If you get stuck on an exercise, most exercises have a little “Hint” section which you can click on for more advice, tips, and tricks.
I have definitely been enjoying my first exploration into programming, although there were definitely a few grumblings here and there (grrr….parentheses!).
If you are looking to start learning to program for fun, I definitely recommend checking out Codecademy. Not only is it super fun and easy to use, but it’s free, and nothing gets much better than that!
