How you can learn to program: web development resources As promised many moons ago, I’ll sum up what courses, books, and websites have been most helpful to me, as well as some that I’ve heard great things about within the web development community. A quick note on costs: I learned how to program on a budget, so I can certainly empathize with people who don’t want to break the bank without proof that they can get a job doing this stuff when they’re done studying.
