E-books, online tutorials and programming courses are resources that help users to learn how to write computer programs. Learning how to code requires practice, and users must experiment and gain firsthand coding experience.
Several programming resources are available online for free. A GitHub listing offers over 500 e-books for different programming languages. CodeAcademy and LearnPython offer interactive tutorials to help introduce users to the essentials of programming. Students who have more time to learn how to code may take online courses at Coursera, edX or Udacity. Students may also ask a friend or mentor for assistance to supplement their self-taught learning.
