Programming for Beginners

Recommended Posts

First choose a programming language that you want to learn. This will depend most on why you want to learn programming. To begin with you can take some online classes, that you can get on websites like Codemy and Udemy. I'm not sure but they may have some free classes,which you can sign up for. You can learn at your own pace, there is no set time given for you to complete a class. I think this is very useful,especially when you're  learning something for the first time. I hope this was helpful.

Try w3schools.com. If you prefer on creating your own website, try html first. That's the first thing taught to us when we were on first year college. If we don't learn from our professors, we stick to that site. Or we prolly just copy paste each others work and then change the design hahaha. Good times!

I've been using pluralsight.com for months now.   Although you have to pay to  subscribe to the sight for a fee, you can have
access to hundreds of courses from programming, server maintenance and database administration. While studying a course,
you can control the pace of the  video, take notes and practice with online exercises.

For me, finding a course to learn programming is the easy part.  The challenging part is building up an experience on the language that you have
recently learned.  You need to engage on some project that would allow you apply the skills that you have learned on the course.

you should start on Basic HTML , it is the easiest way to learn programming and you can use that language together with some advance language like PHP, and if you want to learn by your self many free o paid online courses you can find on the internet so just look on your self and if you need help, you can ask a question here. i recommend to start on the basic.

W3Schools is a great website for beginners. You should also try TheNewBoston's website or youtube channel. That's where I personally learn web technologies. While learning these materials, you should practice writing them on your PC too. This will help retain the new knowledge.

You might want to consider what kind of application are planning to make. Some programming language have different application like website building electronics  , standalone programs and integration. If one of these applications interest you try a programming language that's best suit you. For example, if your planning to go for a website developer try HTML , JAVA , CSS etc..

I think before you start you should ask yourself which language you want to learn because you should probably focus on only one for the time being. I can tell you that HTML and PHP are very beginner friendly so it could be a good way to start off. Next, as some people have already mentioned, try and think what sort of applications/software/programs would you want to create? What interests you? Because certain languages focus on certain things more. 

After that, just dive into the beginner guides and tutorials that you can find everywhere. You can also check out YouTube - many very experienced coders post videos there and explain everything in great detail.

I think you should enroll for short course about programming.  A two year course is enough to learn this, just to get the basic knowledge about programming.  You need the hands on or actual learning about this.  It's really hard to just rely on the hearsay.  However, there a lot of tutorials in YouTube videos which is very easy to understand.
