I'm learning web development, to an extent, I Know HTML and CSS, but it's like every time I look, there's always something I'm yet to learn. I feel like it'll take me up to 10 years to be proficient.

I checked a thread and I was seeing strange languages; ReactJs, Native, Kotlin,e.t.c

I've been in this industry for a good number of years and I can tell you that feeling of doubt never leaves. So it's a normal thing.

When you say you know HTML and CSS to an extent, do you mean if I give you a random design right now you'll be able to code it from scratch?

Programmers in the house, Goodday all

I'm a newbie to the world of programming and will love to learn programming, my interest is in web development.

Which language(s) should I start from?

I just signed up on udemy, I heard python can easily be start with, I later saw that for web dev, it's preferably to start with HTML, I need advise on which to start with.

Lastly, due to financial constraints, can I start learning using a mini laptop or what should be the minimum specs of a laptop I should get to start with?

Thanks

Very important not only to learn some programming language but to set up a proper mindset to understand, that coding is just a problem solving tool for the end-users. Thus, learn more about ux redesign process to ideate how to make your favorite tools better, and then ideate on how to act so using coding skills.

Good day sir, I am also a complete beginner in programming, how do I start? I have a hp 15... Also, sir, I called up a few computer institutes today to inquire about Software Engineering, sir, I must say the prices are; God have mercy (I'm looking for less than 100k) Please sir, what your advice on other courses I can apply for as I don't have enough funds for the Software Engineering? Thanks so much sir, I am looking for a tutor, too, if you are too busy sir, can you refer me to a computer institute (I want be certified). I am based in Lagos sir. I anticipate your response soonest. Thanks once again sir.

My advise will solely depend on knowing what branch of Software Engineering you're interested in. You don't need to bother yourself about any institute, YouTube is the only teacher you need right now, everything you want is there.

Sir, the fact is, I don't even know any branch of software engineering, I chose software engineering cause from the little I read, it covers all or rather major programming languages.

I will follow your advice on YouTube, but sir, what do I start with? Which programming language do I start with? Thanks a lot sir.
Re: I Want To Learn Programming. Which Language Should I Start With? by Bossman(m): 6:21pm On Apr 20
I would suggest Java. The key thing is to learn the core principles of Software Development, regardless of language chosen. The language is just the tool to get the job done. However, once you learn the concepts very well, using Java, for example, you should be able to move to another programming language with minimal effort.

Re: I Want To Learn Programming. Which Language Should I Start With? by wiselong: 10:28am On Apr 22
Dear all,

I need advice on the below issue

I was contacted by an organisation to develop a custom web application for their Employee Management system. They mentioned to me that it would be hosted online and they already have a hosting server. According to them, I will be managing the application after development but my concern is how do I protect my source codes from being used by another person since I don't have control over their server? (Note, what they are buying is the solution, not the source code)

Also, they mentioned that along the line they will engage other developers who will have access to the database schema am developing for their solution. The essence of this is to allow the other developers to create other solutions for staff using the same database as the data model.

How do I execute this project completely without the application being compromised?

Thank you

Hello
Please, can anyone recommend any material for
javascript for me. I know the basics like strings, number, variable, function, date event and so on but of all the code I have learnt, I haven't come across any material that contains how to use those code for web development. All tutorials on youtube teach the same things.

Hello good evening sir.
Am a student and need a source of income for me since things are really hard nowadays, and I have considered coding, read in a website that one can make cash through it. I have 3 questions regarding this
1. What is the best option? coding or programming?
2. As a student who has to make money to cater for himself, when I learn programming, how can I monetize it? will firms, companies, organizations demand for my services despite still being a student?? and what aspect of programming is the best bet for quick assimilation, shorter time frame to master, and lucrative job or wise?
3. Which aspect of programming do you think I should start with (I don't have a laptop).

Due to the numerous "i want to start programming, which language should i start with" threads on this board i decided to create a thread that will address this issue. I am not a wonderful writer and i won't say i know it all but i will try. I urge every one on this board to correct me where i err an also contribute in whatever way you can to make this thread worth it. I will try as much as possible not to be biased in this write up.

I am not going to go into detail in defining what programming is because i will assume before entering this thread you should already know what programming is. But in summary programming is the act of creating whatever you want with your brain and computer programming is the act of creating whatever you want with your brain and a computer. You can read more from

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Computer_programming

Programmers could also be called software programmers, software developers and other big-big names you can think of.

Feel free to ask your questions, i will try and answer the ones i can my Ogas in the house will help me with those i can't answer

Please every Programmer should try as much as possible to check on this thread once in a while to help answer some questions Newbies would like to ask.
start with yourba language
