33 Ways to Learn That Are Way Bet­ter Than Tra­di­tion­al School­ing

Nowa­days, I am inclined to think, as Clark Aldrich writes, that “What a per­son learns in a class­room is how to be a per­son in a class­room.”

And, frankly, being a part of the bro­ken, immoral edu­ca­tion-indus­tri­al com­plex, the mono­lith­ic monop­oly for­ev­er, futile­ly try­ing to reform itself isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. The cur­rent school sys­tem is so f***ed up, it isn’t work­able.

Back to Learning Coding

Tag:Cyn @ 0:04

Hi! It’s been a while, I know. Katie is near­ly fin­ished with col­lege now, but I’ve been busi­ly learn­ing online again!

  • Code Acad­e­my still rules as far as the resources avail­able and the qual­i­ty of the lessons they offer.
  • FreeCode­Camp is either new­er or I’ve just dis­cov­ered them. In any case, they’re great!
  • Skill­crush has some good resources, but as far as I can tell only the 10 day boot­camp, which is very basic, is free. Still, it would be a good intro­duc­tion for a total begin­ner.
  • Dash is just about HTML, CSS and web design, but it’s quite nice.
