Do yourself a favor. Learn to code. Here’s how.

boomeyer:

I’ve said this to my non-techie friends countless times. It’s no secret that being able to code makes you a better job applicant, and a better entrepreneur. Hell, one techie taught a homeless man to code and now that man is making his first mobile application.

Learning to code elevates your professional life, and makes you more knowledgeable about the massive changes taking place in the technology sector that are poised to have an immense influence on human life.

(note: yes I realize that 3/5 of those links were Google projects)

But most folks are intimidated by coding. And it does seem intimidating at first. But peel away the obscurity and the difficulty, and you start to learn that coding, at least at its basic level, is a very manageable, learnable skill.

There are a lot of resources out there to teach you. I’ve found a couple to be particularly successful. Here’s my list of resources for learning to code, sorted by difficulty:

Novice

Never written a line of code before? No worries. Just visit one of these fine resources and follow their high-level tutorials. You won’t get into the nitty-gritty, but don’t worry about it for now:

Dash - by General Assembly

CodeAcademy

w3 Tutorials (start at HTML on the left sidebar and work your way down)


Intermediate

Now that you’ve gone through a handful of basic tutorials, it’s time to learn the fundamentals of actual, real-life coding problems. I’ve found these resources to be solid:

Khan Academy

CodeAcademy - Ruby, Python, PHP

Difficult

If you’re here, you’re capable of building things. You know the primitives. You know the logic control statements. You’re ready to start making real stuff take shape. Here are some different types of resources to turn you from someone who knows how to code, into a full-fledged programmer.

Programming problems

Sometimes, the challenges in programming aren’t how to make a language do a task, but just how to do the task in general. Like how to find an item in a very large, sorted list, without checking each element. Here are some resources for those types of problems

Talentbuddy

TopCoder

Web Applications

If you learned Python, Django is an amazing platform for creating quick-and-easy web applications. I’d highly suggest the tutorial - it’s one of the best I’ve ever used, and you have a web app up and running in less than an hour.

Django Tutorial

I’ve never used Rails, but it’s a very popular and powerful framework for creating web applications using Ruby. I’d suggest going through their guide to start getting down-and-dirty with Rails development.

Rails Guide

If you know PHP, there’s an ocean of good stuff out there for you to learn how to make a full-fledged web application. Frameworks do a lot of work for you, and provide quick and easy guides to get up and running. I’d suggest the following:

Cake PHP Book

Symfony 2 - Get Started

Yii PHP - The Comprehensive Guide

Conclusion


If there’s one point I wanted to get across, it’s that it is easier than ever to learn to code. There are resources on every corner of the internet for potential programmers, and the benefits of learning even just the basics are monumental.

If you know of any additional, great resources that aren’t listed here, please feel free to tweet them to me @boomeyer.

Best of luck!

So if we wanted to watch some French animation, what films would you suggest?

ursulatheseabitchh:

the Triplets of Belleville is about an elderly woman searching for her son who was kidnapped in the middle of a Tour de France race. It’s largely free of dialogue, but the sound effects and such are wonderful. It was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature—it lost to Finding Nemo.

A Cat in Paris is about a young girl and her cat who discover mysteries in the course of one night. It was also nominated for an Oscar for Best Animated Feature, but it lost to Rango.

Persepolis is based on an autobiographical graphic novel by Marjane Satrapi about her early life in Iran. It was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature, but it lost to Ratatouille.

the Illusionist is about an aging magician and an imaginative young girl who form a father/daughter relationship. It was also nominated for a Best Animation Oscar, but lost to Toy Story 3.

The Rabbi’s Cat is a story about a cat who swallows a parrot and gains the ability to speak like a human. It is set in 1920’s Algeria.

Ernest & Celestine is the adorable story about a big bear and a little mouse who forge an unlikely friendship. It was also nominated for an Oscar in Best Animated Picture, but lost to Frozen.

Kirikou and the Sorceress is a story inspired by West African folklore that tells the story of Kirikou, a boy who was born with the ability to walk and talk, who saves his people from an evil witch. The film was popular enough to spawn sequels and a stage adaptation.

A Monster in Paris is a 3D animated musical film that is reaaaaalllly loosely based on the Phantom of the Opera. It’s set in 1910 and is about, surprisingly, a monster that lives in Paris, and his love for a young singer.

The King and the Mockingbird is an 80’s film about a cruel king titled Charles V + III = VIII + VIII = XVI, who is obsessed with a young shepherdess, and whose attempts to capture the young girl are thwarted by a mockingbird whose wife the King had previously killed.  

Those are probably the most famous of the feature length animated films.

But the animated short films are just as glorious. Here’s a compilation of a bunch of short films and I can link you to others as well. 

Sorry for the long answer but I just really love French animation.

When developing your characters, establishing how they view the world is just as important as their motivations, wants, and needs. This will help you set the tone or your novel and will also let your readers know how your character has been shaped as a result of how they…

I would like to tell you guys about this website, if you have not heard of it already.  Zenni Optical does prescription glasses for $7USD (some frames are more expensive, but they have a LOT of cheap, and really cute choices).  That includes the frames, prescription lenses, a case, and a cleaning cloth.  All for seven dollars.  All you need is your prescription.  For a few dollars extra, you can get prescription sunglasses.  This is a great resource for people on cheap health insurance, or if you just tend to break your glasses a lot and need a few extra pairs.

I just got mine yesterday, and they’re very sturdy.  Better than the last pair I got through insurance, actually.  And when I inevitably break these ones, Zenni has my prescription saved so I can quickly order a new pair.  I picked the cheap shipping option (four bucks), and they took about a week and a half to get here, but there’s a faster option for about $14 or so. 

Glasses are one of those things a lot of cheap health insurance won’t cover, which makes this an invaluable resource for anyone on a budget.  They even ship internationally.

I can vouch that this website is legit and awesome. My current pair of glasses only cost me $60, you get tons of options in terms of the types of lenses+accessories and add ons for basically a fraction of the price that they’d cost at any optical store. I can’t recommend this place enough for anyone that needs an updated pair of glasses

I have two pairs from there, both of which cost me less than $30. I would definitely get glasses from them again.

I have a pair from there which cost me about $60, I went for more expensive frames and transition lenses. Still cheaper than the $230 my other pair cost me, so I cannot complain! They’re really good imo.

Are you telling me that there’s an actual option for prescription sunglasses that isn’t Give Us All Your Money or poorly-fitted clip-ons????

I have a pair from there.  They’re amazing.

got mine here too, they’re awesome as hell

I found more the other night

CAUSE I SERIOUSLY NEEDED SOMETHING LIKE THIS WHEN I WAS YOUNGER. I HOPE THIS HELPS YOU GUYS.

Don’t forget that drinking plenty of water and tea, eating a healthy diet and daily exercise will make a HUGE difference with your complexion.  Touching your face frequently is also a big no-no.  Everyone’s skin is different, so experiment with your own treatment routines and find what best suits you!!  I think this is a topic that’s almost taboo to talk about, but everyone has it, so we might as well help each other out with what we’ve found successful, right!?

OK so I never thought my weird knowledge of skincare would come in handy, but here we go. All of this above is really good advice but the actual products you use to wash your face, can actually increase your risk of acne! And what’s worse is that these are typically the products marketed towards people with acne problems!! FOR SHAME! Anyway, steer clear of foaming cleansers. I know they are fun and available everywhere, but they are bad news for your face. Your skin has a slightly acidic layer on top of it with a pH usually around 4 and any product that is foaming is going to be basic (pH greater than 7) and it will strip the acid from your face creating a breeding ground for bacteria. 

If you use exfoliators, make sure to avoid ones with the little beads in them. These beads, instead of exfoliating, grab the bacteria and drag it around your face dropping it where ever it pleases and essentially increasing your acne area. Go for exfoliators that are more like a chemical peel (but super super mild) there are a lot out there and it’s like a face mask and they tingle a little and may cause redness, but you use them 1-2 times a week and they are great.

Be gentle to your skin and take care of it. There are a lot of great products at the drugstores/ high street really stepping up their skincare game. CeraVe is a common product in America that has a moisturizer that comes in a BIG tub and costs about $15 that also fights acne (it’s really helping mine). Salicylic acid and Glycolic acid (which is an AHA - Alpha Hydroxy Acid) are commonly found in products to help fight acne as well as Benzoyl Peroxide (proactive). Find one that works best for you and use it. Try to avoid products with mineral water as this creates a film on your face and prevents the good ingredients from penetrating into your skin and helping it out. Another point, no matter what your skin type, MOISTURIZE. I do not care if you leave oil on your pillow every night, slap on some moisturizer. It takes about 20 seconds every night and morning and it helps so much. You can use a lighter one in the day if you wear makeup and don’t want to risk (extra) oiliness.

If you have any more questions, I’ll be happy to help and send you in the direction of videos and blogs that I’ve looked at that have helped me get a handle on this really annoying topic.
