What to know before you start learning programming or computer science
Succeeding in tech has nothing to do with how smart you are; it has everything to do with how persistent you are.
Everything in this field is cumulative. Each topic you learn will build off of prior topics. That’s what makes it challenging.
Be sure to start at square one. If you don’t have a background in tech, you’ll want to start by learning the fundamentals of computers and studying the basic terminology.
You’re going to have to learn a lot of tough topics and you’re not necessarily going to comprehend them all on your first try. Accept this fact. In those moments, you need to be conscious of your own comprehension.
Constantly check in with yourself and reflect on whether the topic you’re studying makes sense to you. If it doesn’t, don’t jump ahead! Try going back over the prerequisite topics to see if something didn’t make sense.
The absence of comprehension can be frustrating but don’t let that get you down.
Comprehension should be your end goal, not your immediate expectation. If you still find yourself stuck on a particular topic, go through your learning materials and outline all the important terminology, definitions, and examples. Commit those to memory. Use flash cards or write out the terms and definitions repeatedly until you can recite them by memory. Comprehension takes time. Memorization is the next best thing after comprehension.
