    From a Beginner to Coding Expert

    My Ambition is to be a Software Engineer. Which can be including Computer Softwares or Mobile Appications engineering. But after my high school, I have to contribute my self into other field (not IT related).

    Now, I am pretty done with my Primary career and soon. So next, i am thinking to achieve my ambition. I want to learn everything regarding computers, softwares, coding and so on. I need your help guys. My plan is to learn by my self first (through online). I dont want to spend my Money on courses first. I want to try my best to learn by my self.

    My question is, Is it possible? Can I learn everything through online? If Yes, from where should I begin from?

    Thank You.

    You can. Ofcourse you can. The internet is a thriving hub of knowledge. You just need to catalogue it in a sensible manner and see where it goes from there. Get your hands on the syllabus of a nice institution which teaches a course that you want to study, and get on it.. you might need to buy a few books tho...

    Ofcourse its possible. Almost everything newton knew was self taught. Almost. I learned the guitar entirely from free online courses and youtube.

    You are just in time to benefit from what is happening here:

    http://developer.ubuntu.com/

    http://developer.ubuntu.com/2013/12/...ll-for-papers/

    This is a week chock-full of tutorial sessions showing you how to use different aspects of the Ubuntu SDK across QML, HTML5, Scopes and other projects for building powerful, elegant, converged apps and content that runs across phone, tablet, and desktop.
    The entire week will be streamed live using Google+ Hangouts in which session leaders will provide their tutorials using a combination of video and screen-sharing with embedded discussion so viewers can share tips and tricks and help each other out. This will provide a rich menu of deeply interactive content that will be archived and available for future generations of developers to benefit from. We will integrate much of this content into developer.ubuntu.com as part of our documentation and services to help our growing developer community.
    It is a machine. It is more stupid than we are. It will not stop us from doing stupid things.

    "From 20-25th January 2014 we will be running our next Ubuntu App Developer Week." So yeah the only thing that was last year was the post about it, you have time before the actual thing happens. And they say they'll record and archive the sessions so even if you can't see it live you can still benefit

    Yes offcourse, all you have to do is always be inspired and start thinking a self project so that you will develop your skills.

    Re: From a Beginner to Coding Expert

    So what are people's thoughts on a first programming language?

    Python is often touted as a powerful and relatively intuitive language. (I've dabbled and like it very much.) There are free IDEs for Linux; I like Stani's python editor.
    C++ seems very popular among developers, and may be the most marketable skill. Or am I wrong?
    If one uses MS Office products, visual basic for applications is a very useful skill to have. And it's led a lot of people like me to think they can code when they really can't...
    Java is also very popular, and is used for Android and iOS apps. I haven't dabbled with Java in years.

    What are some other suggestions?
