rajilsaj1893ySelf taught at college when studyig a differentfield ; began doing websites with HTML / CSS , PHP CMS theme building (drop out school) and found a job as a Java programmer where I learnt more on Android...now Working as a software Developer and learning MEAN Stack this month (new challenge) I Dream to be a Full Stack ....and later Create a Dev Startup
I was sent to a computer class in a place that my father's friend used to own. I was given a discount on the fee. I was the youngest of all the students in that class, I think I was 11 or 12. People used to look at me in aww when I used to finish my programs first and then used to improve them so much so that sometimes the teacher had to look at it twice to understand. My love for coding grew. I never went to a programming class after those 2 months but it changed my life forever. Today, I not only build apps and websites, I teach 5000 students how to build those just in the same way I learnt that.
My two cents to a beginner: Don't restrict yourself to languages. Languages come and go, logics and concepts stay.
I started at school with pseudocode, then at University with C, Visual basic, Java and more. I learned C# at work and know I write better code because of code maintainability reads (and you know, implementation at work).
