8 Resources To Learn Web Development

The tech industry has exploded with possibilities since the hit of the pandemic, which seems to be here for the foreseeable future. In adjusting to this new normal, opportunities to learn new skills have rushed to the surface. Maybe they were always there, but a lot has changed and for many people it's now about survival and changing careers to create a better life.

If that's you, here are a few resources (in no particular order) to help you learn to code:

But wait! Before you go diving head first into every resource to learn "all the things", check out my article Examine How You Learn so you don't get lost in numerous resources with no progress. Shiny Object Syndrome is real and it's easy to get caught up in what everyone says you should learn. This quickly leads to information overwhelm and frustration if you don't grasp technical concepts as fast as you see the developers you admire do.

Now don't let the hype on the interwebs fool you, learning to code is not easy. It will take a lot of time and you will get frustrated. There will be times you'll lose motivation and feel like giving up because it's not clicking the way people who are already successful developers talk about. Trust me.

Finding a supportive community that meets you where you are in your journey, helps you through your struggles and encourages you to keep going is also essential. Trust me.

I hope you found this helpful ๐Ÿ™‚.

Until next time ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿพ
