    For a well-rounded CS knowledge you might want to look into OSSU, which is designed to meet the requirements for univerisity CS courses.
  • Is codecademy worth it and where else can I learn
    2 projects | /r/learnprogramming | 10 Dec 2023
    OP I hate to double comment and be "that guy who learned to code without going to college who MUST he did it the correct way" cause fuck "that guy". He's annoying, and he never shuts up, and I try really hard not to be that guy.... But I wanna provide some extra reasons I feel you should stay away from Code Academy. And as I said before, not because they're bad courses, so let me be that guy just for a brief moment. In addition to random Youtubers straight up having high quality courses that are much more update date, they often have supplemental tutorials on niche things that aren't covered in a "101 course". But even then, maybe the idea of a certificate on your resume appeals to you... Well, turns out there's more "academic" courses online you can do to get more of those things that self-taught dumbasses like me aren't as strong with because we skipped the "academic" part of learning..... If that's what makes Code Academy appealing (which I don't think they even go over much.... but still)... then here's 2 things I'd look at before pulling out your wallet. Here's Harvards entire introduction to Computer Science courses provided for anyone to take for free (you can pay for a certificate, but its straight up $0.00 to take the classes) Heres a github repo for an Open Source University that a ton of devs have curated to give a simulated full degree program If you want to focus hardcore on being a Web Developer and are frustrated by there not being tutorials that show you exactly how to handle every step from "there's no website on my computer" to "holy shit I made a website", then here you go The Odin Project is an Open Source answer to your cries of frustration. It has curriculum paths that do exactly that. The goal is to go from zero programming knowledge to fully employable as a web developer (by skill level at least, obviously you'll need to build stuff and build a resume)

    If someone's completed CS50X and W any recommendation where to carry on I'm thinking from core maths onwards seems reasonable.

  • What path is the best way to get a software engineering role by the summer if my major isn't in software/cs?
    3 projects | /r/learnprogramming | 22 Oct 2023 Quite comprehensive but will take much longer then 8 months. Would only do it if anyone who did do it thinks they where ready for applying to jobs after studying 1/4 of the course.
