rahxuls profile image Rahul ・2 min read

Programming language is not easy and not hard to learn but the way of learning is something that matter because if you learn the right way then you know the right way to do it. Here is my latest post on How to learn programming language in 3 Steps.


Step 1. Learning the Basics of your programming language

Find a well-known and rated book, follow it and write the code given as example. Ask yourself :

  • What did i learned the last time?
  • What was the purpose of the example and what the book tried to teach you?
  • What does this specific syntax means?
  • What is the purpose of this function?
  • What is the output of this example?

Study Plan:

Step 2. Beginning a Side Project

Half-way through the book (or when you fell ready), begin a small side project.

What side project you can build?

Build something small!

  • ToDo App
  • IMDB For eBooks
  • Convert to pdf app
  • Language learning

Step 3. Share your code and grow your credibility

Show your code to whoever can give you feedback. Having a mentor is best!

If you're beginner you need to get a bit familiar with git.
Install git on your system and create account on GitHub . Then, push your project.

This is especially useful if you're planning to find your first job as a developer.
