How do I start learn programming

Many start with great passion to learn, but after a while, they give up. Some people try to conquer different programming languages several times.

When something doesn’t work out right away, many people start thinking in this way:

  • I’m too stupid for that
  • I can’t learn development
  • I have a different mindset
  • I’ll never be able to learn it, why waste time?

And a lot of other apathetic thoughts. And each person can be understood, because each of us went to school. And the education system of schools, often teach that “If you could not understand something the first time, then you are stupid.”

But this is not the case. Your success depends on how much time you are willing to spend learning. At the beginning, nothing will be clear. Only by creating a base and learning from simple to complex will you be able to achieve results.

I want to highlight a number of issues that interfere with your learning before describing practical tips on how best to start learning programming.

  • I learned it once - you always know. Many beginners believe that to learn programming, they just need to take a couple of textbooks and actively read them for a week. According to their logic, after this, they will already be at a level that is above average. But most likely, the studied information is simply not remembered. The brain likes to study theory more, which can then be “fixed” by practice

  • No goal. Beginning developers often have very abstract goals that can not motivate them to learn for a long time. Learning something without a goal is a very difficult task. So, we recommend you to start your training by setting a specific goal. For example, to develop an application of a certain type. So, you will get practice and be able to motivate yourself, as you will see from topic to topic smoothly created and working projects

  • There is no structure. When you start training without understanding which material is for beginners and which is for pros - you risk getting confused and quitting the training. Development, the same science as the ones you learned at school/college. Therefore, it is best to find a program for yourself and start learning according to the scheme “from simple to complex”

  • High expectations. Many people believe wrong that learning a programming language is all that is required of them. However, to pass an interview with a client, you need to be able to communicate and have a portfolio. For the first time, you may have to work even without paying. And all just to develop a portfolio. It’s emotionally hard and a lot of people decide it’s not for them after all the way through training. However, if you really want to spend time to development and earn money, you can not be afraid of that

  • Concentration. The problem in training for several years now is concentration. People’s attention has become very distracted due to the rhythm of modern life that takes place in gadgets. Learning programming without concentration is very difficult. Therefore, we recommend the following methods to help you concentrate:

  • Define the purpose of the development training

  • Build a plan, based on the “from less to more" system

  • When you start studying, remove distractions

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.

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.

  • Java developer — $79,137 / yr
  • Python developer — $76,526 / yr
  • JavaScript developer — $79,137 / yr
  • Go developer — $75,715 / yr
  • Ruby developer — $75,715 / yr
  • C Net developer — $75,715 / yr
  • Swift developer — $75,715 / yr
  • C++ developer — $76,526 / yr

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;
