How have you found the getting started process? I feel like there's a TON of information available and it can be hard to find good starting places for beginners.

Hey πŸ‘‹,

I’ve been at it for coming close to 18 months and sometimes feel so stupid, but the key is to focus on the Signal, like you say there is just so much noise it’s crazy. I would advise you to master the basics, and choose a path - and try and stick to it. I have a few good resources based on what you want if that helps?

I'd love to see a list of good starting points. I was trying to compile a list of useful articles for someone that is thinking of going to school for programming and found it difficult to judge what was actually good for beginners :P

Sure thing, I have a list compiled in various locations, will put it on git hub and share the URL πŸ˜ƒ

At first glance it seems to be pretty cohesive! When I have some more time I'll try to look through and add some items!
