The next stage of my journey…
Picking up from my last blog post, you’re probably wondering where is the best place to start when it comes to learning programming. I guess the answer to that, like most things in life is subjective, what works for one person may not work for another. That said, having tried a number of the (mostly free) resources available online today, I found Codecademy.com to be the best starting point.
Great what next?
Once I’d completed the courses at Codecademy I moved onto the free resources offered by Apple in the form of their iTunes U Stanford University material. I’d known all along that I didn’t want to be a one trick pony, I never wanted to ‘only’ learn Objective-C and never really understand what goes on behind the scenes or never really understand the way in which the computer interprets the code. I could have dived straight into the iOS programming course offered by Stanford at that time however sticking with my original approach I opted to take the entry level Programming Methodology course (CS106A).
In my next post I’ll talk more about the courses offered by Stanford and my experiences.
