you're a f**cking beggar. e remain to carry bowl dey beg for here.
Besides you have no sense. Anybody giving you that money will be throwing it away.
Any one who really wants to learn how to program will do so with the little he has?
They'll browse the net, use a desktop until they get a lappy (code still compiles on desktop)
and study using ebooks until they can buy real books (if ever). You just want money under the guise of learning programming, and that 10 weeks course crap you're talking about .. Good for those who have the money, but they're alternatives.
Go on youtube and check out how to learn to program, all you'll see there is going to be DIY.
If you dont have money for bootcamp, learn on your own!! Dammit!!
If you can't even learn on your forget it. Nobody will always teach you.
Hope this helps.
Return that N10k you stole thru begging. angry sad

Thank you for the insults.
I neither own a computer nor a smartphone. I am using a nokia c3 phone so how do I read ebooks? Again thank you.

Your statement can't be verified. Many people come on nairaland to scam people. Exploiting and abusing human sympathy through sad tales. You could be one of those.
Anyway, if you're genuine, and keenly interested in programming, how come you've not been able to make any progress in that direction? You have a feature phone, but you could go to the cyber cafe and research programming? etc. You could be inching ur way into the field. You could have laised or sought mentorship from those who've been into it already, instead of just assuming, money is the issue.

It is not just programming; we are also to undergo some engineering software training which I think can't be learnt alone. You would need the buy original software with keys which one can't afford alone. Some of this software run into hundreds of thousands, that's why we have to go through this group of tutors who have already bought the software.

Yes sir, you are right. My statement can't be verified. It is impossible for anyone to prove that I truly intend to learn programming or not. It is an emotional thing; a matter of conviction. The only way I can "prove" my case is by making my plea as convincing as possible.

I have been reading up some programming via html pages, but they are too few and not illustrative enough. Also cyber cafes are not cheap. I doubt i can learn much about NEBOSH, GAMBIT et al in 30 mins in a cafe which has none of the software. smiley

ok. Hope you achieve your goal. If you want it that way, fine. But to learn programming on the cheap, they're cheaper alternatives, but it will require more motivation and discipline from you.
Not one to tell you what to do, but I looked up nebosh, it is a certifying body based in the u.k.
For software development, you dont need no expensive 100k+ software.
Maybe they're trying to teach coding and something else.
If it's software engineering, their trying to sell you, as a noob, it's too early for that.
You must first learn coding first.
If they can teach you and you can deliver in that 10 weeks period- great. You got value for your money.
Else, you got no real returns and just got conversant with some buzz words and stuff enough to continue
learning on your own. Some of these bootcamps are like that, they get u familiar but not so deep others
get you enough to production level, but you will still be a noob and need to work under a supervisor.
For now,it's hard to tell.
But, there's one rule, you can apply, if you dont have the money, chill, another opportunity will come by.
Goodluck though.

if you mean programming language, I started with java but it would seem overwhelming for noobies.
You can start with python, a relatively simple easy to learn programming language.
Or if you can brave it start with java itself. Start with java 8,if you want. Why i recommend java is that,
or c#, it will discipline you to write well. And then jumping back to python will be easier.
- download java ebooks
- download java compiler
- get an editor and or ide
- get a computer,
- begin learning.

for python:
- download python
- download python ebooks
- get an editor
- get a computer
- start learning and doing

- also check out some youtube videos.

an alternative to java can be c#.

We're experiencing a functional trend now,
if you want to try functional programing,
you can lay hands on a functional language and go from there:
try clojure:
get the compiler
get books
get computer
go

or try, scala
or try haskell.

but to be on the safe side, you can first try the oop (i.e object oriented languages ) first: java, python, etc
before the functional ones.
The oop languages sell here. But in the future, some innovators may want people will functional skills.
Your biggest hurdle if you try this approach is getting a computer. Solve that problem, then we can see what to do about the next step.
There areas in this field: mobile programming, web designing, desktop programming.
I am assuming that you're interested in general programming (desktop programming),
or that you're testing the waters to know where to go next.
Web development will require another set of procedures. But for now, if u're confused , just follow the desktop programming route, as you become more conversant with the field, you'll know what to do next.
Cheers!

Bro I have been in your shoes before.

But sorry to say Nairalanders are stubborn set of people to ask this favour from.

You would just frustrate yourself.

Well I thank God for my life now.

The solution I would give you is to remember your family.

Ask your brothers or sisters or any relatives.

M sure they are waiting for you to ask from them.

Good luck

Ok here's my advice again:

Look for a job to do maybe work in a cafe or something.

Gather up ur salary while at the same time you have access to their computer and internet to learn.

Do self learning for a month and two.

If your salary adds up, you can get a system then

God would help you. Forget that programme for now and hustle first. When the tools and knowledge is gotten, then you can invest in other programmes. So, hustle more bro. It would be fine.
