How to Program - Free Lessons
#1
Hi all- I have no interest whatsoever in programming, but my brother (who is a COSC grad he he) sent me this link for my kids to learn programming at no charge. Learn to code | Codecademy I personally haven't looked at it, but I trust my bro.. after all, he's the one that taught me about CLEP and InstantCert, so I would imagine that there is some valuable info in here.

A member on another forum pointed me to Code Academy a couple of years ago when I expressed an interest in networking, but I have no interest in programming. I've also heard good things about W3Schools.

Another decent one is Learn Python - Free Interactive Python Tutorial
Also:
Code School - TryRuby

But here is a list of interactive learning on this blog post
Interactive Programming Tutorials (.NET, Java, Ruby, Python, JavaScript, SQL, NOSQL) ~ Aleksandr Yampolskiy's blog

I have yet to evaluate it, but I also read about Learn Programming, Free Programming Classes Online, How to write programs, C Programming for beginners a live stream class, not so much interactive like the above mentions.

I think perl and python have been instrumental in my career for quick problem solving and automation.
And for those wanting to get into statistics, R project and python may be an easy low cost entry vs expensive programs like SAS, SPSS, or Mathematica.

And found this for those wanting perl lessons.

My 2c. Learn Java or DotNet as they are mainstream programming languages used to create enterprise applications.
Python and Perl are mainly used for scripting of one-off utilities or small and simple web pages.
If a person spends about 1000 hours programming in Java and reading books etc, he can probably pick up a $50k job no problem. Java developers can make up to 100K with about 7 years of experience in most mid-size cities.

You would be surprised how little Java a kid with a 4 year CS degree has. I know because I have interviewed them.
