On line courses for Coding

Posted on Saturday, May 14th, 2011 at 8:54 am

There is a wealth of online courses for the tech-minded person interested in learning to code. Most of them are either free or inexpensive.  

If the desire is to learn C++, Ruby on Rails, Python or Java, these online options are a way to experiment before you go the full way to complete full training and get a certificate. The veteran programmer can get resources to learn new languages.

The lack of face-to-face interaction with an instructor is a disadvantage. But there are a few online forums such as Google Stack Overflow and others to solve this.

A few are:
