More specifically scriptia blog will give you the 5 java script tips to follow to get started with programming. Choose the good programming language, learn quickly and correctly, and use best practices to a level that suits you in programming.
Step 1: Find areas that you like
This is a very important step. Ask yourself the following question:
Why do I want to learn to program?
Note the 3 main reasons that come to mind and do not continue until you have step 3.
Why do this? Because a programmer is more motivated when he makes what he like. It is one of the best ways to learn and so begin in programming :
Do what you want.
By doing what we like we give up less easily and move faster.
It’s done? you have noted these three reasons that push you to learn programming?
Are these 3 reasons that will guide you in any of the following to find out where you should start. You can simply choose them in General but are simply sure at this stage that these are the areas which you like the most.
So that you understand me, I’ll do the process at the same time you with an example, here are my 3 reasons:
I want to learn programming for:
- Create software
- Better understand the systems
- Create web sites
Step 2: Add clarification to these areas
If you want to learn programming because it looks cool or fashionable, you will know what to do. I’m not saying there is no need to learn to program just because it’s “fashionable”, but you need to achieve your desires in this 2nd step.
He must now clarify each of your previously established reasons. So take them one by one and add details. Among these details must note the time you want to spend to learn as well as the operating systems covered. Here is my example:
- Create software-> create software Utilities quickly for Windows (disinfection, cleaning, antivirus).
- Better understand the systems-> better understand how operating systems (Windows and Linux) and How to interact with them on the side programmer. It can take as long as it takes.
- Create web sites-> create personal web sites to make way for my imagination without having to pay a developer. Here the operating system will not change but the site should be functional on the mobile. I want to learn enough fast (in 6 months max).
Note: Your reasons may be initially broad as “teach me computer” but need you the clarify the most possible. If your details are many, write a paragraph, but find most important for you until you have something concrete to start which, as in my example.
Step 3: Deduce (s) language (s) of programming by the (s) what start
Now that you know why you want to start programming, as well as the time and the target system, you will much more easily get the languages in which you start.
I go back to my example, then I will give more general information:
-If I want to create utilities under Windows in a timely manner, I will naturally point me towards languages “dot.net” (.NET) Visual C++, c#, VB.NET. To come to this conclusion, just do a quick search as “programming Windows” or “Windows programming language”. We also learn that the languages Java or even Python (not exhaustive) can also be used. Dotnet languages are simply more adapted. And this because they are created by Microsoft itself, the editor of Windows.
Let’s say that there is a choice to be made here between dot.net and others: Java and Python are portable that you can later use to program under other systems like Linux . On the other hand the dot.net languages are targeted for Windows only (I do not count portability via third-party programs () tests and can therefore be programmed more easily and quickly, especially via the Visual Studio integrated development environment. If I prefer to learn a less portable but language that allows me to do a program windowed in less than an hour, I’ll choose a dot.net language. Conversely, if I want my program embarks on other systems, I would choose Python.
Let’s say here that I choose VB.NET or c# because I am not particularly systems other than Windows.
-Regarding my desire to know the OS in detail at my own pace I’ll have to take a common operating systems programming language, and allows to have the hand on them. The C language is the one that will be most suitable because it allows to be close to the system, and it is portable. But Python will be easier to master, and will give me more flexibility in the future. I will start with C to understand the basic operation of the systems, and then I’ll come to Python as a language of “everyday”. I do that again because I want to take the time to understand. You can see at the same time there is need to stay fixed on a given language.
Important note: You can very well learn other languages not mentioned or even learn languages in different areas like C for glass applications Windows. But it all depends on your goals, for me who wanted to build Windows quickly, the C language programs also works but I can’t do much less quickly than the c#. If I have all my time to do it, that portability is important to me and I wish well master the system, I can actually choose the C instead of a language dotnet.
Note about HTML: I don’t know who is at the origin of the myth that you have to start with the HTML, but it’s totally false. Remember once again what I said above: it all depends on your goals and “learn to program” is not a precise goal. HTML is a markup language, not other languages referred to here approaching. And personally I think that learning HTML (which is fast in itself) we will not teach you to program and won’t give you useful databases if you do not want to do web development then.
- C/C++…etc : learning thorough systems and networks but they need time to master them
- .NET/Java/Python…etc : versatile and easier to control. They are very popular.
- Assembler, Perl, Go, Swift.. .etc: required, depending on your goals.
Reviews for programming languages are often subjective, so you can always find examples of programs created with given programming languages to see for yourself if the language seems to be the best for you.
Note also that there is no big problem on starting with the “best language” for you or not, you can learn more at the same time or rather change if you ever notice that you don’t like or don’t work not. The idea here is to make the first move, to seek and to go instead of waiting to find the “best” language.
Step 4: Take an e-book, a book or a video course and practice
Contrary to what you might believe, the programming has no magic, everyone follows a learning mode. Programming requires time and practice.
Comes now the longest, but also the most exciting step if you start your adventure: it’s time to learn and practice. You know what you want to do, you know what language to use, you have a computer or a device for programming. So you have everything before you left to look for resources and practice.
I’d maybe guides and specific articles about the languages that I know and that you are interested in. For this give me comment out your three areas of step 2 as well as the language you are interested in. I cannot tell you if you’re meant to do this or even if your goals are good (it’s for you to judge), but maybe I could help you more to master a given language.
Start small, read the code, write your own code by projects, challenges.
It should be noted that it is very important to understand how to write a program to read but you’ll really write it that When you have practiced and specifically wrote this program yourself.
I learned too late.
For the record, I read almost all the programming books at FNAC one year and in the end I almost forgotten everything except a few snippets of code that I’ve actually typed on a keyboard.
This learning by doing is the best way to learn programming and it is this learning tool that I propose in the guide to learn to program in C, c#, and Python for those who aim to control a operating system during their apprenticeship.
By the way, if you have decided to learn how to better control operating systems and so to understand the workings of computers, I suggest you learn Linux which has the advantage of being more “open” than Windows and that helps to better understand “how it works inside”.
The Blog of the Hacker courses
These are guides in digital (to read on computer, tablet or smartphone) version written by me that I offer to acquire right now.
The digital version allows you to copy/paste the code and click on links, which came in handy when learning programming.
How create as many
websites as you want, as you see fit.
How make the right
choices about the implementation of your site and the path to follow
in order to save money.
All the additional skills
on a technical level: architecture, code, design, and the security
of a site.
You’ll set up your web
project, regardless its type: blog, website, forum, e-commerce..
You will have a hands-on
and simple to follow, allowing you to put sites on foot more quickly
than with an external provider.
Your skills can be used to other people, and will be
requested on the labour market.
