Immersing in coding language

What are some good YouTube channels, blogs, forums, podcasts, facebook pages, instagram pages, channels, etc. that one can read/join to get themselves more familiar in coding language. I am having a hard time memorizing all the terms and different codes. something i can listen to in the car or watch/read on a bathroom break. Thanks everyone!

I don't know of any podcasts where they really dive into actual code but the Code Newbie and freeCodeCamp are both good. Code Newbie is like listening in on a programming conversation and the fCC podcast is usually someone reading from a Medium article they wrote.

I think the best way to ingrain code in your brain is to actually code and put what you are learning to use. It doesn't have to be a full-blown project or anything fancy. If you are working on HTML maybe write out a quick nav bar or a header element while on break. If you are working on CSS think of some styling you might do and write out the code for it. If you are on JavaScript maybe write a for loop or some simple functions. You can even do this on a piece of paper if you don't have access to a computer.

Just keep in mind that looking up code and reading documentation is a big part of coding so don't put to much pressure on yourself to try and memorize everything.
