new to coding

hello guys, i am new to coding and have joined a computer science course in an engineering college.i wish to learn coding and since i have no background in coding and am very passionate about it, i hope you guys can show me the right direction.


P.S. my professor is too hell bent on sticking to the syllabus and considers me as a dumb guy. so taking her help is out of the question. big_smile

Re: new to coding

What language are you learning?

Re: new to coding

C++ will probably be all you will ever need.

Re: new to coding

Hi Gourish;

I hope programming becomes a rewarding activity for you and you gain various insights about life from it.

i hope you guys can show me the right direction

Let me know what I can help you with but the best thing I can tell you is that one learns coding only by experimenting.

Re: new to coding

i am learning C from my class but it's only theory and simply programs. i was planning on making games on C or  C++ (most of the syntax is same for both, so i can change simple codes). but i do not know how to begin, are there any sites which can help me out?

Re: new to coding

I do not think that the programming of games is simple. First, you should learn the language thoroughly, then do the games.

True but everybody can still do some of that. Also, learning and coding is a concurrent process.

I agree with Gourish's idea of having a strong motivation to learn by having a project in hand.

but i do not know how to begin, are there any sites which can help me out?

Probably many. Have you decided what kind of game you're willing to make?

Re: new to coding

Learning and coding maybe concurrent but there is no time as well spent as looking through the list of commands.

Re: new to coding

Hi;

What is a module in programming?

Re: new to coding

Hi;

Generally I think it means a small part of a program. It means a bit more in M. Did you mean Modular Programming?
