Hello guys, For a long time i wanted to learn how to code, i went by codecademy and several other websites.
for some reason i never figured out the hang of it, or shall i say grasped the subject.

If any of you would like to share different ideas about it, and if a change of mindset or a trick to that i would like to hear.

whether its python, java, c++, c#. I would like to know a better way to grasp the subject thoroughly.

Well, there is various website where you can learn how to code.
First I suggest you to learn the base of Algorithm, after focus on a language and follow course on website (OpenClassroom, CodeAcademy etc), you should start with C#, Python or Java.

yeah i know youtube is for the base of every language and stackoverflow is for solving problems.
but i mean a guide to how to manage with the essentials and what to do with it.

Personally I have learned to ropes by reading through some on websites. In my case quite a lot on W3Schools. Allthough that was mainly for PHP. That way you learn certain essentials, it's basically the online equivalent of buying a book. The plus-side of online is you can see it working right away. Which makes it more easier to understand.

Later on I started following YouTube video's and reproducing their codes. Eventually I started making random stuff from scratch. Think of basic calculators but eventually a CMS.

Like you realise yourself, StackOverflow is not for teaching, but for getting help with your problems. Allthough you can learn a lot of reading through other peoples problems.

i prefer to Java. Java has a great syntax for beginner. Object-oriented programming is much easier to learn and understand in java.
Search and watch in youtube: thenewboston java or buy a course on udemy.com. // udemy often has offers
