If you want to learn anything about computers, you should read books rather than watch videos. Books are far easier to follow, you can skip what you already know, and just go to the pages you are interested in. Videos on the other hand waste a lot of time because nothing happens and you have to wait for the real scene to begin, or they tel you things you already know.

"Computing" is a too broad subject.

Decide what do you want to learn, then find resources for that.

HTH,

Master Your Team's Linux and Cloud Stack!

The average business loses $13.5M per year to ineffective training (per 1,000 employees). Keep ahead of the competition and combine in-person quality with online cost and flexibility by training with Linux Academy.

I mean a book or text in electronic form. You can read it on different PC. Everyone can then go on his own pace, and one doesn't have to wait for the other one to finish or slow the other down. Reading is much easier to for learning than videos. Videos make people stupid.

Good suggestion about book. I opened another question asking experts if they learned on a pdf book, actual book, or video.

I have videos to learn about Microsoft Access, which is an application to help you manage information.  The first lesson in the LearnAccess playlist is general and explains what different applications do.  It is only 10 minutes and a good introduction to computer applications and what they do:

Learn Access -1- Perspective

Every business has information so Access is good to know if you decide to continue learning about it -- and there are several hours of videos ~

Apparently you are in early beginnings.
Computing is general term for calculation done on computers.

Can you describe result you want to achieve so some learning path can be suggested?

How about Eli the computer guy on youtube?

It's not a formal course, rather a collection of videos, so you would have to choose the order yourself.  But he covers lots of topics with easy-to-follow explanations.

Plurialsight is probably the best one you mentioned..

I'm using these plateforms too, there are plenty of free coupon code on the web.

path to software without starting at "hello world"

because i got confused at design patterns which is beyond object oriented programming


maybe "hello world" is the middle



Another example:

php has a mail library where I was sending email to customers using a template
dear $firstName $lastName,
thank you for your order: $orderID
You will receive $productTitle
in the mail shortly to $customerAddress



I was using smtp to send the mail but did not know what was going on until I saw a network+ video telling me that smtp is one of the many protocols
