You got yourself a fancy computer, watched few videos on how to become a hacker over night , learnt some HTML and Java script from a website . Join Anonymous, Voila! Hack NASA.

If that’s how coding is going to be “we all are living a dream baby”

But Rather the beauty on the field of computing lies in a bit of sacrifice and dedication. No one becomes successful overnight, even the success stories you’ve heard are immensely misleading. The overnight success stories shows only the part where the person became successful, as the great legend Michal Jackson says NOT the hard work, dedication, sacrifice behind that persons labor.

“A lot of people are so used to just seeing the outcome of work. They
never see the side of the work you go through to produce the outcome.”
— Michael Jackson

Starting Small

As Human beings be tend to expect fruits of our work as soon as we plant the seeds. So we aim higher and start somewhere that’s absolutely overwhelming for beginners. And we measure success in terms of the huge workload we put forward and not those small steps towards success. It’s good to work hard and passionate , but the vital part is to continue that passion until you reach the goals and overcome the milestones from success and failure alike.

As all good things we master it’s advised to start and learn the fundamentals in computing too. Rather than blindly typing out some code and expecting some results it’s always better to see the bigger hidden picture from the start via practical knowledge.

“If you work on something a little bit every day, you end up with
something that is massive.”
— Kenneth Goldsmith

Coding Camps

One of the Best places to learn the fundamentals of coding is code.org (Learn today, build a brighter tomorrow. | Code.org)

A website built to teach the most basic fundamentals and their functions in real-time activities. This might look very primary level as if its built for kids in pre-school. But the best mentality we should posses when learning something is to think we do not know anything. And for people who want to start from scratch this is one of the most recommended places to start.

Teaching the most basic ideas of coding and giving a chance for us to actually experiment the functions of each and every code we write practically in a platform made so that it does not look vastly exhausting and complicated.

That would be simplest idea of the website cord.org .

Express Course(2020) Code.org

By engaging in the Express course Code.org has to offer we can learn,

  1. Sequences
  2. Loops
  3. Conditionals
  4. Functions
  5. Variables
  6. Sprites , And get a chance to see the functions of each of these topics practically.

“No one is going to give a damn about your résumé; they want to see what
you have made with your own little fingers.” -David Carr

And a certificate is also awarded when all the given tasks are completed.

No one becomes a master overnight. Let’s begin small and improve along the way. To be continued..
