I’ve always been able to learn on my own, if only for the fact that I don’t allow any subject to intimidate me. I understand that all knowledge has some value and can be interesting if approached with the proper intent. That being said, there have been certain subjects that until the past few years I have not made a good enough attempt so that anything would sink in.
One of those subjects has been math. In college I did enough to fulfill the math General requirement. That being said, I’ve always appreciated math. It affords the wielder, the language of physics, and thus the very principles upon which the universe itself is built. It is foundation to hard and soft sciences alike. Thus, I will be noting here my path to turn myself into a math person.
It is worth noting that for the past two years I have been learning coding for web development, so I have developed a basic level of technical and procedural thinking.
One of my biggest passions is learning new things. In my teenage years I had a hobby of collecting new hobbies. As such I became aware of a number of resources free and available online. I’ve also become privy to some ways to gain access to resources that might otherwise cost money. This article will serve as a repository of all the free resources I am aware of and will grow as I discover more. I may also add summaries as well.
The Library Back Door
There are some websites that do have a membership fee. Sites like Lynda.com and Team Treehouse are such examples. I learned that libraries purchase group memberships to offer website services to the libraries members. Often having a library card is enough to be able to access these websites.
This isn’t my first attempt at blogging but hopefully this will be my most successful attempt. I’m starting this blog primarily to parse and sort my thoughts about learning to code, though you’ll probably find that I’ll post about the other things I’m trying to learn as well. For you, dear reader, I hope that some of these ramblings may incite insight into some of what follows. Let my struggles serve as your advantage.
