These are the kind of topics Nairaland should place on FP, and not who is showing thigh, ass , boobs and so on.

These are the topics that will build the leaders with vision.

Seun pls more of these.

Hello there, my fellow programmers and aspiring , now let me ask you,

Why did you choose to become a programmer??


For me, i picked interest after watching the TV series Kyle XY and I've enjoyed the journey so far...

Aside many other things that made me develop interest, one that stood out was my belief to develop a predictive model that correctly predict baba ijebu numbers. And so far, has been challenging...even though I have come to know that there are awesome things you could do with coding.

but as for that one, I must crack am

There is no money anymore in individual programming.

That you're not making money does not imply others don't.
Create a product that can solve real life problems and watch the returns

Funny thing is my first language of competence was and still is Pascal. Learnt Pascal just when OOP was about to become the defacto programming mindset

I remember walking into the final exam from CSC108 (Programming I) straight from a nightclub and still made an A

Shout out to then Dr Katerina Papanicolaou who taught me Programming I and Mr Koufopavlou who taught Programming II and Data Structures. Best experience ever

philip0906:

1. Visit learnpython dot org and start with the basics--- start with HTML, CSS & bootstrap then move to Python and Ruby. You can also checkout freecodecamp dot org.

2. Use Youtube tutorials for visuals; Search for "learn python/HTML/CSS full course for beginners" any of the languages you want to learn...You can also check out & subscribe to Freecodecamp youtube channel

3. Sign up on meetup dot com...And select your city of residence. You will join over 5,000 Nigerians who are learning how to code with different bootcamps and learning events organised throughout the year.

4. Immerse yourself in this daily for 8 months...Then apply for Andela's learner or volunteer programs next year April/May

5. If you don't get the opportunity to join Andela, there will be other doors that will open for you (One of the pros of been a programmer)

6. Give yourself this time next year, you will be a self taught programming guru (You need atleast 11 months of intense self learning to be ready to take on very tasking jobs)

7. You will be spoilt for choice of jobs, no matter how little for a start (freelance, remote, contract or salary)...That's a guarantee
Hmmmm ,,,,

Hopefully it has changed from the rubbish of my day when you write algorithm on paper and that is all the actual programming you learn

Programming is awesome! Creating something from nothing that actually works and helps people is enough to motivate me. Aside the money anyway.
