If you are reading Coding for dummies book to learn software you are doing it alllll wrong lol ... Please while I appreciate your effort and willingness to try but no.. just no.. put the book down that book won’t teach you shit.

Same thing if you are one of those folks who got conned into believe “you can land a programming gig by signing up and paying for this 6 week course!!” Bullshit.. I like your initiative but there’s soooooo much more than that and it won’t even touch the surface. You will end up believing a false reality that you think you know what your doing but you don’t know how much you really don’t know. But like it doesn’t even scratch the surface don’t even attempt Get a job after those courses or coding for dummies book. You will be laughed at..

In fact I almost want to buy the coding for dummies book to have it in my collection of software books to not read. Which I will say is very small. There’s more really good books than really bad.. and obviously plenty of average. But the bell curve lands above the better half.

    is it really that bad? I wanna say I picked up one of their books on music theory a few years ago and it wasn't terrible. It may have been the idiot series Im thinkin about tho, I'll have to go dig for it when I get back home.

    @M1sf3t I found the pdf just to see what matterial the book covers and how and all that.. literally probably the single worst absolute worst software book ever to be published.. most the portions of the book tell you to go to some website to learn it.. it’s like ugh then wtf is the point of this book... it’s like the cliff notes of cliff notes something else. Like almost no code for a book called “coding”.. and the little bit of code is like JavaScript or html.. and html is not code.. it’s markup period .. like wtf.. ohhh it’s sooo bad it’s embarrassingly bad.. like might buy it just to have the worst book on the subject bad.. lol

    @QuanticoCEO ah yea that does sound pretty bad. I can't find the music book I had, it may be at my parents. I did find this while I was rummaging around, must've been in the stack my cousin left with me when he moved. I thought they were all m.e. books

    @QuanticoCEO same here or at least I used too. Most of what I got are books concerning communication and technical drawing. A couple of others on transmissions and diesel engines. I need to put some money on a card and start adding to it again.

    @QuanticoCEO yea, I'm seriously debating on locking up the tool box and taking a job making pizzas or stocking walmart just so that I can. I make good money doing what I do but it's a bit nerve wracking because anytime I get jobs lined up more than three days out people start turning to someone else that can get to them immediately.

    @M1sf3t oh that’s terrible I’m sorry for you, you shouldn’t give up tho. Keep trying try to figure out why. Don’t ever give up.

    @QuanticoCEO the why is pretty clear. People can't afford to go without transportation for very long and are willing to put up with a shop taking three weeks to fix something as long as it's off their hands and they receive a diagnosis within a day or two. I work on-site and if I just show up to tell them what the problem is, they'll have someone's neighbor order the parts and attempt to put them on before I have the chance to make it back. Either with success or leaving me with an even bigger mess to deal with.

    I wouldn't be giving up entirely tho, I had an app in the works that would alleviate some of the problem but it just became too much of a bitch to try and build that while attempting to work without it. Figure I'll revive the project just as soon as I find something simple to get by on in the meantime.

    Go ahead and show them better resources then! Personally, I have a collection of good shit to read that I recommend to people in at least 3 different languages: PHP, Javascript and Python. And would only recommend certain paid books for each one of them, definitely not "For Dummies" books.

    Java is a special topic for me, I have known Java for so long I can't for the life of me remember where I started to learn it, I can't remember if it was some pdf I got somewhere, some tutorials online or what, I just know that I know the language and I hate it.
