Yes. You can.
How do I know?
I do the same thing.
It's hard to get time in for it. But it's all about determination. I've finished learning all about the Heap just today.
You can do it bruh.

I feel good reading that man.
I guess I'm what you could call an advanced beginner... I'm doing C++.
I've always wanted to code, I was coding BASIC back when I was 8, but it didn't interest me. I was a kid, it was only natural. Now I wanna get real serious with this. Plans are to hop on Cocos2d-x and use that to make Android games. My brother is ahead of me in that regard, and I am ready to follow up with it.

My goodness thats one good thing you could ever do
learning both and then integrating programming to optimize your medical praction
But i think the question should be on How..
|Re: Can I Learn Medicine And Practice Coding At Same Time by Nobody: 11:41pm On Nov 26, 2015|
Are u sure programmers earn more than doctors? What evidence do you have for this?

Dapo777:I have said what I said, and I did mention professional programmers.

Ok boss. Anything u say is right.
|Re: Can I Learn Medicine And Practice Coding At Same Time by Nobody: 8:01pm On Nov 27, 2015|
One of my dreams, to use my medical knowledge in helping people through programs

I disagree with dhtml18.
I'm sorry but you won't be good with both. The programming universe just doesn't work that way, maybe after you've graduated and don't want a job in the hospital then you can focus on being a good programmer?
Why do people get so bias like that? Well this is the truth, people will only encourage you because that's what they also want to believe.
Programming is not just a thing you can just learn and pick up just like that, its not some rubbish, it requires years of practice just like medicine, programming is a science, it's also an art... I agree some noobs on here have made programming look cheap and a anybody can learn thing, but programming is not the same as coding or developing (which sometimes require you to use existing codes that was programmed by someone else), i don't know if you grok my concept, but if you were destined to be a programmer in the first place, you will rarely have a passion for medicine and you'll either study computer science or engineering.

When you say you disagree with me - on what point, i made a lot of points above.
But the most important one is the answer to the thread - YOU CAN LEARN MEDICINE AND PRACTICE CODING AT THE SAME TIME.
But when we are talking of working as a professional programmer and a doctors at the same time - that one is a story for the gods.
I DID NOT SAY THAT YOU CAN BE A MEDICAL DOCTOR PRACTICING CLINICAL MEDICINE AND A PROFESSIONAL PROGRAMMER AT THE SAME TIME!

Booyakasha:Says who? Who has made you 'the' authority on the limitations of each and every human being in the world? Different people have different affinities for different things and some people can be exceptional pilots, doctors, and programmers at the same time. A thing that holds true for one person does not mean it holds true for 'ALL' human beings.
Booyakasha:Programming is actually a thing you can pick up like that, this comment is extremely harmful and discouraging to aspiring programmers. What is so hard or cryptic about programming? I tutored software development for over 3 years and I have taken people of different ages, gender, and orientation (science, humanities etc.) from noob to pragmatic (solutions delivering) programmer in less than a year. Of particular importance is a young man in the company I currently work. He was employed into my team to interface between the developers and clients and help with client integrations, not only has he never programmed in his life, he majored in Business Administration, but I converted him into a developer and now I have him committing super clean code to our repo and all in under 6 months.
Booyakasha:It is never too late in life to change or learn a new thing, and there are things harder than programming that are still being mastered by anybodies.
Booyakasha:Erm! programming is actually the same thing as coding or developing, and I am yet to see a developer that builds everything from scratch. Everytime you use a library you are actually building off code written by others. It is often even beneficial to see how other's solved a problem because reading code (clean code) helps you as well.
Booyakasha:This is so not true. AT ALL! Humans are passionate about different things, I know I want to be so many things that for the sake of my responsibilities I have put on hold. I am yet to meet a programmer that is not passionate about other things as well as programming, and after a couple of years you might actually see something else to be more attractive.

jetsetgo:Stop being contradictive here, it will only make you look less intelligent, i am not the authority of everyone in the world.
Keep preaching to your own choir cos it makes you feel good about yourself.
But what you think programming is, is not what it really is. Keep being a code manager, code management is simple anyway.
PS: Programming is not same thing as coding, if you doubt this, then there's no point of educating you more... go back to being a shitty car dealer.
|Re: Can I Learn Medicine And Practice Coding At Same Time by jetsetgo: 7:15pm On Nov 28, 2015|
Booyakasha:You left yourself open to insults with the comment you just posted. But I refuse to condescend to the level you are obviously comfortable playing in. My abilities/skills as a software engineer (or code manager as you call it) is evident in my bank account. I don't need acknowledgement from you to feel good about myself.
Booyakasha:I doubt there is anything I am interested in that you could educate me about. I have an Advanced Diploma, PPL, Bachelors Degree, and Master's Degree in Software Engineering, I Studied Medicine for years before that, and I am a kickass superhero ninja programmer in over 5 Languages with years of experience and innumerable projects and references to show for it. If all you have been typing is the so called education, sorry I am not buying.
Read through my post, I don't throw insults at anybody, and I refrained from doing same here, so if you have been offended by anything I typed then all I can say is.... The truth is a bitter pill to swallow.

Y'all should keep calm and stop e-fighting . . . But without doubts, programming isnt the same thing as coding . . .
Just like the words "geek" and "nerd" . which might mean the same thing to outside individuals . . but to the people intended
their true definitions are miles apart . . .
A coder basically writes codes, build them, test and debug and deploy them using programs intended to make the job easier. . which were infact built by programmers and not coders.
Think of it, as coding being the easy step to becoming a programmer. While coding is just one aspect of programming, a true programmer has to pass through.
Sound complicated right?
|Re: Can I Learn Medicine And Practice Coding At Same Time by jetsetgo: 11:48pm On Nov 28, 2015|
When someone is programming what is he doing? Is it not writing code? typing code into his computer to make it do stuff? Na wa o!
issokay, i gree pastor, Jonah swallowed the fish, i yam wrong you are wright; let church close.
|Re: Can I Learn Medicine And Practice Coding At Same Time by Nobody: 12:11am On Nov 29, 2015|
Nairalanders! everything must degrade to e-fight!
|Re: Can I Learn Medicine And Practice Coding At Same Time by makavele: 1:22am On Nov 29, 2015|
You don't get it sir . .
Coding is just one part of programming a true programmer has to learn. . There are other herculean tasks ahead . . . in a programming environment. . . .
But you can actually learn coding , and stop there . . which is what, sadly, 90% of Nigerian "self-acclaimed programmers" are . .
Learn 1,2 3 or 8 languages and code with it . . . and it ends there . . .
Programming on other hand, doesn't end with just writing a school mgt software with PHP in Netbeans . . .using Laravel
It surpasses that .. Hope u get it now . .
|Re: Can I Learn Medicine And Practice Coding At Same Time by jetsetgo: 8:02am On Nov 29, 2015|
I yaff already agreed with you not because I think you are right, but because I wan't church to close so we can go home.
PS: I like how you respond, I wish more people on nairaland could be as objective as you are. You don't fight over your opinions. When I grow up I hope to be more like you.
|Re: Can I Learn Medicine And Practice Coding At Same Time by makavele: 2:03pm On Nov 29, 2015|
LOL, thanks for the compliment sir . .
Last time I checked, there was "freedom of speech and public opinions" . . .
The highest victories come from winning without fighting
|Re: Can I Learn Medicine And Practice Coding At Same Time by Booyakasha(f): 7:23pm On Nov 29, 2015|
makavele:That's my like there. 1Naira to you for being so knowledgeable, jetsetgo is a dick, but a knowledgeable dick, i get his point but he didn't even consider looking with my own eyes before calling me discouraging and wrong.
I hope you join our community @ my sig, we haven't finished yet though, i'm planning something great though
|Re: Can I Learn Medicine And Practice Coding At Same Time by makavele: 8:31pm On Nov 29, 2015|
thanks a millie
lol @ the bolded . . .
what r u planning ?
|Re: Can I Learn Medicine And Practice Coding At Same Time by Booyakasha(f): 12:08am On Nov 30, 2015|
makavele:To make the community bigger man... what features do you think can make a community more engaging?
|Re: Can I Learn Medicine And Practice Coding At Same Time by yungcheda(m): 11:34pm On Dec 05, 2015|
I wish to really know the difference between coder, programmer, developer and software engineer...peeps be making them look different but I see them as doing same thing
|Re: Can I Learn Medicine And Practice Coding At Same Time by GodMode: 8:10am On Dec 06, 2015|
They are the same thing don't mind all these noobs on NL
You can combine both but reduce your code learning to 1hr or 2hrs per day cos medicine requires hard work, care, focus e.t.c
Programming requires hardwork, focus, reading, testing, debugging, sitting and staring at your computer for long hours ,maintaining your sanity when your code doesn't work, more reading and testing to keep yourself updated cos programming languages always have updates. e.t.c
If you just want to make money then learn internet marketing.
|Re: Can I Learn Medicine And Practice Coding At Same Time by makavele: 8:30am On Dec 06, 2015|
^^^ As always said by a "self-taught" programmer
|Re: Can I Learn Medicine And Practice Coding At Same Time by yungcheda(m): 7:15am On Dec 10, 2015|
Even computer science students don't know the difference between a coder, a developer, software engineer and programmer... But they keep saying they are different with no real explanation
