How Do You Learn Computer Programming Quickly?

How Do You Learn Computer Programming Quickly?

If you don’t have a job as a programmer and want to learn fast, focus on active learning with lots of practice. Here is the path I recommend you take to fast-track the process: 1) Start with targeted, interactive lessons — short sessions of introductory and passive learning. 2) Passion projects — spend the bulk of your emphasis on longer sessions of challenging, passion-driven side projects.
3) Aim for things that you like to do or that will make your daily obligations easier. 4) Bring along a mentor or pay a freelancer to guide you. They will provide feedback and help you throw out lousy coding habits. Supplement with other sources to fill in the gaps. 5) Keep repeating steps 1 through 4 while applying for entry-level programming jobs.
6) Enroll in a short, targeted, software development path.
