Learn to Code: Step by step guide

With humans moving towards digital world. This is the best time to learn the language of computers. According to Evans Data, By 2030 there will be a demand for 45 million software developers in world. And based on current statistics the number of software developers will be smaller than the demand, which is going to make it a lucrative job with best job benefits available. Learning to code can be daunting process with lots of different technologies and a belief that programming is complicated or relies heavily on Maths.

Although there isn’t a single/right way of learning programming. Different people learn it in different ways. Below is a guide which will give you a decent roadmap for starting a career.

Motivation

Programming is a long process. You have to spend a lot of time practicing and reading before you reach a point where you get comfortable. So, it’s very important to keep yourself motivated through out the journey. My best advice is to keep creating things. Don’t aim for complex functionalities, set your expectations low.

Build the most simplest thing you can think of then second most simplest thing, that’s how you win

Keep celebrating when you build small things, it keeps you motivated to move forward.

Choose a Platform

There are lots of languages you can start with. Instead of randomly picking up a language, take your time and think what would you like to create. (Mobile App, Websites, Games, Automation tools). Once you choose a platform do a small research and try to find out which is the most popular language for that platform. For e.g. if it’s Android (Java/Flutter/React native), IOS (Swift/Flutter/React Native) etc. Once you have that you can start looking for tutorials on that particular language. For absolute beginners, I would suggest to start with Website design, because it has easier learning curve and provides quick wins which keeps you motivated constantly. Let’s continue the guide with Website Design.

HTML

For web design HTML is the basic building blocks and one of the easiest thing to learn. It helps you create basic blocks/boxes where you put your content in the website. Here are some of the resources that you can learn HTML from:

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.

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.
