FahBuLous:You’ve asked this same question like 2 times in two weeks. Someone answered your question and you seemed to be satisfied with it.
If you want to start coding, you get to business and start writing code.
To answer your questions though
1. I wouldn’t say coding is hard. It depends on how you look at it. You would get frustrated from time to time.
2. I wouldn’t say “good”. Getting comfortable to be able to build projects using code should take between 1 and 6 months depending on how consistent you are.
3. What are the things you need? Budget like $10 for an introductory course for a start, a laptop, quality internet (and maybe food lol)
4. Online. You don’t have to meet anyone to learn or go to any “school”.
6. Are you sure of being employed? Yes. If you’re good enough
7. It’s never too late
8. Frontend and Backend development.
- Start with HTML and CSS. Go to dribbble.com and implement as many designs as you can using HTML and CSS. W3schools is a good starting point
- Learn about responsive web design using Flex and/or Grid, MediaQueries. Work on more projects from dribbble. Clone your favorite websites and make them responsive.
Please tell me Nairaland is not one of your favorite website
You can spend 1 & 1/2 month on the above
- Learn about the DOM. Work on projects that involve you “manipulating the DOM”. Learn about APIs and try calling in some endpoints in your code
- Choose a Frontend framework like React/Vue. Understand it deeply and try to work on a couple of projects using your preferred framework. Try your legs in Redux (if you go with React), read about structuring projects properly. Read and read code on Github
At this point, you should be comfortable enough to land your first role as a Frontend developer
Some things I would like you to note along the line:
- It is tempting to pick up Bootstrap once you start learning CSS. Don’t. It’s not advisable
- You might be tempted to jump from language to language or framework to framework as a result of hype, Job posting, or anything. Don’t. Wait, learn one thing and stick with it until you are a master at it
- Read about git, understand its use and start pushing your code to GitHub from day 1
Wishing you the best in your tech journey

|Re: Dear Programmer In Nigeria: How Much Is Your Salary? by flyingpig: 3:00pm On Jul 17|
But i have a pressing issue
1. I want to set up a website where contents will be on animals, foreign policies, immigration, foods, education/research, health, sports, and have members share their views. Is what I need a blog or website?
2. Is legitimizing or monetizing a blog/website hard? What is the process that I can use to monetize it?
3. What is the average range of income for newly established website or blog? I see hundreds of blogs in Nigeria these days, most of them don't have comments or views, do they still generate money for the owners?
4. Is blogging/website still a lucrative venture? Too much competition and people are used to the famous ones only like nairaland and lindaikeji.
5. How much can it take to set up a blog and website individually.
6. Can i use a smartphone to operate my website or a blog individually ?
Thanks so much as you take time to answer my questions

Many programmers in Nigeria love to talk the big talk like they can program heaven and earth but funny I know a guy who is a well paid "software" developer but on the low he just searches for readily available code online and boom nigga dey cash out from those who believe programing is for geniuses ... Bros programing no hard but Nigerian code monkeys would rather mystify it to discourage noobs hence discourage overcrowding..
I saw a thread where one dude wanted to teach C# ...I know CSharp as that is the tool that I need to do my work... I followed carefully and it didn't take too long to see the dude as with most programing tutors ...was just giving them GIGO level training for noobs ...if I didn't know that shi already , hearing those terms alone will just discourage me once.
Then again Its good because if not they will not respect us and fear us when they see horse hay-gain.
|Re: Dear Programmer In Nigeria: How Much Is Your Salary? by vheckthor1(m): 2:25pm On Jul 18|
Franzinni:while some of those stuff are true, know that software engineering is more than code copying, those code copiers might be making money but they can't compete in big leagues of true programmers, they are flukes who can't solve problems on their own
|Re: Dear Programmer In Nigeria: How Much Is Your Salary? by thenaijacoder(m): 2:45am On Jul 19|
1. Programming isn't that hard if you are learning or doing it the right way.
2. It depends on what you are learning and how much you are willing to learn it. It should take about 6 months or more.
3. You could attend programming schools but better still there are lot of free tutorials and courses that teaches programming on the internet like Udemy, freeCodeCamp and others.
4. Like I said there are lot of places like Udemy, Codecademy, Oreilly Media, freeCodeCamp, SkillShare, Treehouse etc.
5. There are lots of careers under programming and you should know what aspect you want to pursue.
6. Certain. You just have to know what you are doing and have good amount of experience on it.
7. It is never too late to learn programming. I have seen people who learnt programming at age 39 and got a job the following years.
8. Frontend , Backend, Cloud, Database and Software Engineering development

please I have been observing your comments and I most say u encourage ppl a lot...I'm currently studying sociology but scaling how Nigeria is ..I don't have a hope with my course.I've realised I have this flame for programming but I am scared that because I didn't do further mathematics or rather I will say because I don't like maths that I won't be good in programming.
(1)Do one really need a knowledge in mathematics bfor venturing into programming.
(2) is a knowledge of engineering important.
(3) can one really be good at programming without having any form of physical tutor.
(4)what and what are the tools are needed to start and how much will it take me to gather the tools including laptop *pls I'm still a struggling, hustling student oo*
(5)do tech firm require educational certificates wen considering employing workers .
(6)how long will it last if I go to a tech college and do u know how much they charge?
(7)ah bros life hard normal..been a Nigerian makes it harder..it is said that been a Nigerian makes one handicapped automatically..how much does a programmer earn in Nigeria here .
(I will like to know u better. can I send u a mail?
if yes can I have ur email address.
|Re: Dear Programmer In Nigeria: How Much Is Your Salary? by zone51: 8:18am On Jul 23|
Learning programming is one thing, making use of it is another thing. It's what you do with it that will determine how much you earn, no fixed price.
Danny Okec, the owner of realnaps.com learnt programming few years back and channel his energy to automating vfl strategy that he knows and he's making hundreds of millions from it today, he is not working for anyone, he works for himself and it pays off.
Timi Ajiboye, the owner of buycoins.africa & send cash.africa dropped out from Unilag according to him, his platforms have transacted hundreds of millions of dollars over the months and you know, more transaction, more commission for him.
Seun Osewa, the owner of Nairaland "left" OAU in his final semester with a first class CGPA, but see the money he's making today.
So the bottom line is, it's what you do with the language you learn that determines how you are paid.
Meanwhile, I received the notification that you have been trying to message me, unfortunately, I don't use the email again, can't remember the password.
Let us talk here.
|Re: Dear Programmer In Nigeria: How Much Is Your Salary? by Jxmmi90(m): 8:50am On Jul 23|
OK sir....I will like to have a one on one close conversation with u though...
can u pls enlighten me more about programming and its components and tools ..
I want to know what it takes to be a programmer sir..
what I will need and the duration
|Re: Dear Programmer In Nigeria: How Much Is Your Salary? by oweniwe(m): 9:00am On Jul 23|
This is Nigeria. If you're not based in state capital or major town, no light at all
|Re: Dear Programmer In Nigeria: How Much Is Your Salary? by ProfAmaben: 9:19am On Jul 23|
Yes o, it's quite unfortunate but coding doesn't understand that issue. Every second, a new technology is coming out and you have to keep practicing and getting proficient in the one you already know. Sad reality.
|Re: Dear Programmer In Nigeria: How Much Is Your Salary? by zone51: 11:41am On Jul 23|
Programming can simply be defined as the art of giving instructions to computer to carry out various functions at any requested time either monitored or not.
There are various instructions (programming languages)tailored to suit different functions
|Re: Dear Programmer In Nigeria: How Much Is Your Salary? by Jxmmi90(m): 2:14pm On Jul 23|
OK sir...what are the basics...I don't have any qualification in mathematics neither is my area of study .I'm currently studying sociology will it have any effect on me learning programming
|Re: Dear Programmer In Nigeria: How Much Is Your Salary? by Etinosa1234: 5:45pm On Jul 23|
|Re: Dear Programmer In Nigeria: How Much Is Your Salary? by zone51: 7:24am On Jul 27|
No it won't affect you, the basics is your determination to learn. There are enough videos on Udemy, Edx & Coursera that will help you start.

|Re: Dear Programmer In Nigeria: How Much Is Your Salary? by pcguru1(m): 8:21pm On Jul 27|
FahBuLous:A year or 2 because I was reading everyday for 2 years , I held myself back from applying , do a mini project and start applying from there. No do todo app o, build something reasonable and it will be easy convincing employers.
