Hi guys, ive recently become very interested in programming and would love to turn this into a career. i just dont know how.

 

I've been doing some courses on codecademy and seem to be doing just fine.I have finished my HTML and CSS and am currently learning JS. I like the site for the most part, but it doesn't seem to go too far into detail of when to apply certain things. On the site im just fine but ive yet to find a good IDE that supports Vista which i currently use. I've heard that Sublime is a good one but i wouldnt know how to check and see if my codes will work properly once i code.

 

I live in Nashville and there is a promising school called Nashville Software School that i would really like to attend, however, they are impossible to contact as i have sent five emails and have yet to get a response.

 

This is a hobby of mine that i really enjoy, but i dont know how to make my dream of becoming a professional programmer to life. I will still practice and learn what i can form codecademy, but my main question is where do i go from there?

 

I've browsed this site and everyone seems to be very friendly and knowledgeable so i am sincerely hoping i can get some good advise from posters how have been in my position before.

Hi and welcome,

A great IDE you can use is Eclipse, it is totally free and very good. You have to install a little plugin named PDT. I'm using it for web development, but you can use it for almost any programming language.

You can understand the code, but you can't understand the world.

I ended up downloading sublime. It seems very deep, but there is so much to it that my head wants to explode. I don't even know how to layer my CSS ontop of my HTML code with this.

*sigh* I need a mentor.

Welcome aboard! :) 

 

One little correction I would like to make is that Sublime is not an IDE, but a Text Editor instead.
