Are there people from Nigeria here? I am interested in learning coding. I am literally a beginner beginner. What advise do you have for me?

i’m not from wherever u live

I would like to learn development. Can you guide me to resources? Preferably free ones

Okay so if you want to go for webdevelopment:
go to https://www.freecodecamp.org
and start the first course
https://www.w3schools.com/html/default.asp

if you want to learn the other one (data science etc)
https://www.learnpython.org/

Beautiful. Thank you very much.

Follow the FCC curriculum and try to finish up to the Javascript section. Follow FCC instructions especially this too:

There’s a good chance that you would get distracted with the vastness of information on the internet if you look around too much. Try and focus on one resource. I suggest FCC (freecodecamp.org/learn), and once you feel you’ve got some good grasp on the basics, then go check out other tutorials and what not.

You’ll learn a lot here.

Oh thank you very much for this advice.

Hi Faith,
Nigerian here! Started my Web Dev journey in March 2020 with Udemy and FCC courses. How has your journey been so far?

I am not from Nigeria. But I am happy that you are having an interest in computer programming.
For a beginner, it is better to start with C/C++.
You can start it with Udemy, FCC courses, etc. or by consulting a book. Most books are easy to understand and have enough questions for practice.

Starting with the freeCodeCamp Javascript curriculum is good. I would not start trying to learn from a book.

That good that you have set up your mind.
I wish that you excel the course soon.
Good Luck
