  1. Well, for me there is no definite answer to this question as it varies according to each individual's need, however, there are some programming languages that a beginner can definitely learn and excel. Python and Ruby are well established as the easiest programming languages for beginners due to their simple and readable syntax. Java, C, C++, and JavaScript are also recommended due to their widespread use and tons of support material available on the web.
  2. I believe Windows will automatically defrag your system on a regular schedule. Once Windows 10 detects that you are using a standard hard disk drive, then, it will periodically defragment it. But, if it detects that you are using an SSD, then, it won't ever attempt to defragment it at all. This process of automated defragmentation started with Windows 7 (without skipping SSDs) and further improved with Windows 10.
  3. It can be very annoying to get an older program to run in Windows 7. These programs are often not compatible with your current installation of Windows, and yet they are essential for your daily usage. So what can you do about it? Luckily, there is this Program Compatibility Wizard in Windows 7 that can make things slightly easier, so you can try to use this tool and check if it can help solve your issues.
  4. Personally, I enjoy working with different sets of data and constructing new methods to make business reporting more efficient. It is as challenging as I make it, but the more work I put in the more rewarding the results as I see the business shape around my achievements. Also, it really is quite fascinating to see how different types of data stored in different tables interact with each other and serve as the building block of the application.

    Fixing Bugs

    Most of the time when I do my coding, I already have specific scenarios that I am planning to test. Usually, it involved testing negative, positive, and exceptional scenarios to make sure that the code will not break once it is deployed into production. Keep in mind that the longer a bug is kept and not detected into the system, the higher the cost of fixing it once it's already in go-live.
  6. Absolutely! The web is full of free resources that can turn you into a programmer in no time. If you're really serious about becoming a programmer, you can get off to a running start using tons of resources available on the internet. All you need is the initiative, and the dedication to really understand the usually free web-based tutorials and resources available out there.
  7. For me my first programming language was C++. It was part of our curriculum back in college when I was getting my degree in Computer Science.
  8. Just a very short intro. AJAX = Asynchronous JavaScript and XML. It is a technique for creating fast and dynamic web pages. Before you continue you should have a basic understanding of the following: HTML / XHTML CSS JavaScript / DOM AJAX is based on internet standards, and uses a combination of: XMLHttpRequest object (to exchange data asynchronously with a server) JavaScript/DOM (to display/interact with the information) CSS (to style the data) XML (often used as the format for transferring data)
  9. You have to be more specific. Is it programming for web? Then go for PHP Is it for standalone applications? Then go Java. There are a ton of resources, tutorials, sample codes, etc in the Internet, you only need to choose which one suits you best and what really interests you.
  10. One of the most popular free places to learn coding is CodeAcademy. It is an online, interactive platform that offers free coding classes in 12 different programming languages including Python, Java, JavaScript. But of course you have to have the determination and the willingness to learn if you want to study programming. There are tons of resources on the Internet, however if you don't have the initiative then its of no use.
  11. HTML5 is by far is the most advanced version of the HTML standard created to to open up a whole new world of multimedia possibilities for designers and developers alike. Therefore it would be better to learn HTML 5 as it offers you a diverse range of new elements, attributes, and technologies to help you enhance the look, feel, structure and functioning of your web projects.
  12. Ah yes, the Windows 95. It was actually reported that Microsoft paid the Rolling Stones $8 million dollars so that they can use the song 'You Start Me Up' as the launch theme song haha, good times 🤣
  13. Speaking from personal experience, I would say for me the best e-commerce solution would be Magento. There are reason why Magento is considered a go-to option when it comes to developing a marketplace - it is simple to implement, easy to use, flexible enough to adjust to business requirements, compatible with the majority of services and most importantly reasonably priced

    There are various ways for developers to test their code, particularly if the project is utilizing CICD. One of such is linting, which is a static way of code analysis.
