Ed and Tom run through the learning resources they find most useful. Which of our hosts has never made it all the way through a coding book? Who cheats at tests? Why doesn't Ed like watching video tutorials? Why does Medium mean Ed has to dust off the "bleeper" (and what even is a d$£kbar anyway)? Find out in this week's intriguing instalment of A Question of Code!

What is A Question of Code?

A newbie coder and a seasoned veteran discuss the questions that always come up when someone begins learning to code.

Ed is looking at getting a career in programming and has been learning to code for just over a year. During this time he’s been building up a stack of questions that keep coming up from other newbie coders. Luckily, he’s got someone he can ask for help: Tom. Tom’s a seasoned coder, having worked in the industry for a few years now and has all the answers Ed needs, or does he?
