Programming knowledge can give great jobs and that’s why got more and more people trying to learn how to code. Working in the IT industry as a developer or designer is a most challenging job in the world. Maybe you have decided to learn programming or working in the programming field.
There are many places where you can learn programming and somewhat you will get better knowledge but challenging in programming is tougher than learning. and I hope some of this advice can help to ease your journey as much as possible.
Here I am sharing some experience of frustration in my journey and I hope some of this advice can help to ease your journey as much as possible.
Programming Is Hard (no doubt)
Before entering in the programming field, you must have the right mindset for learning how to code. Sure, you can start with a poor attitude but learning will take longer and you will start hating when time passes.
Programming is hard there is no doubt because even the good programmers are crossed on bugs and errors in their own code. But due to strong mindset, they do not get frustrated by solving the problem.
As the program is longer and deeper so it is normal to be confused but don’t feel discouraged it takes time of achieving its best mindset. Don’t expect instant improvement and instant result.
Below you will get the proper way to learn programming without frustrating and there is a simple way by which you can improve better.
Take One Step At A Time
As programming is endless so don’t try to get everything at once. For example, we are not taking food and water at once. We take food and water step by step in the same move your step one by one.
- Start with the fundamentals. As like every language start with letters, word and at the last sentence. For programming, we have to start with all keywords, syntax and then the overall flow of the program.
Don’t try to take advance material until you first master the basics. It is same like that for writing the poetry you just have to understand the basic rules of grammar. Don’t move further until mastery in the basics. In I tell in other words don’t try to rush it just focus on one concept at a time and complete it before moving to the next. By going in this way, you can keep yourself begin overwhelmed.
Practice regularly and play master stroke
For becoming a master in any field there is one common formula “Practice Makes Mastery“. In programming field, programming is more practical than theoretical. There will be no use of any hard work if you don’t practice regularly basics.
By seeing the long code don’t be afraid, just do practice and jump into the code you will definitely get mastery in just a few days for solving long problem task. I can’t tell you that how many time I have spent many hours for reading the documentation of code and by reading the documentation get clear in mind about that project.
Just make all the document for every necessary, instead of fearing error and bugs try to learn all the document for the program which will help in reduction in stress.
Find And Use As Many Resources As You Can
For reducing stress and time you can use all the resources which may be possible. There are many resources as you can use like videos, program documentation, learning videos, lectures etc. Every resource can help you find the right solution at right time.
One of the most important points, try to make the conversion on the forum (Best Websites A Programmer Should Visit) which will help in find quick solution. Self-taught learning is great but sometimes we get stuck in more complexly for that you should forum.
