I am a 36 year old man who first learned that I enjoy programming in College circa 2000 when part of my Electronics Engineering Technician course included a Introduction to C programming class which I fell in love with. Since that time I had experimented with various languages such as Java, C++, C#, etc… this list goes on. While I was experimenting and learned a good deal of programming enough to pickup any language with ease I never built anything nore could I say I ever “learned” any of those languages as I was only fluent enough to do basic stuff.
So far I have been learning to code by doing the challenges as part of FCC’s
which in the beginning was very boring as I am past the beginner phase, as I’ve progressed to the intermediate scripting I am finding the course very fun and challenging. Other ways that I am learning web development is through Wes Bos’s courses on ES6 and node. For those who don’t know who he is or what he does, basically he is a Canadian web Developer, Entrepreneur and teacher who I admire. Anyway I am combining what I learn through Free Code Camp, with materials I’ve purchased.
