Growing up as a child I loved playing games, and have always have this question within me. Like how are games made? so as i grew up, got exposed to computers, from there I made researches and discovered that in order to create games you need to know how to program. As times goes by my passion for computer programming grew to the extent i have to create a blog https://tecckng.blogspot.com/search/label/programming?&max-results=8&m=1 to teach people how to program. I love programming is fun and more adventurous to see your programs come to life and control how people interact with your software. cool My favorite programming Language has been Java.

Personally, being a software engineer I had this passion for programming at the very beginning. There has been a lot of influencers personally and professionally and take up a career in programming and teaching programming to people who desire who learn and desire to make a career out of it. One of the Tableau training in Chennai from https://www.slajobs.com/tableau-training-institute-in-chennai/ changed a whole lot of things in my programming career and shaped my prospects good for life.

I choose it since I was in jss1 just because of the colour the notepad brings when coding then, but now I want to be an app and web developer.

but the journey is quite challenging because I only have a midrange phone.
I heard using a laptop is the best way to learn coding

It's simple, the desire to solve problems. I am a critical and logical thinker. Programming allows me to arrange solutions to a problem in a logical way. It allows me to think better and more comprehensively and meticulously. Forget about the technical jargons like syntax, language paradigms, data structures, debugging etc. If you're a good programmer, you're automatically a good thinker.

That's it. smiley

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
WORD!

Hello everyone..I am aspiring to be a full stack web developer..I have learnt HTML5 already and currently on CSS and python..
The new laptop I got has developed fault and it has destroyed completely .. someone bought it for me actually..coding with an android phone has been slowing down my progression because I am used to a PC...and the battery is not strong.As a matter of fact,it is not helping my progression..
I applied for #laptopfordevelopers on Twitter but I was not selected for the final stage..
If anyone here can help me with a spare or old/used laptop,I will be glad because I am not financially ok and I don't want my programming dream to be dashed away...
I live in Lagos State..

CS50 by Harvard University is the truth.

If this is how good their free courseware is, no wonder they charge a premium.

Ivy league is ivy league, abeg.
