So i was looking at the FCC curriculum and i realized that there isn’t any other programming languages such as Java , python etc .

does anyone know where i could find a websites that offers those languages for free ??

Codecademy offers a variety of languages. The curriculum is free, but quizzes and projects are paid. Sololearn is good too. Also, freecodecamp has youtube videos for many languages.
FYI: I would personally learn C# over Java, not that I know much about either.

Okay sweet

thanks :+1:

here are some sites: lynda.com, codementor, codecademy, coursera.org. You can also learn from online tutorials, videos.

It makes more sense to learn C# in 2018, rather than C++, which is dated and has less applicability to web development.

Although C# can be considered a cross-platform language, it’s especially worth learning for anyone looking to get into the Microsoft stack and owns a Windows computer. Java is more agnostic across operating systems.

Does codementor require monthly payment to get the courses?

udacity and codecademy has some courses

I would suggest udemy when they have sales. You can usually get courses for $10 when they have these sales. I have bought several courses myself, and look to buy another pretty soon. Udemy gives you like a personal instructor who will talk you through the code, and have several code along projects so you understand. If I go this route though I do suggest really looking at the course reviews before you buy. Unfortunately some instructors are not the best in the way they present the material.

If you feel comfortable programming in Javascript and want to move into other languages, I would look at where you want be. Every language has its advantages, but a lot of it depends on what you want to be doing.

Python: Great overall language that is used by a wide number of fields. There are a lot of resources available for learning Python and specialties (Data Science etcetera).
C#: My personal favorite language, but you will be limiting yourself to working in shops that use C#. It is becoming widely used in game development because of Unity, but it also being adopted by other studios.
C or C++: If you want to learn more about how programming languages and memory management works, learn C. I would actually recommend that everyone take a basic C++ course that includes pointers and memory. It all depends on what you want to do in the software development. For a front end designer, it’s waste of time.

Look at where you want to be and look at what they are using. If you want to pursue a complete CS education, check out this: https://github.com/ossu/computer-science

edx.org is a great resource. This site offers college courses from renowned schools. For instance , I an currently enrolled in course for pyton. Edx is free to participate and you have the choice of paying for a certificate at the end. EDx.org is free.

I also use udemy and they do have good sales. But you can also filter your search for free courses, and there are some gems to find.

I have 79 courses in udemy all about programming/web dev and a few SEO courses, and I am pretty sure I have only bought 1 or 2 of those.
