. Thanks. I didn’t know about Google before this thread and now I learned about YouTube. Thanks
I mean go ahead. Spend money on a private course somewhere that might not be everything you hoped for.

Sounds like the rest of our education system lol.

When you're up to speed codeproject.com has a ton of great examples. I've been coding for > 30 years and the last 10 that has been a great resource.

There are bootcamps as well. Your biggest issue will be getting your foot in the door, especially on side hustles. When I think of a side hustle, it's an experienced person taking on some afterhours work that they need little to no guidance or oversight on. Depending on what you want to do, once you are competent it might be a good idea to reach out to small business owner friends looking to automate/track/market via applications or web and do some pro bono work.

I was being sarcastic lol. I found a couple very helpful YouTube pages. Look for something a bit more structured though. Games as well or the lessons being more interactive have been helpful

One of the most useful formulas in excel are vlookups. I would experiment with them. With excel, I tend to just google when I'm stuck.

Stackoverflow.com is a site I like to use for basic windows commands used in batch files/scripts.

What kind of job are you really interested in? The key word is really.
