Hey fellow newbies,
Been a while since I've posted, just got back into learning code after a few months of distraction.
I stumbled on a pretty solid coding course on Udemy called "Become a Certified Web Developer" by LearnToProgram. I just started it, but so far it seems really good. The instructor is very thorough, but also explains things in a way that is easily understood by anyone without a formal education in computer science. Also, with respect to the "certified" part, as I understand it the instructor has accredited the program (not sure of the accrediting body he went through, though), and for an additional fee you can take an exam and receive the certification credential associated with the site.
I purchased the course through this article I read on Learntocodewith.me. If you use that link you can get the course for $15 - down from $199! I figured even if I don't learn that much, the investment risk is very low.
Hope you find it helpful. Happy coding!
