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.

What language are you learning?

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

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.

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?

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.

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

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

Hi;

What is a module in programming?

Hi;

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