Web Developers In Nigeria, How to become one
I remember when i was learning how to program, i was resilient, dogged, always pushing to get the concept, and at the same time you will need to learn how to be patient while learning it. I had friends who attended classes and became programmers, i loved how the web works and this increased my curiosity to learn it and this has exposed my mind to the opportunities that web development creates. Below i will give you a guide on what you need to learn first before you delve into any language.
What you need to learn first to become a web development.
First step is to learn the basics of programming which are HTML and CSS.
What is HTML: HTML simply means Hyper Text Markup Language. This language of the web creates the skeletal background of the website that you intend to create. You will first need to learn and understand this concept before you proceed into more advanced language.
What is CSS: CSS simply means Cascading Style Sheet. In a simple understanding of what CSS means, it gives the HTML structure that look and feel that the website needs to get that appeals to the the user of the website.
Things you need to do while learning programming
- Get a mentor: get someone whom you look up to and will guide you in the right steps while learning how to program.
- Get into a forum and learn about things you find difficult to solve.
- Get resources online for example youtube where there are tons of learning materials or solution to solve problems.
- Get a team of developers in your circle of friends.
- Carry out personal projects: this will enable you to understand the concepts of programming better.
- Avoid distractions: I understand that a lot of us have things that could distract us while learning like mobile phones, TV and so on. This must all be turned off while you are learning web development.
- Do not fail to practice daily: i know we all are busy and this is one factor that keeps us away from learning how to code. Make it a habit to learn daily even if it is for 10minutes daily.
- Do not assume that you know it already. Keep been curious.
