Plus if you attended coding bootcamps, please share your experience as well.
What's coding bootscamp
nice. what resources did you use? and what video tutorials helped you through it? plus, it would be nice if you could share some of your work
A coding bootcamp is a crash course involving a small group of people where you'd learn how to code in a short period of time, usually 3-6 months. Some may last up to a year but such bootcamps always include a job offer at the end of the course and a repayment scheme/ payment plan to recoup money spent on training you.
WUdec:Okay so can u recommend one for me
Ain't attended one yet but there are loads in Nigeria especially Lagos
Google "Coding Bootcamps, Lagos Nigeria"
Yes, we know you devoted a lot of time but how did you really learn it
I also read “You don’t know JS” series for in-depth knowledge.
I also later went ahead to learn
Introduction to JQuery

i use udemy tutorials.
udemy and youtube videos. call on whatsapp with my number below we can talk extensively
You guys should see my signature below, I am going to help some people and i want them to come back here to testify.
Please learn how to download long video from YouTube and practice with the videos to supplement what you are reading from books. The secret of learning any programming language is to code along side your studies. With that you will develop a mental muscle over that language.
But if you have time to spare, then study data structure , algorithms , software design and analysis before delving into learning any programming language.
If you can have a good grasp of data structure and algorithms, to understand any programming language becomes a piece of cake for you. Every programming language uses algorithm to manipulate data in order to produce result. That is in a nutshell what software development is.
Most of us are eager to learn one trending programming language or the other but data structure and algorithms which the language will work on, we may not know much about them.
It is possible to become a full stack developer in 12 weeks especially in Europe. Classes are top notch and they ain't cheap. When you code for 8 hrs, Mon - Fri and the resources are numerously at your disposal. Plus your tutors are world class devs. This is why it ain't cheap.
Canada charges up to 10000 CND, UK - 5000 - 7000 GBP, SPAIN - 3500 - 5000 EUR etc.
Nigeria on the other hand charges 150k - 300k. And yes, i must agree that most of their works are shitty. With treehouse, lynda or udemy tutorials, one can design a better site than theirs in a week. What goes on in Nigeria is mostly copy and edit and its hard to see wonderful designs or concepts that are unique. This is why a lot of websites from Nigeria look the same. Nigerian web designers would never win a spot at awwards.com because they've got a lot of catching up to do.
You might find a good coder but most have no idea when it comes to design. Their designs lack a lot of creativity
If there are any good devs out there, do share links to your work on here for feedback and inspiration to others
Lamda school is 9 months and honestly that's the only bootcamp I will ever pay for. Completely thorough.
Wow, sorry to hear that. Seems like they just wanted to scam rookies. I can only imagine how much they charged
The best bootcamps are in Estonia, Russia, Spain (Madrid & Barcelona), India, Germany, Holland and Finland.
Anything Finland is always high class and super expensive, this is why they have always been a tech hub since the 90's and the best educational system in the world
Helsinki Finland is home to Nokia and other tech companies, Eindhoven - Netherlands is home to Philips and Sweden hosts facebook's central server and so on.
There's a reason why most tech companies invest heavily in Europe. Not to mention, the top 10 best hackers in the world are mainly from Europe. US or UK ain't even on the list.
UK schools are still scamming people and that is sad. I saw two good coding schools out there but thanks to your input, I am guessing its all hype.
Good looking out

WUdec:Lambda school is really good and comprehensive. 9 months long. They take their time through each module and not just rush you through the process. It takes at least a year to know the required technologies to at least land a junior developer position.
WUdec:Nigeria my dear country u jus finish us well... But let me with udemy lectures some one can still go far na?
lambdaschool is good but men too expensive I will jus use their curriculum nd guide myself
Hi alll..for dose that have/are using react please how can i create a react app ...downloaded node js buh its not working...ps using a win 7 laptop
arejibadz:U may need internet to test ur nodejs
don10ky:Please can i gt yr no so we can chat on WhatsApp been trying it since yday yet no response....please help a bro
Of course you can. As long as you can practice them every single day, get better at it and keep challenging yourself by building projects and debugging them. Anything you imagine, you can always achieve.
I highly recommend your recommendations!
They are just the best js books I've ever read.
Karlebolu:Pls bro link on how to get that book you don't know js
Thanks a lot for this input
I am am a server infrastructure guy, so i have a good knowledge of powershell scripting language,
I do not want it to end there, i'm looking at c# or Python,
thanks to the advise on the thread , would check out data structures and algorithm
@Ravern can you recommend a Good book for DS?
