🎓 HarvardX: CS50 Introduction to Computer Science (CS50x) (by skyfall01)


My personal curriculum covering basic CS topics. This might be useful for self-taught developers... A work in development! This might take a very long time to get finished! (by ahmaazouzi)

  • 27 y/o with no degree and a bad resume, what should I do next?
    This would be a good place to start if you wanna learn to program https://cs50.harvard.edu/x/2021/
  • Know basics of programming but can't code projects, can you suggest a course that takes me from beginner level to able to do projects?

  • Bootcamp hesitation
    My path has been Harvard CS50 -> freeCodeCamp -> appAcademy Open. If I could go back I would have skipped the parts of FCC that I did and went straight to aA open. I can’t speak to the curriculum that is offered in the boot camp (though I’ve seen it is not as good as what they used to offer and what is in the Open curriculum) but what is used for Open is very good and definitely very challenging. I also like that it teaches you how to set up a local dev environment as even though an employer would set that up for you I think it’s important to understand how you get the tools into your machine. Once I finish Open I’ll probably try and start applying to jobs as well as try and volunteer for a non profit called Ruby for Good. They’re a skill based volunteer opportunity that builds software for other non profits to get experience on my resume.
  • i just bought a PC and i want to learn programming but i know nothing and i have some questions
  • Struggling with my first code
    I recommend CS50x from Harvard, it's free and teaches you the basics of C, some Python, some other things. The teacher explains things incredibly well. You can find it on Youtube or https://cs50.harvard.edu/x/2021/
  • How do i learn programming efficiently?
    https://cs50.harvard.edu/x/2021/ then/or https://www.edx.org/course/cs50s-web-programming-with-python-and-javascript its free
  • where can i learn python for free?
    https://cs50.harvard.edu/x/2021/ Free course for C langiage with no prerequisite knowledge required
  • Uma resposta minha aqui num post estourou e quis fazer um post sobre trabalhar com programação remoto
  • Will CS50 prepare me for my sequel class at university?

  • Leetcode!!
    hey it's been a little short of 2 weeks and I've been loving every bit of it :) I'll be using a few resources to learn some of the topics I mentioned at a deeper level including CS50, CS61a, CS61b, and teachyourselfcs.com.
  • Any good resources to start on computer science? I’m starting classes in January, and I want to start coding, or learning something so I can start taking internships, any advice or resources?

  • I wish I did mathematics in highschool

  • Learning C
    You can also check out Teach Yourself Computer Science
  • Can anyone get a bachelor degree level understanding of computer science online without paying for it?
  • bombing my first technical interview made me realize that programming is different than coding
    I found teachyourselfcs.com, picked up SICP and slowly go through it page by page, and on my recent learning session I made the working function where it takes 3 number arguments and calculates the square roots and then outputs the highest two of them. It was amazing.
    The SICP books is well known gem of functional programming, check out https://teachyourselfcs.com, they have python oriented alternative to that book
  • Those of you who completed their CS degree, if you had to compare 3 years of college experience VS 3 years of work experience, what was more beneficial to your career and skill?
    Another option would be something like teach yourself CS. They provide links to textbooks and lectures that can be used to self teach the core CS courses so you can benefit from them without having to spend the money.
  • Da li promeniti fakultet?
    I čisto da dodatno razjasnim svoj stav. Ja ne kazem da učis biblioteke ili koju vec nebulozu neko već reče. Ja ti kazem da juriš inženjersko znanje van fakulteta. Da ja sada krećem krenuo bih od freecodecamp a imaš i teachyourselfcs oba su sjajna!
  • Does a bootcamp exist for CS fundamentals for experienced programmers?
    I'm on a similar journey and have found teachyourselfcs.com to be a good resource
