How to Learn Coding Faster

We have various experiences.

Is Software Outsourcing thedevil?

If you’re a newbie coder, or you are a veteran programmer trying to learn a new language, you have to grapple sooner or later with your learning curve. Everybody has a different learning curve. We all come from diverse backgrounds. We have various experiences. All this has an impact on how fast and how effectively we learn.

Learning coding is actually pretty simple because a lot of the coding languages now have been so stripped down and so enhanced that we no longer have to worry about fundamentals. I mean, if you and I got into a time machine and went back 30 years, and we’re trying to learn a programming language; we would end up in a math class. Seriously. Because that’s what the professor would talk about. It’s all about fundamentals. It’s all about logic.

However, we live in the Mark Zuckerberg age. We live in the Facebook age, and nobody has time for that. Accordingly, we jump straight to objects, and the best part to all of this is that these objects are explained so clearly that as long as you think in a logical way, you can learn quite a bit in a short period of time. In fact, by zeroing in on just the right objects and learning how to piece them together, you can come up with an elegant piece of code in no time. So, how do you speed things up?

First, give yourself a deadline. Maybe it’s 15 minutes; perhaps it’s 20 minutes. The deadline is all about learning a particular concept behind the object. Once you do this, choose to focus on the object fully. Understand how each part leads to the other part and how it ultimately leads to a desired result. By keeping the end in mind, you can shine a bright light on how the process works, and this prevents you from being confused.

You force yourself to look at whatever code you’re putting together in terms of a Big Picture. Once you have the broad outlines mapped out, you then piece everything together. The gaps stand out. This makes putting it all together so much easier and faster.

It also helps if you ask whoever is instructing you for samples. Nothing makes things clearer than seeing the actual code in operation. If you see the tangible result of what the code is supposed to do, then you would be able to tease out the logic behind the operations. Once you have the logic, you can easily figure out everything else.

Think Outside theProject Specs

When you think about the project specifications, you start looking at potential applications. You start looking at the end results. Once you’re able to do this, then you would be able to figure out existing modules that you already know and start plugging them in. In terms of existing relationships between these modules, you can start modifying. If you do this, you realize that it’s like playing music. By only learning a few chords, you can actually play a wide range of music.
