What would be a good way to learn coding/programming?
I am an adult with children and a full-time job so college courses are out of the question. I grew up with the basic language being taught in highschool along with Cobal and Fortran. I always enjoyed it but I lost touch of these things. Where is a good place to start over?
I recommend Lynda.com. They are all certified instructors and we actually used the lessons as supplements for my master's program in IT and internet engineering. It's a very low monthly fee, and I think you can try it out for a short time for free. The videos are great because you can see what they are doing on their screen, and some videos are just as if an instructor was in front of you in a classroom.
They are set up in a structured learning format, but you can do the videos and lessons at your own pace.
I would suggest taking up coding challenges. A particular coding challenge that I just signed up, The Habet Coding Challenge, will be starting soon. It lets us choose a 7-day or 30-day challenge and we set our own goals. For example, my goal is to revisit the exercises I did with Codecademy last year for 7 days.
You might want to take a look at the challenge list at http://habet.co/ to see if any inspires you to set up an independent learning goal. Another way to do this is to take up courses with online certified classes, like Code School or Coursera.
Here is a link to a referral on Skillshare that allows you to choose from a list of membership classes on the technology section: http://skl.sh/1mU9Dyx
