Entrepreneur looking to learn specific skills but do not know where to start...

Hello, I am an entrepreneur from Europe and I would like to learn specific skills to manage my business. Currently I am getting clients to ask me to build app ideas for them and run the business from A to Z. I am outsourcing the work to developers who deliver the code... I really need to learn how to manage the code and set up all applications securely to manage all projects on my own after delivered to me. I am a complete beginner , dont know how to code or set up a server and such...

I would be so thankful if someone could guide me on where to start to be able to manage all projects on my own securely.

Hi Pablo!

I welcome other forum moderators and students to weigh in on this question (being a broad topic).

Although it may be more time-consuming than you want, this sounds like a good place to start:

I definitely recommend getting a strong foundation in HTML, CSS, and JavaScript (take every course Treehouse offers on them, if you can).

Also, I recommend getting familiar with many other 3rd party resources to round out your knowledge (and for quick reference) including:

https://www.w3schools.com/

https://www.freecodecamp.org/

https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/

https://www.youtube.com/user/derekbanas (His videos are awesome - he talks FAST!!!)

https://css-tricks.com/

Also, it would probably be prudent to find a local community of coders or a meetup group, so you have peers to learn from directly.

Anyway, that my initial $0.02!?!

I hope that helps.

Stay safe and happy coding!
