Lately I’ve found more and more people in my life have come to me interested in getting started in the software development world but not sure where to start. On the plus side, there are more free coding tutorials online now than there ever were. There are also amazing coding schools like Lamda School, and subject-specific schools like Metis that focus on Data Science.
The challenge that I’m seeing people who want to get started in the software development world face is what path they want to take. Should you learn front-end or back-end, build iOS apps or become a data scientist? The reality is, some of these paths will be interesting to you, others will be incredibly boring, the key is finding what you like.
Since I spend a lot more of my time in the software world than the domain name world I thought it might be interesting to put together a series on coding, starting with the basic question of – do you want to be a front-end or back-end developer and then doing a deeper dive into each.
While I think there are already a zillion good tutorials out there, I do think I could put my own unique spin on it, and hopefully inject a little fun and humor into the process. My idea was to start with these three posts to kick off the series:
Coding with Morgan – Lesson 1: Font-end vs. backend development
Coding with Morgan – Lesson 3: Introduction to Python
At the same time, as I’ve learned in the past, it’s important to keep my blog focused so I’m not sure if these would deviate things too far from what you, my readers, have come to expect from my blog. Which is where you come in. Do you think it would be interesting if maybe a post a week on my blog was focused on coding? Do you like the idea for these first three lessons? I want to hear from you, comment and let your voice be heard!
