Tip #1: BREAK UP CODING SESSIONS AND CODE EVERYDAY
Expert coders say muscle memory plays a major part in programming. When you are used to coding, you actually start to execute from muscle memory, even before you become aware of why you did so.
Now, wouldn’t that be AWESOME on so many levels?
Break up your coding sessions and consistently code till you master the language.
Braingroom courses are specifically broken down into bite sized sessions 20 MINUTE and segments along with quizzes to help you absorb the information easily.
Even if you are coding for just 20 minutes, do it everyday. And then slowly work your way up. In no, time your Python coding chops should be up there.
So code and apply. Rinse and repeat.
Tip #2: WRITE IT OUT
If your goal is to become a full-time developer, writing out and taking notes is extremely beneficial.
For one, interviews may involve the candidate writing out codes on their sheets or on a whiteboard. Choose courses that are created with the Indian student or job aspirant in mind so that you are able to fine tune your skills and apply it in real world.
Braingroom Python & Mongodb courses are full of practical inputs from Indian industry experts that give unique insight into this area that you cannot possibly obtain from books and youtube videos.
Writing out codes, figuring out which classes and functions you will need etc, can help you plan and structure the outline before you move on to the computer. This practice is great for beginners.
Tip #3: TAKE BREAKS
Coding can become strenuous if you skip your breaks.
Take periodic breaks to refresh your mind and to get a fresh perspective on the project you are working on. Breaks help with the frustration that comes with resolving bugs. Absorbing new information, following rules and strict logic, in general, consumes more energy than other mental activities, so it is important to unplug and recharge before carrying on.
Tip #4: DEAL WITH BUGS THE RIGHT WAY
Once you start writing complex programs, you will run into numerous pesky bugs. It simply is how it is. This should not become a source of frustration. Rather these are learning opportunities and treat them as such. Go through your code, break it up and see if each part works correctly is a good way to go about it. In general it is a fruitful practice to try and resolve the bugs yourself. A mentor or tutor can be a huge help with you are faced with annoying, persistent bugs. Braingroom courses come with weekly Q and A sessions with tutors where doubts can be resolved.
Tip #5 GOOD QUESTIONS MAKES A GOOD STUDENT
Ask the right questions, whether to yourself or to others.
If you have someone to review your codes, make sure you ask VERY specific questions. “There is no such thing as a bad question” but when it comes to programming, it is better to structure your questions in the right context.
Include the code you are working on, a traceback error message, and an explanation of the steps you executed that resulted in the error. This way, mentors or tutors need not recreate the issue and will help you resolve the conflict efficiently.
Our Braingroom tutors are available to clarify doubts and offer personal inputs during your weekly Prime Time session once you enroll in our online course. That way, you can practice hands-on applications, have your doubts clarified every week and get custom feedback.
Tip #6 CHOOSE A SINGLE RESOURCE AND STICK TO IT, TILL YOU MASTER YOUR BASICS.
Sometimes it is easy to accumulate several resources, books, free videos, blogs etc to learn from and then get lost in the process. Internet, especially youtube, is full of scattered resources that can be difficult to discern and choose from.
Therefore, it is important choose one or two comprehensive sources, that give you a 360 degree structured information and several application based assignments so that you can focus on what is important to get you going. You may then use additional resources from several places to reinforce your knowledge base.
#Tip 7 MAKE SOMETHING
Expert Python developers will tell you that in order to learn Python, you must learn by applying in real time. Doing exercises can help to an extent but the real test of strength comes when you build something using Python. For example
- Try to create simple calculator apps or simple games like tic-tac-toe, Black Jack , number guessing games etc.
- Understand data structures and how to access the web with Python.
- Choose your favorite algorithms and try to convert them into Python code.
The journey of applying and building is the difference between beginner coders and expert coders. To decrease your learning curve, you NEED to apply in real-time.
Braingroom courses offer several carefully curated assignments that help students to this end. Students also get unique opportunities in the form of internships with several tech startups in various fields across India. These internships offer such invaluable real-time learning experience, problem solving opportunities and speed up the learning curve involved with learning Python.
In addition, students get additional certifications from the startups that help boost resume and opens up new career opportunities at higher payscales.
