Default Learning to code sites

Currently I'm using freecodecamp.com though there's a plethora of sites out there for free resources for self learning (which of course others may recommend).

As a visual learner I'm a big fan of The New Boston, Bucky speaks clearly, paces his videos well and focuses on explaining concepts rather than just showing you what to do without explaining why, all in a all an excellent resource.

Codecademy is the only one I'm on.

When I was learning Python I used codeacademy mainly along with some written materials. Then after I was a little more experienced I just scoured the web for stuff to do that wasn't overly complex and beyond my beginner skill.

Then when I was learning C++ I mainly used CodingMadeEasy(YouTube channel) and various forums C++ forums.

And with Java then only thing I've used is TheNewBoston.

I didn't use sites to start with. Mostly I used Wrox text books and reference manuals. For more specific questions I used stackoverflow.com

Stack overflow is my go-to for specific issues. Beyond that, it depends on what you want to learn. Codecademy and W3 schools are nice for those starting out completely green.

If you're learning javascript I think the first chapters of Eloquent JS and Codewars are a good progression (though the latter supports other languages as well).

Codecademy and similar hold your hand through everything, so its good to start with from fresh. But you can't really learn to code through them as it doesn't get you into the process of solving problems programatically on your own.

I went onto Codewars from the free html/css/javascript/jquery tracks on codecademy and found it overwhelming (I'm on the middle-grades there currently as I'm still learning the language but still find it v challenging). Codewars drops you into solving problems/puzzles of increasing difficulty without help (except google); and because you can compare your solutions with others once you've solved it you can study the best answers, different approaches, and quickly improve.

Some of the problems I've tried there have taken me 8 hours to come to a solution. But because I had to think hard about it, plan it out, go away and research, use stack overflow, experiment and fail, I learnt a lot in the time. Next best thing is probably just working on a small personal project, and researching everything you need to do to build it as you go.

The fastest way to learn is just to get into it. Download MAMP, Netbeans and start cranking.

If you're looking for stuff to work on I have a massive to do list for a website I'm developing .

EDIT: ... oh, you meant "websites to learn coding", not "learning to code websites".
