Need some Motivation. Here’s my story how I overcame the challenges
Whats the first thing that comes in your mind when you hear the word “Programming” ?
Many of us find programming to be a scary thing well i would say “yes” it is if you don’t try. Programming is really interesting and easy once you start spending time on programming. When I started programming I had no idea what to to.Our teacher started making an Hello World program in Java. On, that time my mind was blank and was thinking whats happening. Then weeks passed by and teacher taught us many more programs. In the 7 Week of the Semester I was still “blank” because I was not trying and the other people in class were way ahead of me and the semester exams were also approaching. At that time, Me and My friend were sitting in class at the back and lecturer was teaching on the projector.
And a junior lecturer was helping her. When he came to us (me and my friend) my friend asked him a question and we both were trying to understand what he was explaining but after explaining- “He told me that you don’t deserve to pass and you will fail”. That was the moment i felt like hell.Went home depressed as it was the first time someone had said so harsh words to me about my academics. Because I was good at academics from childhood and never failed a single exam the reason behind weak in programming was i was taking it too challenging and not putting some time in learning basics. So, those words were heart brooking.
So, I took that as a challenge and decided to challenge that guy I stopped going to college for a week and seat back home and spent most of my time in learning the basics, I learnt a lot about Java from Oracle and the Lecture notes. Since, my college use “Moodle” so I dont miss notes if I miss a lecture. I get them on my moodle account on the college. So, as i was saying i set back for 7 days and did only programming and learnt the basics. Then slowly I started learning more and more the key was the basics that i learnt in those 7 days.
I got 95% marks in my first semester final exams.From that time to this time i have never had problem with Programming.
Key to Learn Programming is Learn Basics
And that’s what the key was?
Too be good at programming is easy. Learn basics
The 1 thing I would recommend is learn basics.
