Please I'm New And Need Materials To Get Started by JIMMY1393: 1:02am On Sep 30, 2020
Good day, please I want to venture into programming and I'm struggling where to find video courses that I can download, doesn't matter the size, I have unlimited data, so far I've only been able to get a free video course for JAVA...im looking to start with web development and maybe from there work my way into other aspects of programming and after some research seems I need to learn HTML, CSS & JAVA....so I need videos for CSS and HTML.
Thank you

Go to YouTube and search for any language you want to learn. Since you have unlimited data then go to piratebay n search and download premium udemy course of any language you want (very large o some de enter 5gb for one video).

Thank me later

hello, I'm glad you have taken a big step by wanting to learn coding. I always love to see people join the tech world.
Starting with web development is a very nice idea, depends on you but if I'm to advice you on web development journey I'd say HTML -> CSS -> Javascript.
After that you can start learning web frameworks.

Learning platforms I'd recommend
Youtube:
1. freecodecamp (start from there, you will get any course you want)

2. thenetninja

3: traversymedia

4 Mosh Hameni

5: florin pop

6: Bitfumes (PHP and Laravel)

7 Academind ( i recommend this also, I pereonally learnt javascript there)

Online platform where you would get cerifications . You will have to pay to get the courses
1: Udemy (I'd recommend this personally)
2: Plaurasight
3: Lynda.com
4: Coursera
5: Code academy.

Sites you need when you need solutions to a bug or problems.
I only have two I use most times ;

Google and Stackoverflow(community of software developers)

Moreso, coding is a process, you can't learn everything once... it takes practice, dedication and discipline. Always make sure as you learning, you are also building projects with what you've learnt so far with that you learn better and fast

If you need anything I'd love to help too!

Enjoy coding bro!

There are enough videos on the net to exhaust your free unlimited data.

Most courses you will get on freecodecamp channel on YouTube are courses that are being paid for on udemy, codeacademy and the likes ... They are so detailed.
Regarding certifications, on udemy for instance, you will have to pay for the course you want to learn, then take the course and you will get tested during the process... just simple questions...
After completion, you will get the certificate. Most things i learnt as a web developer was on the YouTube channels i stated earlier, it was only Javascript i learnt on Udemy....
My advice learn the basics well! I hope this helps.

Hi everyone, I will like to know why JavaScript isn't working on my PC. I do embed my scripts in my HTML codes, and then run. On running the codes, oy the HTML codes would work. I've tried it on all 4 browsers on my PC, including chrome and Firefox, the outcome were still the same.

Note: JavaScript has been enabled on all browsers.

Thanks!
