Venturing into a tech field often requires expertise or knowledge of a programming language, some may require 1 or several depending on the aspect you'll focus on(web development, machine learning, software engineering, etc.)
During my research on various programming languages and their uses I found similarities in the syntax used to write them, they may not be written in the exact format I.e word for word but as you gradually learn one you find the rest becomes easier to understand and apply when solving problems and challenges, in this article I'll be comparing some codes in 3 languages:
Brief explanation and differences
C language was one of the earliest high-level languages developed and still has some use today. It is used for building some operating systems, GUI's, and more. During my time of learning, I started with python and got stuck. Eventually, I came to the C language and took my time to understand it. Python became very easy to understand after that. C is a structural programming language.
As seen in the 3 languages they all have the format
The while loop takes a similar format
Another simple code that does the same thing, once the syntax of a programming language is learned, it becomes overall easier to learn the basics of every programming language, though it won't always be this way given that they are used and excel in different aspects of the tech industry, pick the best suited and it'll work out fine, and if your want to change your tech field, it'll be easier to get started on another tech track.
When learning a programming language, one of the most important steps is to be patient, you can't just start and stop today, some make learn in weeks, and some may learn in months, so take your time and practice challenges on sites like google kick start or hacker rank they will show you there is more than one solution to a particular problem once you learn and understand the syntax it comes naturally as English or your local language is to you, then get better and start working on real-world applications, as important as it is not to rush it's also important not to be too slow when you feel it's right, go for it, all the best, thanks for reading 😇take care and happy coding.
