Are you first time programmer OR Quality assurance engineer wanting to be coder?
Let me tell you story, learning Coding is similar to going to gym.
You are alone and started going to gym to be more healthy- 1st day yes it was awesome, 2nd day good, 3rd day good but 4th day you missed it due to some other work.
Now what are probability that you will continue, its really low compared to if you had started learning with a friend/mentor, he would motivate you to come to gym.
So if you want to learn try to find friend OR else an mentor.
For finding coding friends: Just check you linkedin connection and check their skills page. Example- if you looking to learn Android then find a friend who had worked on that technology and also can he afford about 6-8 hours per week for sharing knowledge.
For finding mentors: check PracticalCoding.in – Its mentor based code learning platform. Mentor are working software engineer at companies like amazon, flipkart etc. Don’t know what is mentor based learning then check this page
If you have a friend then that’s great else you can always get mentor at
