    Presumably it was lower at a different time (I guess 9.99 EUR or 9.99 GBP which is still unfair though).

    Also take a look at MMTUTS HTML, CSS and PHP courses on youtube.

    Python is a good language to start with. It's taught to kids now. It's high level so you can achieve more functionality with less effort.

    I got a Raspberry Pi 3 at Xmas intending to learn Python and do something funky with it... no inspiration just yet...

    Having said that today, we're thinking to set up a covert security camera, so I might look to use it for that, but even then, it's not me coding, I expect I will use someone's pre-written code.

    Any good places for Pi inspiration?

    Bucket loads of instructions and pre-build modules, but still need to work a little bit out to configure them. Was my first Pi project, great to break you in gently!

    I've just found a Youtuber called AngelSix...

    High recommend him so far. Doing the very first c# video and it's explaining everything very well, IDE and C#. It's well planned, well spoken, video is top notch. Hoping the rest of the series carries on like this.

    He's got playlists on the following:

    ASP.NET Core Server Dev
    WPF UI Programming (C#)
    Web Dev
    .Net Core tutorials
    C# programming beginners
    general programming
    general computing
    data & file formats
    SolidWorks API (C#)
    gaming

    depends on the type of book/learning you are doing.

    If you want to learn the web side of it I probably wouldn't bother with a book but check out the freecodecamp project.

    If you want to learn from scratch with little to no knowledge, check out the head first books.

    If you simply want a reference book then you'll be looking at bibles or cookbooks for the language you are using.

    FYI, html and CSS are considered scripting and not programming, Python for instance falls under both headings depending on what you're doing with it. What language are you interested in? or, what are you looking to create?

    For the price of a 3 technical books you could just get a second cheap monitor and use that ;)
