Learning to code

Hi everyone,

just wondering does anyone have a good site that teaches you code (doesnít really matter what language as I assume the Ďmainí ones will be on the free sites) for free from basics to advance? Coding is literally the future so as Iíve got a long left on this planet I best get my act together.

Has anyone who learnt code themselves got any advice?

Thanks!

I had learned the basics of programming a long time ago, but without using it, just the pleasure of learning something potentially useful.
Now it serves me, but I have only the basics.
Two tips I use that can serve you as advices:
1) I download source files and I study them whenever possible. I cut portions and do tests with them.
2) Start writing small simple programs, and try to maximize its code as you go (do the same thing in shorter).
I can only help on mql4, and Excel.
Excel is very powerful.

Great thanks for your help. Thatís exactly my mentality, Im not really planning on using it but it is the future so best to learn now.

Also When source files pop up on my computer I do tend to look at it but none of it makes sense obviously so Iíll start on the basics and then read them.

Thanks again

I see that you use Sierra Chart, if you want I can open a thread, to show as an example how to make a "vocal Pit", with Excel on Sierra Chart (I have to reinstall the platform).
With Excel sheets you do not need to structure, you put it where you want.

If you have the time that would be great! I suspect a lot of other people will benefit from that as well. Thanks OB

udemy.com has so many great courses for 10 bucks each. If you go there an the site says courses are $200 that is just some stupid marketing gimmick because everyone other week everything is on sale for $10.

I would preview a few python starter courses for the person you like their voice the best.

download anaconda python 3
https://www.anaconda.com/download/

Once installed, open a terminal and type jupyter notebook

Brew some coffee and start learning.

Starting with python in 2019 is just a no brainer.

My advice when learning to code is never give up. I only know a little bit of coding just to be useful. The main thing is to stick with it and actually attempt to create something useful each time you learn something new. There are so many amazing resources available these days that weren't around when I started. If you learn something like javascript you will find that most of what you learn is easily transferable to other languages even those used by various trading platforms.

Google Codecademy, and start with data processing languages, like Python.

Other than this, as someone else mentioned, Udemy has LOT of beginner level courses.

Learning Python is not that difficult, if you work hard in couple of months you will have it down. Problem happens when you start the application of the knowledge, so I suggest starting one practical project side by side and as you google for solutions, you will learn much faster than simply watching video lectures.

Happy coding, always remember that although a correct syntax matters to execute successfully, programming is lot more about the "logic" behind it than what we usually think before we start actual coding
