How to approach coding as a beginner.
Approach coding as a beginner.
In this post, I talk about the most appropriate way of approaching coding. I remember not so long ago when I was starting to code I didn't know what to focus on. Instead, I used to jump from programming language tutorial to another. This was a share waste of time and its something I should warn you about.
You may have been trying to join the night owls (programmers) but you have no clue on where to start from, well in this article I have pointed out some of the platforms and places you need to be found if you want to catch up very quickly with coding. Thank you for your time to read my article and I hope you will get some value from it.
Now let me first tell you the best approach to coding that I believe works well almost for everyone and I think it should be this way. First thing you have to start with
What is next?
Now after you have a better understanding of HTML, CSS, and JS and you have some min projects, you can start applying for jobs with just these three technologies. Some developers are earning six figures with just these.
Also, you can start solving problems at Hackerrank or Codewars. These platforms help you to put your understanding of data structures and algorithms into practice. Data structures and algorithms are a very important part of computer science and I recommend you take it seriously to practice them.
Another thing that I have discovered is to be around with experienced developers. There is a good number of communities for developers thanks to Facebook for introducing Facebook Developer Circles a community that is growing so fast. Find out about the developer meetups that are in your community. Also, networking is very important as it will ease your job hunt. You can also utilize Twitter by following some senior programmers such as Francesco and Pato.
My favorite part: "...don’t start learning frameworks like React, Vue.js, Angular, and so on just because everyone is talking about them."
I completely agree. Master the basics first, then choose a framework!
