I started off with java at 15. My first love was Andriod dev. But my 1gb ram lappy couldn't run Andriod Studio. I had no direction then, I jumped from php to c++ to Javafx framework. Nothing to show for it apart from command line based apps.
I ported to python.
Am 18 now. And I use django framework.
Stack is HTML, CSS, Js, python.

Edit

I learnt nearly half of that with my Mobile phone and I built my first django powered app with my mobile phone. See screenshot below.
Some guys won't just do their due diligence. You mobile phone is a s powerful as your PC.
Why do you think it is called a mini computer?
I know of a guy who built a chat bot with his Andriod. I mean an A.I chat bot just like JARVIS but a mini version of it.
PS am not saying having a system is not important. Of course there are some limitations of a mobile phone. The only problem I have is with people who have Mobile phone but keep giving excuses of not starting to learn programming due to not having a system.

Respect sir. I am loyal. Can I text you?? If yes then your number sir

But phones don't have good debuggers and debugging is as important as coding.

I realized many people want to learn to code but either don't know
Which language to pick or
What to do with it or
If they are going to benefit from it in the nearest future. IT"S UNDERSTANDABLE.

I recomment Python. Why?
Very Easy to learn - yes VERY
Very Versatile - you can use it for many purposes (web, apps, AI, ML, DS, etc)
High demand for Professionals
Opportunities abound.

I am going to mentor and monitor a number of folks in this field (for FREE), give them projects and ensure they are certified if they are diligent enough. If you happen to be interested, message me on Whatsapp on +2348125990511.

Tell the person that if you are only expecting money from programming you are wasting your time. You must be an addict(love it) first before you can even think of coding. Or else you are wasting your time.


Sit down and be Talking about passion u have a point but what are u driven by ? What is the ultimate goal ? be successful !

If u are sitting down u are on a long thing.

Ive build AI apps for top companies in Europe and yes i went for the money. Im only motivated by how much i will make. If u are coder companies are looking for u. Have the skill be it for money or motivation.

How does the code speak for u ? Looking at it run after hours of debug or your Account?

My brother i went for money and yes i made it !

If u can code in the western world u go know say passion for sitdown for somewhere when money come.

As long as you want to. But it will be best to ask: how long will it take to understand PHP basically. Yeah. You only need to understand, you won't learn everything. That shi*t was released in 1994 and since then, improvement upon improvements. After understanding it basically, then you can delve as far as you want, if at all that s what you want.

But back to the time it takes, I would say: there is no set time. As you live, you love, you do it.
Cool... But as a pro that you are, how long can it take a beginner to understand php and work without limitations

Well it depends on what u want to focus on. From my own experience

Java, Java script for web development

C,C++ mainly for microcontrollers, embedded systems, Advanced vehicle control systems(adas)

Python for artificial intelligence, data science, which can be used for adas and others..equally simple
Now when u know python and AI u are ready for the next best thing FACT.

Nb i learnt python on my own for an average guy like me then its easy although i have Background in JAva and c++
Yh. I know .
Learnt Python already. Java and C++ was taught in my school (peripheral though).

I would love my 9yr old to start learning.
Pls advise online resources he can use as a beginner.
Thanks
The best thing you can do for him is to enroll him into a school where they train little kids on programming. He is way too little to go the self learning way.
But if you want to go ahead then you can try YouTube videos. Channels like the new Boston, Traversy Media, Euderka and free code camp is good to start off with. W3schools and tutorial point is good too for text based tutorial.
But I recommend you enroll him into an it school. He will learn faster that way.
My 2 cents.

A lot of people think they are too old to start programming while others think they are too small when asked to learn to code

The Question is, AT WHAT AGE DID YOU STARTED PROGRAMMING? you could mention your first tech, how it went then and your experience now.

Let's inspire one another

You have to love it first before you go far. Bill Gates had a passion for it look where he is now, Mark Zuckerberg had a passion for it look where he is now, Steve Jobs had a passion for building electronics look where apple is now real truth is that when you enjoy what you are doing only then can you make real money real passion creates a real drive.
