is a code academy subscription worth it in your view?
#2
I like doing hands-on excersises when trying to learn a new programming language. Working on stuff as i go through the materials. It really depends on your personal preference, and the style of learning you enjoy the most. If you think Code Academy can provide you with what you are looking for, i'd say go for it. Subscriptions are free right?

On a related note;

When i was starting out what i'd do is Google e-books on certain subjects i was/am interested in. If you employ some simple dorks you can get great results. In example;

Code:
"The art of exploitation" inurl:('pdf|epub')

This is just an example of course, but it works for a lot of e-books. Although, nowadays we have the GreySec Resource Pool and i have the onion for the Imperial Library hidden service if you are interested. I tend to go for books that have a practical, hands on element to it. So i read about the materials, then do an included excersise and explore related topics. Now i am not saying you should be doing the same, or that one method is better than the other. Maybe try both to find out what is right for you?
