Decent coding timetable

I know Treehouse uses learning adventures to structure your learning but I was wondering if anyone knew of a structured timetable that I could use to help learn code. I have found http://prework.flatironschool.com which is good but I was wanting to mix it somewhat.

If there's anything else like the above link that would be awesome.

Cheers.

If you do one-three videos a day, you'll learn a lot and not be overwhelmed. If you have a lot of time to tackle learning, then do as much as you feel comfortable with.

Very interesting find. Either the timeline seems really aggressive to me or they want you to just speed read the material. For instance, Flatiron recommends spending 6 hours on the Team Treehouse CSS Foundations for someone with zero experience. The link is out of date so the timetable is probably based on the old, pre-Guil Hernandez CSS Foundations.

Even so, as a lone reference point, I finished CSS Foundations yesterday. Over a month and a half, I probably put somewhere around 30-50 hours into it. Maybe I spent too long absorbing knowledge. I have nearly no HTML/CSS experience, but not new to coding--about 150-200 hours of Java experience.

Interesting idea about subscribing to both Treehouse and Code School. Haven't figured out their relationship yet--both in Orlando and seem to be the competition.

I just finished my last cert today (CompTIA Security+) and will be studying web design full-time for the remainder of June. I'm very interested in seeing other timetables or what you might come up with, since you've mentioned before you're aiming for 9-10 hour dedicated days soon.

Awesome news on your CompTIA Security+ cert. It's a path that looks interesting to me once I've started learning code.

I'll most likely be creating my own timetable and use Flatiron as a base line. I want to create my own bootcamp type calendar, just looking for examples like the Flatiron which I can pick and choose lessons.

I'll let you know when I've finished my timetable, there might be some more interesting links to check out.

Check out Bootcamper.io - they link to a whole bunch of different bootcamps. I've been checking them out lately and some of them show what they cover on a per week basis. Could be used as a bit of a check list.
