And in this video I’m going to take you guys beyond learning how to code… What am I talking about? What am I talking about??? Hey guys! Sylvester Morgan here with Sylvester Morgan.com and in this video I want to give you guys an idea of what kind of videos you can expect to see on this channel. In my experience there are some more important foundational skills and things you need to know before you can pursue something like becoming a software developer. So there are six main categories or type of videos that I plan to create and I’ll share with you guys why I think each of these is really important, maybe even more important, more needed than the actual programming tutorials and how to code. OK, so if you’re thinking, “Look, I don’t want any of your life advice or your career advice. Can you just show me how to code?” I’ll give you guys some resources if you’re interested in getting started today, but I’ll warn you, if you get stuck, if things get hard and you feel like quitting, then please come back and watch these other videos. Here are some resources: One, this is a free one, you can go to w3schools.com. This is an awesome resource that I use throughout my learning. Another one I highly recommend is PluralSight.com. This is thirty dollars a month but it’s worth it. There’s also FreeCodeCamp.com, Udacity.com, Codecademy.com. You can do a search on YouTube or Google: how to code, learn how to code. There’s going to be a ton of really good resources for you to use. You can go to your local bookstore or library and find a ton of textbooks. I’m going to be having a lot of videos to kind of help guide you, but for now if you’re trying to get started today, I would encourage you- don’t get caught up in what language to start with or what resources to use. A lot of the fundamentals are the same and they can transfer from language to language and different technologies. I think you’re going to surprise yourself to find that you’re able to follow along the tutorials. Just don’t get discouraged and if you do get discouraged then make sure you come back and watch these other categories. So for the first category of videos, we have motivational and inspirational videos. Learning how to code and becoming a software developer is not going to be easy but if you have the motivation and you’re inspired then it is something that you can accomplish. So I want to get you guys all pumped up and inspired but that’s not enough. It doesn’t matter if you’re really inspired and pumped up when you start to learn. When you start working through some of this stuff is going to get hard and you’re going to get stuck, but at that point, you need to character that it takes to keep pushing through it. So the second type of video is going to be related to character and life skills. You need to kind of habits and the mindset to be able to push through something that’s hard, to be able to learn something that’s difficult. It’s not easy but it’s possible and it’s something that you can do if you have that foundation, that mindset, those habits in place in your life. Having the right character is also going to allow you to be successful after you get the job. So now you’re motivated and inspired and you also have been working on and developing the character that it takes. So the next category of videos will be: learn how to code. Obviously this is the reason you’re here and in these videos I’m going to give you guys the advice and the guidance based on my experience what programming languages to start with, how long it’s going to take, what resources I recommend. Next we have programming and software development tutorial. These are the tutorials where I actually sit down and walk you through, show you guys how to set up the software on your machine and how to start coding, how to learn the basics and how to build apps. So I’ve been debating whether or not I would do tutorials because there are already a ton of tutorials out there. But after thinking through it, I think that it’s a lot easier to connect with the person and someone who you can trust and someone who explain things in a way that works for you to make even more options available for you. So I do plan on producing some tutorials for you, but don’t worry. You can get started now. There are already a ton of tutorials out there for you and I can point you in the right direction. OK, so after you get the basics down and you learn how to code, you learn how to get things done, and you’ve developed some real marketable skills, now it’s time to look for a job. So this category of videos will be career advice: how to get a job, how to market yourself, salary negotiations, interview skills: these are all things that I spent a lot of time working on, a lot of time researching. So I’ll give you the advice based on the thing that I’ve learned and my experiences. And lastly, financial management and advice. So there’s a lot of opportunity to earn a lot of money. This career pays well but if you’re making a lot of money and you don’t know how to manage it, then that’s no good. My wife and I are interested now in different ways to invest and build residual income so as we’re working through those things and learning things and growing, I want to share that stuff with you. I wanted to share with you guys what type of videos you can expect to see because they might not necessarily be released in that order but there’s a feature on YouTube where you can organize videos in a playlist. So I’ll try to put those in a playlist as they come out, put them in the right category so if you’re interested in a particular topic at the time, you can find those there. Hopefully that’s helpful for you guys. So again, thank you for watching. If you liked the video, please click the thumbs up and subscribe to the channel.
