Where can I learn Languages Codecademy Doesn't teach?


#1

This is a copy of a post I originally had in Codecademy Forums years ago.
I thought I would post it again so people can benefit from the linked material; as it was made so long ago CC has since made some of the courses listed such as SQL and Java but for completeness I will leave these sections in so people have additional material they can use.


If you use any other good sites add them to the list, this post is a wiki so click on the little green pencil in the top right to add to the list. :smile:
Thanks

Stanford CS106A Awesome class. It covers Java but more importantly it covers program design theory that many people have asked for. It can be followed up with CS106B and CS107 also available on that website, for more theory combined with (non-Java) practical.

#12

Do you know of any free websites that cover Swift? (besides youTube :slight_smile: )


#13

Not seen that many free ones around and not tried any myself.
Been able to find this though:

https://www.bloc.io/swiftris-build-your-first-ios-game-with-swift

And a free trial at treehouse:
https://teamtreehouse.com/tracks/ios-development-with-swift-20


#14

Awesome thanks a lot :slight_smile: I will stick with youTube tutorials until I find some good sites that teach it :slight_smile:


C# language
#15

I know a good website to learn all sorts of coding from.

https://www.sololearn.com/Courses/

That's a direct link to it, there are plenty of courses there. It's helpful for beginners, it's where I started from. I've completed all their courses.


#16

I also found this basic website that teachs stuff for web development. HTML, CSS, Java, PHP, etc. While most of the stuff it teaches Codecademy also teaches, it does teach some stuff that isn't available to learn here yet.

http://www.w3schools.com/

I hope you all find it helpful.


#17

Some things are outdated on that site, be wary of that.


#18

That is true, but any information may turn out useful. There are still some things on that site that isn't taught here yet. I haven't found the "perfect" free teaching thing everyone looks for, but at least we can put together all our knowledge from multible learning programs.

I would like to point out that you shouldn't pay for their certificates, just go through it if you would like to learn the basics. It is a little out of date.


#19

Another place.


#20

It also teaches Responsive Website Design, a very important thing to learn.


#21

A post was split to a new topic: Chatbot… thoughts?
