Learning to code
benjaminapp (3)

How did you all learn to programme?

I've become very comfortable with HTML & CSS and now would like to build some projects but unsure how to 'level up' my skills.

In terms of JS, HTML and CSS, would anyone recommend some books that provide invaluable knowledge?

that's awesome mate. I'm in the U.K - never studied computing, so everything I'm picking up is self-taught. I've been watching a Harvard free course on youtube, CS50 computer science, which is great at explaining a lot of the why's.
From what I'm gathering thus far, understanding maths is quite crucial, especially when delving into the more difficult concepts (please correct me if I'm wrong)

When looking at a project - how is best to begin? I'm looking at building a marketplace, similar to AirBnB for example. I understand all the basic underlying technologies, but when it comes to writing the first pieces of code, I don't know where to start? Is there a golden route for projects or a 'way of doing things'?

Thanks for taking the time out to reply to me - its a real help! :) @eankeen
