Lesson 1 

 Ask yourself: why would you like to learn code?

Take a few minutes to think.

    Coding is a step-by-step process in which different computer programmes are designed and developed to achieve certain computer results. The process includes various tasks such as analysis, coding, generation of algorithms, precision controls and algorithm resource consumption, etc. The objective of computer programming is to find a series of instructions on a computer to solve a particular problem.

    If it is managed appropriately, computer programming is very simple. Many computer programming languages are available so it's not easy to finalise the correct programming language. If you want to learn how to code, it might seem like an awful or even intimidating task to take your first steps into this great universe. The big secret is here: There are lots and lots of free (and cheap) resources available to help you, teach you new techniques and make this learning process fun and exciting — at least as exciting as coding can be.

    Whether you are an adult who wants to move into technology, a students who are looking for the most up-to-date languages or a hobbyist who wants to understand just how software and services work, all you need is a computer and Internet to begin your programming journey. Before you hike into the Matrix, however, here are our best tips and resources to put you on the right foot.

    Ask yourself: why would you like to learn code?

    Take a few minutes (or a day) to think about the real reasons for learning a programming language. Be honest to yourself. Be honest. Do you try to learn the least possible to achieve a promotion? Do you want to change your career greatly? Would you like to build the next biggest app? Do your roommates want to do something awesome by programming your different intelligent devices?

    Your response can help you determine the language(s) of programming you should use and the type of commitment your objective might require (with time and money). You would benefit, for instance, from the formal computer science education that teaches you C++, as well as more complex topics, including data structure, algorithms and memory assignment, if you dream of creating the next great operating system or killer alternative to PhotoShop.

    Select the correct language for programming

    Once you understand why you want to code, it is easier to determine which language to programme you should use. Although no "best" language for learning programming is available, certain languages are easier to use than other languages. HTML and CSS is regarded as the easiest input to coding, but only for developing basic websites are they truly helpful

    You will need to know Javascript, PHP, SQL, and Python to sing all the components for more interactive websites involving payment systems or databases. For iOS apps and Java or Kotlin, mobile app makers use Swift or C. Developers of video games will turn to Unity or even C# to give life to their game ideas. Above all, something is just beginning to learn. Once the programming language is comfortable you can pick the next one so much faster, like learning a new musical instrument or foreign language.

    Test a few online lessons

    If your learning schedule is more controlled (or if you don't want to go alone), an online coding course could be a better option than an individual bootcamp. However, there are several different online classes which teach the same programming languages, which one is actually worth your time and money can hardly be discovered. Try to sign up for Udacity or Udemy subscription model courses to ask a tutor for help instead of having to face coding errors or questions. You can use codes from deals portals like Askmeoffers & CouponsABC to save some money on your learning subscription, they are free and easy to use.

    Concentrate on computer learning

    You can also learn to resolve a problem in a way that a computer understands in place of hyper-focusing on learning a specific programming language. That is, enhance your skills in terms of patterns, algorithms and abstractions. There is also lingo, such as loops, which you will use in any language. The more easy it is to learn the language, the more you understand these principles (and design better products or projects as a result).

    You are not required to enrol in a four-year college programme to learn the basics of computer science through the Internet; a certain number of college classes are available for free online (or a nominal fee). The best way to learn how to code is by being up-and-coming with dead trees—a true book that you can follow from start to finish. In a perfect world, you will be introduced to coding more comprehensively than to go through a theme on a website. You can probably find an e-book for any language or framework you try to learn about GitHub.

    Last Thoughts

    You can solve the same problem with multiple programming languages. However, you must choose a language which is relevant to your task. You can always move to a new language if you decide that a language does not satisfy your business needs. Your skill in the language you have chosen will be also decisive. Expected time of response for software systems, a number of concurrent users, security, maintenance, web compatibility, mobile devices and other elements to be taken into account when choosing one language.
