The Importance Of Github To A Programmer by JosephXavier: 2:03pm On Feb 13, 2021
I am just a newbie in programming but a friend of mine who is ahead of me told me how important it is to always upload every project I handle on GIThub account citing the following reasons

1. It helps in the future for appraisal : GIThub is a framework that is reciting by big Tech companies universally. So when you apply for a job, they may demand to access your GIThub account to see your precious jobs and to know how good you are. In a case where the person has no account or has no much work to show for it is a very big turn off and a red flag

2. in case you loose your works in your desktop : Nobody prays for something bad to happen but it is said that prevention is better
And in this case, since your works are stored their already, you can easily secure them back when you log into your GIThub account if the codes are stored their thereby you end up loosing nothing

3[b]In the case of malfunction of codes [/b]:
If for example you've formed the habit of saving your codes in GIThub, and you add another functionality to your code which malfunctions, you can easily backup your codes from the day it was functioning well instead of cracking your end and in some cases, spoiling the whole work,
This saves you time and is quite accurate

For me it’s a good way to store your finished or in production codes, also a good storage to come back to in the future to laugh at your ugly codes when you become a little bit better than the previous year.


It also gives you a reference as a programmer in your CV

Exactly because I built a software with python .
Though the Kristan is running perfectly well but my tutor complained about how mixed up the codes were

I decided to store them in my GIThub account and I k is that soon when I get better, I'll come back to also laugh at myself and also appreciate how good I've become

Your tutor complained about how mixed up your codes were

Is it not that you didn’t organize the code, did you use class in your implementation

Yeah so far you did not quit you will get better by the day as you continue coding. Are you really doing python?

I don't think python needs class or maybe it's because of how I was thought

Thanks also. I'm also planning buying a python course from w3school.com and also watch YouTube videos to help me improve

It's a good site mostly for beginners but you can't totally learn everything you want to learn from one source

Python is an oop language. I write all my codes in oop because it makes it clean and readable.

Alright sir, after python, what language can you recommend one to learn for cybersecurity?
