Yep! The only "programming" I have known is HTML wayyyy back in the day. Other than that, I have little to no programming experience.

Go take a semester of Intro to C+ at your local CC (C+ because every school has this class) to better understand the fundamentals around programming in general. Learning structures, function calls, annotating code for future reference, etc. will help you feel a little less lost when diving into a particular language.

Noooooooo. Their stuff is notoriously outdated and/or just plain wrong. MDN is the authority on all things documentation and self teaching and such.

Perhaps OP is smarter then I, but I took C++ and I was confused from beginning to end. Actually I think they tried to over complicate things. We used visual studio as compiler, when DEV C+ was quick and simple. TBH they shouldn't use C++ for beginners

Good to know. It's what I was referred to in class

I think it's Harvard that offers their intro CS50 course for free online. I've never done it but I've heard good things about it and it might be another option to consider.

Yes sir. MDN is part of Mozilla and non profit. W3schools is a for profit site that tries to get folks to purchase certification and such.

Are you using any textbooks?

This is what I used:New Perspectives on HTML, CSS, and Dynamic HTML, 5th Edition. If you search the webs you'll get a free pdf copy

Nope, just going through whatever fCC's curriculum is. I've done 3 out of the 5 projects they want completed before earning a "Responsive Web Design" cert.

I'll definitely search for those copies though, thanks

Some might object but I recommend using wordpress. it's free and you can experiment on it.

This is a really great thread. Thanks for all of the contributions everyone. I definitely have a long way to go in regards to programming, but want to stay ahead of the curve since everyone is talking about automating everything. I know the cli won't completely go away, but definitely want to stay relevant on top of my networking knowledge.

Heavily biased for sure, but Ansible is awesome with regard to network automation (and is written in Python/YML, so relevant to what you plan on studying anyway)

Pretty much every company uses Red Hat in some capacity; whether as a server/desktop (RHEL), middleware platform (JBOSS EAP/AMQ), container platform (OpenShift), cloud platform (OpenStack), hybrid cloud management (CloudForms), provisioning/version control/patch control (Satellite), virtualization platform(RHEV). $3 billion in annual sales. IBM are in the process of buying us for $34 billion. Offices in ~50 countries. 12k ish employees worldwide. Can go into more detail if you'd like Apologies for the thread deviation OP.

Yes! I'd recommend one of the downstreams (CentOS 7 or Scientific Linux 7) to tinker with on VirtualBox. Both are just recompiles of RHEL.

Anybody ever tried Unity or Unreal Engine? I've been messing around with Unity for the past few months since it's all C# and I've already been using that language at work for a long time.

I'm kind of more interested in playing around with character AI than trying to make a full playable game though.

I tried downloading the iso file and it failed. Actually I think it's because I have generic downloading speed, since it takes 3 hours + to download GBs of data.
