How To Learn Any Programming Language? This Will Help.
If you are pondering on “how can I learn a programming language?” then first and foremost, ask yourself “how did I learn English or Tamil or any other language?” Computer Programming languages are more or less to be learned the same way as any other regional language.
How to get started?
Yes, it is as simple as learning a regional language. Generally, we start with the alphabets, then the words, then grammar, then the phrases, then essays, and so on. While learning a programming language we tend to follow a specified structure. For more clarification, kindly view this video!
Now that we know how to begin and what to ‘learn’, we can move ahead and step up to the next level and by that. To clarify, with all this explanation, we do not mean learn five languages at a time. It will only complicate things and bring in a lot of confusion.
The thing to clearly understand is that –
It might always be a pinch harder to learn your first language!
However, once you get into the flow and learn the first language, then it will help you learn all the other languages with ease.
The keynote is to master one programming language in order to learn other programming languages. Exactly like the ring from the movie,’ The Lord of the Rings. It gets easier and easier to learn a new programming language once you master your first programming language.
Where to get started?
It is of utmost importance that you understand the fundamentals of a programming language before moving on. An intro to the world of computer science and the amazing things that we can do with programming skills would be a great idea when you are first starting out.
Talk to other people who have more knowledge about the language in order to know where to learn more about it.
But how do we achieve it?
“Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.”
Suppose, you learn a language, say French, but you don’t use the language for a week or a month, what happens?
Like water evaporating from a pond in summer, it will go down the drain without leaving behind a trace, won’t it? The same happens with a programming language.
Try out a few languages and select the one which comes naturally to you. Don’t choose one for the sake of jobs, because, from an interview point of view, you will do much better with a programming language that comes naturally to you.
One must practice daily, that is code daily! Yes, the more you practice, you get better at it! Here is what you want-
Programming languages are just like any other human language. It’s a language, after all. A medium of communication. You won’t feel like it’s master until you understand it! To understand it better, solve more problems and get better at it! Here is what you want-
Practicing on a computer is a good thing but finding the logic without actually running the code will help you learn even better.
“Practise, Practise, Practise, Code, Code, Code”
should be your mantra!GUVI
The more you code the more you learn!
Can anyone learn to code? Don’t believe it! This Quora question will answer all your queries. Even people with significant disabilities have learned to code and become professional software engineers.
So how did they do it?
A little interest, a little more dedication, and a lot of hard work!
We all have the ability to do so, why not do it?
