Coding isn’t like sports or something. As long as your brain still works and you’re still willing to learn you could be an 85 yo bed ridden invalid as long as you have a computer and an internet connection you can code to your hearts content.
Free code camp is probably one of the best places to start. I don’t work for them and I couldn’t care less if they get more people on their site so I’m not trying to pitch anything. Do the lessons in order and try not to skip any. Do not try to rush through them. Take your time. You’re gonna be garbage at it for a while but that’s OK. Don’t worry about it. The more you try to rush the longer it’s going to take you to learn.
I personally don’t like books but some people do, some also like videos or just figuring it out themselves. As for me I like structured lessons, coding challenges and just spending time playing around with stuff in the language documentation. For the most part though the best way to learn is to just try to build things and keep screwing up until you can make half decent stuff. If you’re afraid of failure then coding isn’t for you. The whole job is basically about figuring things out that you don’t know.
The best advice I can give you is that coding isn’t like learning accounting or something. There are a million ways to do the same thing. As much are programmers like to think of themselves as engineers, it tends to be more like an art than a science. So creativity and expression are super important to be a good coder. Take your time, be open-minded and most importantly, be patient.
FreeCodeCamp Curriculum when you start
W3Schools for simple explanations and references
Codepen for tinkering with stuff
Actual most important advice. Do something coding related every single day. Even if its just watching a 5 min video on YouTube. Do to coding meetups. Don’t get intimidated by more experienced coders. And just start building stuff as soon as you can.
ps. you’re 27 and you think your old lmao. what is it with people in their 20’s always in such a hurry to get old. you got like 50 years left at least before you dead from old age. you’re not even half way yet. whats the rush.
