One of my favorites: Codecademy

A constantly expanding resource breaking down programming concepts in Javascript, Web Fundamentals, JQuery, Python, Etc. into easy to understand, simple lessons you work through using their built-in code editor that verifies your solution is correct before linking you to the next lesson in the path. (Note: You are not forced to work straight through every learning track. You are able to view the entire pathways in each segment and focus on specific sections.)

Plus, as a visual encouragement, you earn badges as you reach milestones and complete sections! ^^ They even recently added a feature allowing you to "Group Up" with others on the site for learning together.

Anyone new to the development world is missing out if not making full use of this resource.

Resources for learning can come from different context; it could be from a forum, tech magazines, or from a book. But one very important detail most of us forget is that we can gather learning resources from ourselves... Most of us tend to depend on the things that we currently remember that we assume there are the things we only knew. Most of the time we’re stock on the internet finding a method or a solution to a problem; forgetting to review our codes from our past projects that we can get similar function that only needs to be improvise so it would fit to be the solution of the problem.

A handful tip is always bring your curiosity with you; try to review or search about the current trends but always write a “NOTE” about it. For example you accidentally or occasionally visit a site which apparently has new features that you haven’t encountered yet it’s a good practice to take note of it and research how it was implemented cause you will never know time will come that feature will come handy for you future projects.
Some search Tips for migrating from one language to another:

Search for the following:

  • How to get user input
  • How to display user input
  • How connect to database
  • How to insert ,edit and delete data from database
  • How to display data from database

Data Structure Visualizations

It actually animates data structures to see how they work! Amazing!

@modi That is really cool ;)

They should have a code snippet pop-up as well, and animate through the code lines in step. That would be brill.

How do you face a programming task that you’ve never done before?
