Welcome to the learning curve Podcast, where brittik and Aravind share with you everything that they've learned so far about technology startups and remote life.
Wow, congrats. I mean, I think that was a first app and it won and accomplished
the blue screen
Yeah dude. Did you code in C?
That was the necessary language in all colleges. I think You write the code in some sort of weird terminal or the blue screen and then you compile it. I don't know. I don't, I didn't. I never really like that experience.
I'll tell you what frameworks are. They are rules set by other people to make coding in general easier, but still, you have to follow rules.
The job of frameworks is just to make things more easier.
Don't let the terminology confuse you.
Everyone loves vanilla icecream that’s why.
...how cool is it, like, you learn one language and you can nail all the platforms.
list of resources, I think you'll find a lot of resources on the web by just searching for them. But what advice I would give to people who are starting is that don't, don't get stuck in reading the docs. Because you should have a different mentality when you're reading the Docs or learning from the docs. And do not treat it as your textbooks. Because the conventional way that people do it is they try to complete the syllabus and then answer the questions. That is not how it works in the web these days because you should know that you don't have to know everything before you start building something. Learning on the go or like starting with half knowledge is very important. And I'd say you should, you should start building something as soon as possible. And learn on the on the go by googling what you need. Or if you face any problem, you Google that problem. And in this way, you will learn much better. And and I'd say that project, if you if you build something that you'll use on a daily basis, like you're solving some problem that you are facing, then you will have this motivation to even with continue building that and fixing things on the go. That's my top advice for someone who is starting out. What's your take?
Don't get stuck in reading the docs
You don't have to know everything before you start building something.
Learning on the go, or like, starting with half knowledge is very important.
I think I would say the same thing that yes, you know, do your project. And I would like to add that there is when you look at a language, there is so much that is possible with it. It has so many features, so many technicalities that you can learn, but you're not going to apply all of them. And also you will feel overwhelmed when you look at it as a whole big thing to learn. Rather, if you're just doing a project. Yes, you can do it like Aravind said. So my advice would be yes, start with Code Academy, I would highly recommend recommended. I'm not sure if it's still the same Code Academy or or if it got better or worse, you have to look that up. Also, Team Treehouse is good. The show a few view videos. And after that, there is a quiz, which is basically having to write code. So as long as you're writing code, you're good. You are learning, but ultimately, make something share it with the world. Learn how to use GitHub, what is version control, learn that and also check out netlify. It's it's a service where you can immediately host your website, you can drag your folder there as long as it has an index dot HTML file, it will be out there netlify will give you a link and you can just share it with the world. So yeah, put something out there. We will be very excited to check it out.
and guys do 100 days of code challenge you can do it and it keeps you accountable. The world knows and yeah, if that is something you're if that's your cup of tea, start that. If you're someone like me, who doesn't want to, you know, brag about what you're learning, just learn a lot something and share it, share it with the world. We hope you guys love this episode, like share and you know, follow us. And yeah, have an amazing weekend. Bye
Do 100 days of code challenge. You can do it and it keeps you accountable.
