Go to the piratebay website and type Udemy. There are loads of web development boot camp courses that will come up. There is one developed by a Rob Percival. I love that course. If you have the money, please buy it. If you have more money, enroll for Udacity full stack developer course. I don’t think you will find that on torrent website sha

We all know you are here to do business that's all. Happy business

Is okay how we understand things differently. Funny enough I didn't charge for the services I rendered. If it is business trust me there will be a price tag.
But is your thinking sha not mine

Do you know how to use Git and GitHub. If you don't there is a free course on Udacity with i found very helpful. Learn it and put your project up there if you want someone to looks at it and make suggestions and such. Also, one of your first projects should be creating a personal portfolio for yourself. Like an online CV that showcase what you've done.

Also, for everyone trying to learn to code, be it web development or whatever, take time out to learn git. It took me less than 2 days. that way, we can all collarborate on projects together.
Thanks, will look into that

Great thread, I'm actually interested in learning programming, but with a faulty laptop which the possibility of getting it back repaired, is in a months time, I want to ask if it's possible to learn the basics using a Phone. thanks

Yes, you can learn programming languages. But to be a better programmer, you need to practise and practise.

Also, I would advise you to start not with Java, C/C++... Choose other easy programming languages like Python/PHP/HMTL.

Yes, you can learn with a smartphone if you've got the right applications. There are free text editors/IDEs/Interpreters on Play Store. I can suggest QPython (for Python), ScriptIt (for Javascript), QuickEdit (my favourite Android text editor). There are others. Download, test, stick with what works for you. Some apps have a learning curve, like Terminal IDE. Read the app description thoroughly before downloading.. I can suggest tutorials also, but I figure there must already be loads of recommendations in the thread. So I'll just add devdocs.io.
It's a site that has collected documentation for several programming languages and technologies in one place. You can select what to save offline (it's cached), then add a shortcut to your homescreen.

I recommend learning java first, it will help shape you up. Dont even think about learning cpp, becus it wont be easy. First get the basics of OOP from java and then you can move to the next level. Here is a little of my writeup. And for the record am 16. https://sparklesix.wordpress.com/2017/11/04/starting-up-with-programming/
