Is there any legitimately free online coding courses?

Posted 04 July 2019 - 06:58 PM

I am looking for something online that would teach me how to program well in languages like Java, Javascript, C++ or really anything. I'll start where ever. I have some basic training in Java and C++ but it isn't very advanced. I do have a good grasp on mathematics and it doesn't have to be extremely laymen but I would prefer something for beginners. Thank guys!

Hey!

Have you tried Udemy? Moreover, as far as I know, there is an opportunity to ask for financial aid at Coursera

Most if not all courses on Coursera are free, or at least I've never found one that wasn't. You just have to pay to get "credit" for them - the credit being, as far as I can tell, completely useless, since nobody will ever care whether you have it or not.

There's also a lot of good material on mit's open courseware - they provide the lectures, usually the textbooks (unless they're proprietary material), quizzes, etc. I recommend taking those with a buddy, since there's a certain amount of context that you'll have to fill in and talking over the material with someone as you go through it will help you get the most out of it.

I tried coursera but all the courses I try say that I will get a 7 day free trial and then afterwards will be expected to pay $49 a month.

There are all kinds of college courses on Youtube. They might dip into speaking a different language every now and then, but they usually go back to English shortly, like next sentence.

It may depend on the institution offering the courses.

Haha yeah this is what I have been using lately. It is pretty good, it just is so scattered and stuff. But it has gotten me a lot further than anything else.
