I am tushar student of 10 standard. I want to learn about coding I started with HTML and through which I found my passion for software development but is the right language because I don't want to excel in web development. Many people suggested me to learn about python should I learn that.
- Simple and easy to learn
- easy integration with different platforms and/ or languages - different use cases ie for data science, android development, software development etc
- free and open source with large user community - to get help on any queries
You can also later learn other programming languages such as Java, C++ etc. But usually picking one language as a starting point is good enough and then it depends upon the industry you go in and learn on the job.
HTML and CSS are the two of the core technologies for building web pages. HTML provides the structure of the page, CSS the layout, for a variety of devices. As a programmer, I suggest starting with Python. Overall, you should learn HTML before Python if you intend to make apps for the web because it's the fundamental building block for websites. However, for desktop or command line projects you won't use HTML so you can learn Python first.
Gabriela recommends the following next steps:
HTML is scripting language. Go with Python, java or C++
Lalitha recommends the following next steps:
1. Work with MIT App inventor (A visual programming interface) to understand the basic concepts of coding like variables, functions and all.
2. Python Foundation
3. Html and CSS for basic web pages
4. Java script
After that, you will understand the languages and their uses. You will be able to select your next core language learning like Game development, web development or testing.
Programming is not about learning multiple languages, it's more about understanding the algorithm. Keep focusing on algorithm and you will soon be an expert programmer!
