever comes first). I want to do it with a few other people + a tutor, to make it as close to a real bootcamp as possible. The only thing separating this course from a real bootcamp is the peer/peer review aspect and the hands-on help that comes with those bootcamps having actual instructors/tutors. So if i get a group and 1-2 tutors i believe it will make it all the better.
Just to reclarify though, the course is not free, it's $20. Also im not affiliated with it in anyway i am just vouching for it's curriculum and Colt as an instructor.
The course is $150. but it's only $20 when you first sign up an account as it gives out a "new member sale" but you can make as many accounts as you want to get this new member discount for any/all courses on udemy everytime you make an account.

> Just be prepared to learn a lot about chickens, for no reason at all.
Lmao, this is one of the things I like about his teaching style. Nice way to make things a little more fun.
I can confirm that the updates are awesome, I was about 90% done the original program then decided to restart when he updated it. I was wondering about this course specifically. It's supposed to be a follow up to his Web Dev Bootcamp.
With the updated Web Dev Bootcamp it looks like he goes over some of the stuff that the Advanced course covers. So I'm not sure if it might be more worth it to find something else.

It would be manageable, especially if you're studying full time. A little bit of prep work before 290 will make it a breeze, as in a couple hours of work each week until the final project.

ovo ti je trenutno najbolji (najkonkreniji) kurs za uvod u programiranje - pravljenje web stranica, jer danas je web sve
košta 12$ a ima ga i na torentu
kurs je beton, sadrži sve osnovno što treba za uvod u programiranje i pravljenje web stranica i jako je temeljit, i ne zahtijeva nikakvo predznanje
nakon savladavanja osnova web programiranja (HTML i CSS), preporučujem učenje React koji je iz godine u godinu sve traženiji

I broke into the tech industry without a CS degree. I think this is a great post and would like to contribute by sharing my experience.
Tech is the best way to achieve upward social mobility. It's more merit based than other careers. Success is determined more by skills than credentials. And at least in theory, the skills you need can be acquired for the price of a laptop and an internet connection. It's not easy but you will be rewarded if you work hard and stay focused
Currently I write software for a bank. I never got a CS degree. Instead I did a combination of self teaching and a bootcamp program. I also taught at a bootcamp so I know a bit about them.
Self teaching: There are a tons of high quality video courses out there that cost next to nothing. Personally I like udemy.com. I got started there with a course called web developer bootcamp. This is an intro level course aimed at people with no prior experience. I took it ages ago but looks like it's been kept up to date. It had something like 50hrs of video content. There are a ton of these courses out there, pick whichever you like. Just read reviews to make sure it's a good one.
Bootcamp programs: There are a dozen or so of these around the city. Generally they cost around $10,000+. Some are only 2.5 months of full time mon-fri class. Others are half a year of part time classes you can take in the evening. Some allow you to pay less up front and the rest once you get your first job. The one I went through (Juno college of technology) offers something like this. I'd recommend self teaching before commiting to a bootcamp. These are fast paced programs and you might get lost without prior experience. Attending a bootcamp is not necessary! Like I said, skill is more important than credential. I think the biggest benefit is it will help you get the ball rolling with interviews. Employers will take you more seriously if you have something like this to put on your resume.

Hey! After CS50 Intro, these are courses I've noted to be interesting :
- FullStackOpen, given by the University of Helsinki (Fullstack JS path)
- The Web Developer Bootcam 2021 on Udemy, by Colt Steele, which I've heard a lot of good things about (Fullstack JS path too). If you want it for cheap, just add it to your cart then come back the next day, it should be at \~10$
- And obviously the CS50 Web path, which is more oriented toward Python with Django.
I also found some books to be quite good as a overall knowledge. The Pragmatic Programmer is full of good practices and tips to become a better developer, it's a nice read 30min before sleeping.

This is no beginner stuff.
What you can do is take a full cycle development course. I took this one few years ago, it’s good and will give you the right direction by teaching you the basics. After that, you will be able to understand more marketable topics and move on to learning more complex frameworks.

I have my eye on pop already but wonder if I should go dual boot.
Is there a distro that would be considered the "best" for programming while still being beginner friendly?
I heard pop would be good for gaming.
My idea was to use pop for example for gaming, surfing, office stuff and then have another distro I use for programming only so I not get distracted by other things when I'm on it.
As for the programming stuff, this is the course I've signed up for on udemy, so it would be great if the distro would have programs for stuff covered there.

I took this course, which has a lot of great material but I think things are taught out of order. Either way, you get to step through every part of a full stack application: https://www.udemy.com/course/the-web-developer-bootcamp/
Treat it like a primer instead of a "I watched all the videos and followed along the code, now I'm ready for a job" course. Find other courses on the topics he covered and do a real deep dive if you're not comfortable. In this course, focus instead on "How does it all fit together?" instead of trying to memorize every single thing - you'll need to practice for months/ years to really "get it."
It's good to watch it and then try to build a similar app to the one he builds with you. Instead of camping sites, hook into some API and offer xyz information or design the same site but with a SQL DB and do the front-end from scratch.
I honestly can't stress enough how important it is to jump into a project before you think you're ready, and just eat the elephant one bite at a time.

I'm doing the course by Colt Steele https://www.udemy.com/course/the-web-developer-bootcamp/
It's about the same price for 47 hours of material. He's very approachable and easy to learn from. Has a large team to answer questions and look through. Really enjoying it. He has a number of courses, I think one may be an amalgamation and a bit newer than this. But definitely well regarded and for less than $15 I feel like I've gotten well over a first year uni course from it (in those subjects covered). Good luck.

These are 2 completely different languages and if you don't know html/css/js then I highly recommend going through Colt Steele's frontend course https://www.udemy.com/course/the-web-developer-bootcamp/
You can learn both side by side but I would do the Web Dev Bootcamp first. He teaches how you can get everything going with Node as the backend, then you can take what you learn and build your ASP.NET Core backend to service your API requests pretty easily imo.
This is what I did and I would recommend anyone to do the same.

Hey thanks for taking the time to reply! I'm actually doing a Udemy course by Colt Steele called The Web Developer Bootcamp myself! I actually (for now) opted out of doing a bootcamp since all boot camps are remote, which is almost the same as taking a course like this online. I may change my mind in the future but for now I am learning all the basics first.
Did you find it was useful because you already had prior knowledge + experience? Like if you took the bootcamp without what you knew would you be able to say that you would be able to understand comprehensively enough all the material covered (at least half for now)?
I do think having mentors helping being an invaluable resource, but from what I can see the career services seem to be the selling point of these bootcamps as getting that first job is always the hardest.
What was the reason you took a bootcamp if you were already working in the field? Did you just want to re-brush up on your basics?

Firstly, technical skills are definitely something you can learn on your own. I'm not devaluing a CS education (my own undergrad degree was in CS), but if you want to teach yourself to code, there's never been a better time. There are a lot of places online with information on pretty much any skill you might want to learn. You might try checking out some of the courses on Udemy. The list prices are expensive, but they have tons of sales where they're very cheap. For example, this course teaches you a lot of web development stuff, and it's on sale for $11. Don't be discouraged by not knowing stuff. Every single programmer started out by not knowing how to program. Your situation isn't any different.
Second, tech skills are definitely NOT the only path to being an entrepreneur. There are lots of different kinds of businesses that you can start, many of which have nothing to do with tech. Try reading some stuff on business concepts, and on entrepreneurship.

I was in a similar situation. Was an “artist” at that age making very little money. Definitely not enough to support a family in the way I wanted.
It took me about 6 months to learn enough programming to where I felt comfortable enough to start applying. I learned as much as I could: front end, jquery, angular, react, node, SQL, no SQL, java, python, django, etc. I wanted to cast a really wide net when trying to apply.
In going through that and helping others try and make a similar career change, I’ve found that taking a single online course can be a good weed out process. If full stack web development interests you and you can complete a full course on it, you’re probably on the right track. Same thing is true if you’re more interested in back end development.
So if web development, for example, interests you, I’d recommend this course (I took the same one years ago and thought it was very well organized): https://www.udemy.com/course/the-web-developer-bootcamp/
If you struggle getting through that because lack of interest, motivation, or discipline (and you don’t want to try a Java or python one), then you may not enjoy a career in software.
