Coding & Programming
If you wish to learn more about how to Code and Program on a computer, you have come to the right place. There is a lot of great material on the internet, so this will mainly serve as a place where I place helpful links to tutorials, courses, and videos to help you get started.
For coding, there are many different languages you can learn to code in. They all have their pros and cons, with some being easier to get started in and others being more powerful in the long run, despite being more difficult to learn.
To get started, we would recommend starting with either Ruby or the C++ Programming Language. Ruby is much easier to get started with and is used primarily for creating web applications. C++ is a little more difficult to get the basics down and actually build something, but is much more powerful in the long run, being more of a general purpose language that can be used to create computer programs that actually run on operating systems such as Windows or Mac.

Please get started by watching some of the general programming videos below and when you are ready, take a course through the links below. I have also included links to online communities/forums where you can ask questions if you get stuck in the courses. In reality though, the best way to learn programming is to spend a lot of time on your computer practicing the exercises you come across in the courses.
