How did you learn to code? Did you take a course, go to school for it, or just teach yourself?
My boyfriend is starting a forum for his buddy who created some game on the computer and his friend wanted a forum. Because my boyfriend is a noob at forums and how to set them up he's asked for my assistance. I myself, don't know a lot of coding but I know a tad bit from fixing random things here and there.
So anyways, yesterday I worked all evening and night to make my boyfriend the forum that he wanted, with the colours he wanted, and the way he wanted everything to be done.
Anyways, this morning he wakes up and decides to change some things on the forum and to do some coding of his own. to say, he messed a lot of things up by deleting and changing things. :/ It's really frustrating because I spent so much time making the forum he wanted just so he can play around and delete a lot of my work/mess up the coding so the forum looks messed.
I want him to learn coding because I think if he is going to be messing around with the codes he should definitely learn what he's actually doing and what the coding means. Plus I don't want to have to spend my day fixing his errors either
So my question to you is: How did you learn to code? In your opinion what is the best way to learn how to code?
Thanks a bunch!
