How to learn programming(short explanation)

So you want to learn how to program but don’t know where to start? Look no further, I’m here to help.

First off, you got to learn the syntax. You need to know what is used for what and where.

After all those tutorials you finally know the syntax right? Yeah, so start programming.

Pick a project you want to build, it can exist or you can have your own idea. Start building, you will start knowing what you need to ask so you google it. Most answers will be on stackoverflow though, great site.

I’m telling you right now, YOU WILL NOT LEARN HOW TO PROGRAM IF YOU DON’T START BUILDING REAL PROJECTS!!!!!!!

So go out there and build something. Because you will not find the answers if you type in “Learn how to program ADVANCED”. Nope, nope, nope, it won’t work. Build stuff, and than keep searching the little stuff you need to build your project.

Example, you’re building a twitter clone. You don’t know how to fetch data, hell you don’t even know where to store it. So you start searching and eventually you find out that you can use Firebase, then you learn how to use that. After that you learn how to fetch the data and put it into your app for display. And so on and so on.

It has been almost 2 years since I first started how to learn how to program. I’m actually working on my 3rd app right now, it’s going to be a social app. I’ll keep you guys updated on that though.

So I hope you guys kinda got it, this is my first article so don’t judge my writing skills lol
