Why should you start learning to code?
There are plenty of reasons whey everyone should start learning to code at some point. Whether it is merely your passion or the fear of Robots taking your job, it makes all sense to start preparing yourself for the Jobs of the Future. Once, I convinced myself that I should learn to code, I began to search online to see where I should start? What is the best programming language for me?
What is the best approach to learn any programming language?
Being an engineer, my options were not limited. Programming languages such as C/C++, Python, Matlab, Mathematica were all great ones, but I couldn't learn them all. Fortunately, I didn't have to. Four years later, I came to the conclusion that learning one would be equivalent to learning other programming languages to a great extent. I realized that learning to code is actually nothing more than:
- Understanding the problem without making it more complicated
- Breaking the Problem into smaller parts so you could solve them once at a time
- Developing an easy solution to each step (Creating the Algorithm)
- Implement the solution
- Testing and Debugging your Code
Once these steps are mastered, you have already accomplished a lot. The rest is dealing with the programming syntax. If you ask any good programmer where to start, they would tell you just pick up any programming language, and once, you learn the basics of programming which are common for all, you are ready to learn the syntax of any other programming language in much shorter time. The only way I know NOT to be able to learn a programming language is by focusing on programming syntax first.
Why Matlab programming is one of the best options to learn programming fundamentals?
Matlab programming is one of the best options you have, to learn to program. It is very easy to learn, lots of learning resources, many vibrant communities, and more. It is a great point to start. On the other hand it is so powerful that NASA is using it for their Pluto mission. Using this programming language, you can learn start coding in a very short amount of time.
Best Approach to learn Matlab programming Fast
The challenging part in start learning Matlab programming might be a large amount of learning resources that might get you puzzled where to start. Not all learning resources are designed with beginners in mind. This made me frustrated when I decided to learn Matlab programming myself. Therefore, I decided to put together a comprehensive Matlab programming video tutorial that would take anyone without any coding experience, and turn them into professional Matlab programmers in less than 30 days. Yes, I know that is a bold statement, but I have more than 6000 students to support my claim. I have developed a unique curriculum that would reinforce the student learning in a much faster way than the conventional approach. In addition, both courses come with Coursovie Training Certificate that can be published on Linkedin.
