Or would I be better suited with a coding camp…?

It all depends on what you want to do.

What I would recommend…

Just start somewhere… anywhere. Especially if you have never coded before. Check out THIS QUICK VIDEO or THIS BLOG POST to help you figure out what you want to do and how to get there.

Personally I started at Data Quest to learn some Python and data science. It seemed like a good spot to start. Much like Data Camp and Code Academy, there is a well established learning plan in place and some reasonably good student assistance measures. However, this was a good match for me because I love data and wanted to become a data scientist. But maybe you want to develop apps or video games. There’s a class for that.


About Me:

My name’s Soren. Six years ago I put away the drawing board and just started learning. I was so caught up for so long making my master plan that I never started. My impulsive, dive into leaning, methodology was the best way I could have done it. With a soft learning outline and objective. All I knew is I wanted in-demand skills that were industry transferable. Here at Skill-Invest, I’ve put together opinions on the best resources so that you can too.
