Finding ONE (Well, TWO) Tutorial Sites and Sticking to Them

Reading time: 1 min

Codecademy logo

There are so many great sites. I am on The Odin Project, Codecademy, and Lynda.com. To be fair, my library offers free Lynda subscriptions for all cardholders and soon, being a Pitt student means I get Lynda.com as a benefit which rocks because I love their tutorials.

But I find myself overwhelmed with options. I bounce between all three and haven’t finished a single course. I am frustrated right now because learning is taking a long time. The courses take time. And I am used to things moving fast, learning fast, and being good after a short amount of time. That’s how I wrote fiction. But this is different. I have to know that and not get frustrated in the process.

So I’ve decided to pick two sites for now, which will be Codecademy and The Odin Project because these two sites work in concert with one another. Which is what I should be doing now instead of writing this blog post. It is, after all, spring break. I need to get some coding in before class starts back up Monday. ONE MORE MONTH AND I CAN BUILD ALL SUMMER!

No Ads. No Sponsored Content. Ever.

I've decided that I no longer want to have sponsored posts on this blog. I also, though as tempting as it may sound, don't want ads; even if I got big enough for Carbon ads I don't want them. I want to post free, engaging content for beginning/junior devs. This means that I won't have Setapp posts or affiliates on this blog, though I will keep them on the Uses page.
