I started my programming journey with Python. To begin with, there are two well known sources that one could choose from : i. http://www.codecademy.com ii. http://www.coursera.org. I chose codecademy as it is based on an interactive platform which makes learning quite simple. As a beginner to programming I could complete the Codecademy Python in two weeks. There are some tips from my experience:
- Its important to sharpen one’s memory and mathematical and logical skills. Lumosity is a good way to improve these skills.
- Chill, relax and catch good sleep at night. Yes, I know coding and gaming could be a bit addictive, but do sleep well.
- Be consistent. I liked a quote from lumosity.com, they display it when you play for longer hours in a single day “Training is a marathon, not a sprint. Come back tomorrow to challenge yourself again.”
