General Assembly: Learn programming Language

General Assembly is an online learning platform where most of the courses are paid. But they have an online course name dash which is totally free. But don’t think it’s a worthless course. If you have a little bit of knowledge of programming language then you must know the importance of dash programming language for any web developer.

This course layout is very informative. Each course is made by a slideshow and Q&A forum. They followed project style to make this course. The more lessons you finish, the more skill you can learn. This course has a  total of 5 projects and one side project. By learning those projects you can gain a total of 82  different kinds of skills.

Let’s know the pros and cons of this course:

4. StudyTonight:

If you have a habit of reading then the Studytonight website is a perfect online learning platform for you. No matter which kind of programming language you want to learn, you will get every kind of programming language on this website. On this online learning platform, every course has huge content (as I said people like to read then this website is for you).

Also studytonight online platform has a YouTube channel, where you can find a lot of tutorial about  learning programming language.  But if you like to Read more than watch then this website is perfect for you because Beside learning you will find so much research here on this website.

JavaTPoint is a similar Online learning platform like studytonight. They have one shop technology and programming language course among those drafting, AI, DevOps, soft skills, blockchain, data mining are my favorite.

They designed a fantastic course layout, But the Boring  thing is  this website has advertisements and most of them are animated advertisements. The good thing is they have browser based IDE  and even browser based compiler. So I hope this website will help you to find your course which you want to learn.

Let’s know the pros and cons of the JavaTPoint platform.

6. Mozilla

Mozilla is a Technology-based organization.  They have large projects among those Firefox Web browsers are the famous one. They want to help those people who want to learn a programming language,  and that’s why they made developer.mozilla.org. As this learning platform is developed by Mozilla, there should not be any doubt on their layout and level of the teaching method. You can start your programming language journey by learning HTML then you can be a front-end and Back-end web developer from this  Platform. I can say Mozilla has a total guideline for a beginner who wants to learn programming language free. 

Let’s know their good and bad side:

Browser-based IDEMost of them are text based contentCSS
Beginner to advanced levelPython/Django

7. W3schools

Learn programming Language: w3schools.com
Learn programming Language: w3schools.com

If you know what programming language is, then you must know about W3schools.com . I think there will be no one who doesn’t know about w3schools if they really are a programming lover. And that’s why they call W3schools, the king of online programming language learning platforms. Also, W3schools claimed themself as the biggest online web development site. Personally I believe that, Because every web developer must visit W3schools once in their life.

This website is not only limited to web development but also you can learn server-side technology, C+, Raspberry Pi programming language from this website. W3schools has a wonderful layout or interface for learning programming languages. Beginners or advanced level programmers can get help from this website. Personally I like W3schools.com, no matter how busy I am I used to visit this website at least once a day. And I found there are no bad or cons on this website.

8. Google

No! I am not telling you to search on google for finding your course. Here, I am talking about Google because, like Mozilla, they are also thinking about developers. That’s why they are making courses in web development and artificial intelligence.

Google echo system has a lot of courses from where you can learn any course you want and those are free of cost. All those courses are very professional. Not only the echo system they have a lot of other platforms to learn from like;

So what are you waiting for go and learn programming language for free?

From this website, you will get more than 5,000 resources and courses about computer science, programming and it related. In my personal opinion, freeCodeCamp is the best free online learning platform in 2020. They have everything you need for being a professional programmer. They are great for the following reasons;

You will get high-quality courses. They have Browser-based IDE to practice code. They are familiar with portfolio-based learning.

14. SkillShare

Skillshare is becoming popular day by day and I think the reason behind is they have both long and short duration online courses. And all these courses made by people like you and me. It is a platform where anyone can share any skill.  Most of the courses are free.
