This post may overwhelm you 😰. I tried to organize the materials very well and tried to cover everything. They are a lot, so just check out what you want to learn, and dive into it πŸ‘©β€πŸ’»

Hello again, friends. πŸ‘‹ Yesterday, I have shared free Next.js resources, today I decided to make a comprehensive list including

  • how to learn CS for free,
  • how to learn algorithms with free courses,
  • practice with competitive programming.

After learning all the stuff, you can apply for a job; so I needed to add Interview resources you can use for free and some communities you can join.
