Learn Programming With A Free Code Camp

Learn Programming With A Free Code Camp

FreeCodeCamps

The great thing about coding is that it is done entirely on a computer or even in a web browser app. That means it is possible to learn an entire profession like programming entirely online. Going to a coding camp is cheaper to a university, and some employers prefer graduates of specific camps. To make the deal even sweeter, you can access an entirely free code camp. You will learn the basics, and some employers might take an interest.

Code Camp Advantages

In order to become a programmer, a potentially great-paying position, you first have to prove that you can code. You can build a portfolio yourself, which is the old fashioned route, or you can let a code camp build it for you with projects that facsimile real world work. All you have to do is prove you can do some programming work, and that is enough to open the door to freelance projects.

Another advantage is that it is much quicker than going to college. A university has a vested interest in keeping you there for for or more likely five years. A coding camp sticks to the subject and gives you a certificate that is perfectly acceptable to employers who just want work done. A university is more like a general prep school. A coding camp is for people who want to program.

An intensive program is for people who want to get the most out of their time. If you devote yourself to a subject and learn it intensively, then you might actually learn more than dragging out through multiple classes that do not offer direct continuity between subject matter. Why learn the basics of different programming languages when you can learn one or two that are in high demand and kick redundant lessons out the door.

There is no reason to have to do pointless work. A camp director has identified the most pertinent skills and information and has condensed it down into one program. You learn the skills that let you work in a particular field rather than trying to be a generalist and learn something specialized as an intern.

Github Core For Free

GitHub_Logo

Github, a techie's favorite software for hosting, has unveiled that its core features will now be free to all users. The platform, which hosts over 40 million users, will allow free account holders to enjoy the benefits of its core features. The company has done away with its Pro tier and divided the features between the free and team accounts.

What did the previous Github free account include?

In the past, users of the free plan could enjoy unlimited repositories, three collaborators in a private repository, and 2000 Github Action minutes per month. Furthermore, users would receive 500 megabytes of storage and automated security updates.

Which features are the same?

As was the case previously, the Github core for free account will give you access to unlimited repositories. The free account will continue to give you access to 2000 minutes of Github Actions. Github Actions, allow users to automate their workflow. From the Github platform, one can conceptualize, develop and deploy code. Users will also still receive 500 MB of storage.

Which features are different?

The two features which are an upgrade from the previous free account are unlimited collaborators and community support. In the past free accounts only enabled users to add three collaborators within a private repository. This allows for more efficiency on projects, especially where you have more than three collaborators.

What doesn't the Github core account include?

Whilst the core account offers users a variety of exciting features there are still some things which you will need to upgrade to use. Two such features are code owners and enterprise features. There is still good news if you need to have these features, as the monthly cost per user for code owners has been reduced by $5 to a measly $4. The Enterprise plan will run you $21 a user per month. Unlike the previous free account in days gone by, you will no longer receive any automated security updates.

Understanding Visual Studio Live Share

VisualStudioLiveShare

Visual Studio Live Share allows you to debug and code simultaneously with other developers on the same project.

During the Microsoft Build developer event, the company said that Live Share, the previously introduced feature of the Visual Studio code and Visual Studio, is now accessible by developers who wish to try it out. Up to now, this function, which enables developers to collaborate with each other, could be accessed only in preview mode --- and it is freely available to any developer, even developers who are using the Visual Studio free code editor.

Some people have likened Live Share to collaborating with Google Documents. Developers are able to see the position of everyone's cursor, and each word their colleagues type, irrespective which platform is used. Each developer participating in Live Share sessions can remain within their desired environment. This means that developers can be more flexible than they can be in conventional screen shares.
