There are numerous places where you can learn new skills. As far as development, the ones that I use most often are:
  • oreilly.com - Subscription to thousands of technical books. There's a free 10-day trial. ~$50 USD a month after that.
  • udemy.com - You can find some good courses on here if you prefer more of a follow along style. Never pay full price for a course--they go on sale all the time. Should be able to find a good course for less than $20 USD. Flash sale currently going on.
  • Official documentation - going to the source is a great reference, and occasionally there are actually some decent tutorials/getting started guides.

It depends on how well you want to learn the skill. I am in the process of doing Launch School which I would highly recommend if you truly want to put the time and effort into mastering coding. I found personally that udemy and youtube tutorials were lacking if you were trying to learn the concepts yourself. You may end up getting a patchwork of knowledge that may or may not help you.

When I'm learning something new, and it's not going well, it's usually because I'm starting too deep with the topic without understanding key foundational concepts.

I'd recommend learning the basics first. Search for "Beginning Programming" or "Programming Basics". Once you're comfortable with if/then, variables, and data types, then you should pick a language to study.

Learning programming is a process, not an event. It's going to take some time and some hard work. But the more you keep at it, the more you will master. Don't give up and good luck!

Welcome to the coding journey Kwara! It's a fun but tedious road so I'm hoping you have some mettle. One of the hardest things about learning to program is that there's just so many technologies and different ways of learning different stuff. I recommend that you use a roadmap from Developer Roadmaps (Perhaps the front-end one) to start your journey. You would probably benefit from starting the front-end roadmap first. Use these to get your feet wet and understand where tech generally fits together in the greater ecosystem, and then once you have a general understanding of what you don't know, simply problem solve your way into a solution. Udemy courses are great resources and they have sales 5-6 times a month. Never pay full price for a Udemy course.

If you are very strong on the business side, consider finding a technical cofounder that can focus specifically on the technology in your stack. You don't NEED one, but they can be nice to have!

Good luck!
