Resources

Knowing what to do next can be tricky. These resources should help.

  • What language should I learn?

    Seems like a basic question, but most people struggle with it at the beginning. We made a choose your own adventure guide to simplify the process for you.

  • Then what? How do I start?

    You need some tools. At a minimum, you'll need a text editor to write code, and an execution environment to run code. For the former, try Atom. For the latter, go with Chrome or maybe Firefox. There are lots of ways to run code, but doing it in the browser is a good way to start.

  • Do I need to learn Algorithms/Data Structures/Computer Science

    There are many opinions about this, but our answer is yes... but the best kind of yes. We made a cheat sheet with gophers that will help you learn the basics over the course of a night or two. It's not everything, but there are plenty of working coders who don't all of what we cover here.
