Here is a quick list of tips that I think can help new computer programmers. Hope you find this useful!
Tip # 1 : Put the Time In
Learning to program is frustrating, especially if you are trying to teach yourself. Unfortunately, there is no secret to learning how to code quickly. The only way to learn is through trial and error. You just have to stick with it and enjoy the process!
Tip # 2 : Use Resources
When first learning the basics it can seem impossible to remember all the syntax and commands. But luckily, there are some very useful websites and forums. Checkout : Stacks Overflow, Github, and Geeksforgeeks
Tip # 3 : Take a Break
Just like it is important to put the work in, it is also important to step away for a bit. Trying to cram or rushing the process of learning is not good and can lead to creating bad habits in the being stages of learning the basics. Take learning in small consistent steps
Tip # 4 : Have a Project in Mind
The best way to tackle learning the basics is to have some sort of project or app you want to build on mind. It helps you focus on learning individual task working towards a goal rather than in random chunks.
Games, Calculator, Hangman, Quiz, PoS, Calendar, Note Pad
Tip # 5 : Reach Out
The internet is full of very helpful and skillful programmers. Don’t be afraid to ask questions and connect with others. Mentioned in the previous step, Stacks Overflow is a good place to start. You can post questions and errors you come across
