Basics of programming

As a beginner, the theme of programming often seems mysterious. It is difficult to get an idea of what may resemble the methods and programming tools or coding when no experience. Learning to program is a considerable challenge, especially if one expects to learn by himself for his own project. We summarize what you’ll need to make your learning coding, commands, and scripting language to be successful.

Programming for Beginners: preparation:

Anyone who wants to learn a programming language needs a lot of documentation. Reading forum topics and books is the first step. Thanks to careful reading, one can acquire the necessary knowledge bases. Each programming language has its discussion forum. Thus, most of the imaginable questions have already been asked and users have probably also provided an answer, or at least attempted. If you can not find a satisfactory answer, you can ask your own question to the large community of programmers. Write down the important information that will help you in the initiation phase. A clear personal database with interesting notes will help you solve your problems in the future.

What are the programming languages?

Much of your research and preparation needs to involve discovering the different programming languages and finding the one that is most appropriate for your project. The most known and used are:

  • Java
  • C
  • C++
  • C#
  • Objective-C
  • Python
  • Visual Basic .NET
  • PHP
  • JavaScript

The complexity of these languages is variable: some are indeed more difficult than others to master. You must always keep in mind why you want to learn to program. Would you like to design websites in the future? Would you rather program a microcontroller that would serve you on a daily basis (in your car for example)?
