You can purchase The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders for $111.66. Will reading it qualify you to practice psychiatry?
It takes more than a book.
No one would think they could become a psychiatrist, airline pilot, or pro golfer by reading a book. Yet plenty of people hope They are able to become a programmer that way. They are able to’t, and for the same reason you’ll’t expect to fly a 737 after reading a flight manual.
Like any set of skills, learning to program requires not just reading, but practice—supervised practice, with someone guiding you and correcting your mistakes. That’s why coding bootcamps can be so effective.
No bootcamp? No problem.
If you don’t happen to have $8,000 or more for a bootcamp, I will offer you a pretty good alternative: supervised practice, made conceivable by technology, that’s not just affordable, but free.
Read. Practice. Practice some more.
After each short chapter of the book, I send you to my website where, at no charge, you complete twenty interactive exercises that beef up what’s covered in the chapter. These exercises are supervised by—what else in the age of Alexa?—algorithms. I’ve built a code-checking engine that is constantly looking over your shoulder, telling you when your code isn’t quite right and asking you to re-code.
“I’ve signed up to a few sites like Udemy, Codecademy, FreeCodeCamp, Lynda, YouTube videos, even searched on Coursera but nothing gave the impression to work for me. This book takes only 10 minutes each chapter and after that, you’ll exercise what you’ve just learned right away!” —Amazon reviewer Constanza Morales
Better than just reading. And more fun.
You’ll spend two to three times as much time practicing as reading. That’s what it takes to learn to code. It’s how you wind up satisfied, confident, and proud, instead of perplexed, discouraged, and defeated. And since many people find doing things more enjoyable than reading things, it can be a pleasure to learn this way, quite apart from the impressive results you achieve.
“Very effective and fun.” —Amazon reviewer A. Bergamini
Written especially for beginners.
“The layman syntax he uses…makes it much easier to suddenly realize a concept that seemed abstract and too hard to wrap your head around is suddenly not complicated at all.” — Amazon reviewer IMHO
“Mark Myers’ method of getting what can be…difficult information into a format that makes it exponentially easier to consume, really understand, and synthesize into real-world application is beyond anything I’ve encountered before.” —Amazon reviewer Jason A. Ruby
