What should I learn next?

I'm a 14 year old teenager really enthusiastic with coding and programming. I've taught myself python, HTML and CSS and now i'm stuck. What language should I go for next (preferably one with resources to learn).

It really depends on what you want to do. Learning for the sake of learning is of course great, but you should definitely have a goal. I know I learn better when I'm actually shooting for something. And remember that you can always get better at what you already know - it's like they say: the wisest man has something yet to learn.

Thanks for the great advice! I've always wanted to build a phone application, but just looking at the syntax of Java or Objective-C really scares me.

Yeah, I felt the same way about Objective-C when I started out. I have only minor experience with Java, but it didn't take long before I was very comfortable with Objective-C. Here are some resources you should check out if you get serious about learning to develop apps for iOS.

  • iOS Development track at Team Treehouse (of course)
  • Ray Wenderlich
  • Programming in Objective-C by Stephen Kochan
  • iOS Programming (The Big Nerd Ranch Guide) by Conway & Hillegass
  • Apple

These are some great resources and I have used them all.

Another nice about iOS development: The documentation that Apple provides is so extensive and well-written that it's almost magical. If you go this road, that will be your bible.

Good luck!

I'd either go for Javascript & jQuery or PHP after HTML/CSS. :)

Thanks! I'll consider. Can you suggest any resources for learning php other than Treehouse and Codeacademy?
