Brain boosting foods, which help you to learn programming

Learning is a long process of getting new knowledge, and it’s not always going as easy as we would like to. Sometimes it’s not easy to remember something or understand, and then we start to look for something to improve our ability to remember things and boost our brain. It’s not necessary to look in the pharmacy, because we can find a lot of natural brain boosters in grocery.

A good diet is essential for the proper functioning of our brain, and I realized it in my example. This is why I would like to share with you 10 natural things I eat to improve brain function.

I’ve also prepared a video episode about it with a bonus recipe at the end, so feel free to take a look.

1. Nuts

Nuts are one of the best natural brain boosters, and it’s easily accessible in every grocery. The main advantage of nuts is that it’s rich in omega 3 acids, and it is also full of vitamins, antioxidants, and minerals. Omega 3 acids are great for improving brain functioning.

I believe that nuts may not be your favorite snack for every day, but you can easily get the advantage of the nuts eating good quality peanut butter. Of course, you can combine it with something else to make it tasty. The other way is to add a bunch of nuts to your oatmeal, for example.

2. Avocado

Avocado is another easily accessible food which is also a brain booster. It contains Vitamin K and folate, which are responsible for improving your memory and focus. And those two are very important when you are learning.

Avocados are also rich in Vitamin B and C, which makes avocados the best fruit to improve memory. Those brain-boosting benefits may be the reason why avocados are so popular right now.

If you like the taste of avocados, you can eat it with toast, or feel free to add it to the smoothie of creating tasty guacamole.

The Most Important Programming Lesson I Ever Learned

In the fall of 2012, I walked into my graduate advisor’s office and asked her which computer science class she recommended for me to enroll in. I explained that I was a complete novice in programming. She suggested Introduction to C Programming.

After attending a few lectures, I discover that the majority of the students I spoke to in this introductorycourse had some prior experience in programming.

Six weeks and 80 hours of work later, I dropped the course.

Enter spring semester of 2013. I enrolled in an easier computer science course, Introduction to Computer Programming via the Web. I breezed through the first quarter of the course, executing HTML and CSS with ease. Then, we started Javascript (JS). That feeling of constant anxiety and stress from my previous computer science course returned in full fashion. It was too late in the semester to drop the course, so I asked a friend for help.

Learning to Code: How to Boost Up the Process?

Let’s face it: people are impatient by nature and most likely want things to happen faster in their lives. I would apply the same to code learners. Students, when starting to learn programming, first wonder how to speed up the training and make a career as a programmer as soon as possible.

I am not the one who convinces everyone that learning to program is a lightning-fast journey — the other thing is that it is not as difficult as people think. All boils down to interest, passion, regular practice, and patience, of course. I also often recommend different online and offline resources to my students to make their learning process easier, more effective, and faster. And in this post, I will share a few tips with you.

So, How to Learn Programming Languages Faster?

These tips are not magic pills and probably won’t make you a professional developer in a week, but they will definitely make your life easier, while the learning process won’t be that intimidating, vague, and boring. Besides, following all of them together may speed up training.

So, without any further delay, let’s get to them.

Consolidate Your Knowledge by Practicing More

No matter how simple a new subject is, it still requires you to consolidate your knowledge. Starting to play with code soon after you’ve completed the next section helps you learn the given concepts faster and feel confident when writing your first line of code. Fortunately, the web is full of platforms, where you can start practicing shortly.

Let’s consider them in detail.

Learn to Program Better with The Weekly Spot Drill

Most of us have fallen into this trap. We’re so focused on learning a topic or honing a skill that we don’t touch previously learned information for weeks or months.

Web development is a classic example. There are many technologies and topics to learn, and most of us learn them sequentially. You focus on CSS for a while, then put it on hold to learn the intricacies of React. Or take problem-solving. You focus exclusively on problems that involve arrays. Then strings. Then hash tables.

There’s a problem with this approach. Soon comes the day when we need to apply knowledge that we learned a few weeks ago. And we can’t, at least not easily. We’ve forgotten what we’ve learned. We’ve lost our edge.

It doesn’t have to be this way. In part, the solution involves using Anki flashcards on a daily basis. It’s a topic I’ve written about before, and it’s a great way to keep information fresh and top of mind.

The other part of the solution is what I call the “weekly spot drill.” Once per week, work on a project or problem related to something you previously learned — and unrelated to what you’re currently learning about or working on.

If you’re learning JavaScript right now, solve a problem in Python. If you’re solving tons of problems that involve arrays, pick one that involves strings.

The weekly spot drill will keep your skills sharp — ensure that you’re ready, not rusty — and deepen your knowledge. That’s because you’ll uncover another layer each time you revisit a topic. Plus, this practice will teach you to pivot: to use the best tool to solve the problem, not necessarily the one you’re currently focused on.

An example from the game of baseball drives home the point.

Learning C++: Variable Scope

Variable scope refers to the ability of a variable to be “seen” in a program. A variable is seen if, in a specific place in a program, the programmer has access to that variable’s value. There are levels of scope in a C++ program, with the level of scope determining how widely a variable can be seen in a program. In this article I’m going to discuss the different levels of variable scope and why they are important.

The Scope Levels

Here are the three levels of scope in a C++ program: global, local, and block. Global is the most expansive scope and means that any variable declared with global scope can be seen in any place in a program. Local scope usually refers to a variable defined in a function and can be seen throughout that function, but not in other functions. Block scope means a variable was defined within a block of code, such as a for loop or an if statement.

With these definitions out of the way, let’s look at how these different scope levels affect a C++ program.

Global Scope

A variable that has global scope can be seen in any other part of a C++ program, from a function definition to a block of code. A variable that is defined outside of the main function is a global variable.

Here is an example that demonstrates how global scope works:

#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

// global space
int number = 1;
void showValue() {
  cout << "Number accessed from a function: " << number << endl;
int main ()
  cout << "Number accessed from the main function: "
       << number << endl;
  for (int i = 1; i <= 1; i++) {
    cout << "Number accessed from a block: " << number << endl;
  return 0;

13 Reasons Why It’s High Time to Start Learning to Program

Software development is something that is gaining popularity at lightning speed with the development of technology. The demand for regular developers is high compared to most other mainstream professions. But, what are the other reasons for learning to code?

Given my experience as a software engineer and Java tutor, I’ve come up with many reasons, and, in this blog post, I am going to share them with you. Hope they will lead you to an informed decision.

1. Generous Salary

Salary is a frequently discussed subject in a programming environment. Compared to many other industries, software engineering allows specialists to receive a way higher average wage.

To avoid being verbose and prove that you are a future high-demand expert, I will give you real numbers based on data from Glassdoor job and recruiting website. The salary rate is the average between the length of service and all geographical data. It also depends on the coding language you are mastering.
