Why do most people who make an effort to learn to code fail? The answer is in the question; because they were trying to learn how to code.
This runs in a similar vein to Jon Duckett’s book above. It takes a very visual (hence the name) guide to learning the language. It is for absolute beginners and therefore isn’t terribly deep—and it's also quite short. Recommended for true newbies only.
Learning in Person at a Developer Bootcamp
There's a lot of value in learning from a book, especially if you're strapped for time or need to brush up on a specific topic.
That said, there are some distinct advantages to learning new skills in a room of fellow learners. If you tackle a new skill set in a classroom setting, you can learn in person from a professional who's been in the trenches of development, using those skills to build applications for clients or other audiences.
You can also learn a lot from your classmates, who are working on the same problems you are. And at DigitalCrafts, you'll find the career guidance you need, including resume workshops and job placement support.
