The journey to becoming a software developer can be hard when you are not exposed to the right learning resources. The truth is, there are so many resources online, however, most of these resources are not beginner-friendly or properly structured to guide learners. Someone asked me recently where he could find free learning resources online to start learning and honing his software development skills. His request inspired me to write this article to help as many that would be in need of this. I would be highlighting a few platforms that have helped many beginners over the years navigate the learning hurdles to becoming professional developers.
This is another great platform that has helped a lot of people jumpstart their careers in software development. You can see this fact from the testimonies on their website. The amazing thing about FreeCodeCamp is that you get a certificate when you finish a course. You learn at your pace and you get real-world experience when done.
YouTube is a great place to learn anything you desire to learn. There are awesome, experienced and well-grounded tutors dishing out tutorials week in week out on YouTube that you can learn from. A few of them are;
Travsey Media - Full stack Web Development
Kevin Powell - Frontend Development
FreeCodeCamp - Software Development, Machine Learning, AI, Gaming and more.
I hope this article helps someone looking for this information. Even as experienced devs these platforms are also helpful for learning new skills and refreshing the mind with basic concepts.
Please feel free to add more platforms in the comment section. Peace ✌️.
