If you like to be a programmer and you have no Idea where to start and what to do, I’ll guide you trough the following slides.

so who is the programmer?

A programmer is someone who writes code that tells a computer or some other device what to do. In most situations, a computer programmer is building or creating something based on someone else’s or their-self design parameters.

First Step : Understand Why You Want To Start Programming?

The first and one of the most important steps on how to become a programmer is identifying your reasons for starting.

Why do you want to learn programming?
Are you serious about learning to program?
What sort of programming do you want to do?

Decide What Field You Want To Go Into

Think and do some research about it, what do you like or what do you prefer to do? Are you wanna be a “Web developer”? or “Software programmer” or “Data scientists” or “Database Administrator” or “Mobile app developer” or some other person in some other role? think and do some R&D about it, about the salary, required experiences, community and the feature of it.

Next Step: Learn A Programming Language

Once you have settled on a programming field, you need to learn the languages that are relevant to that field. for example you need to learn SQL to become a database administrator or CSS & JavaScript for Fron-End developer or Swift & Java to start building mobile apps.

Practice, Practice & Practice Some More

You have to practice. You have to practice a lot! That’s right, the key to becoming a good programmer is practice! Practice writing code from the moment you start learn. This helps you to become fast in thinking and writing codes and specially in debugging and problem solving. practice until you are completely fluent in all aspects of your chosen languages.

Start Building A Portfolio Of Work

When you go to apply for a job as an entry-level programmer, remember that there are probably at least a few other people who are applying for the same job. So you need to do something that makes you stand out above and ahead of the crowd. A portfolio is a great way to do this.

Apply For Jobs

Search for entry-level programming jobs that are related to the languages that you have learned and don’t expect to land a job from your first interview. Consider your first few interviews practice. Meantime consider taking freelance jobs to keep honing your skills and to make sure that your programming skills don’t get rusty.

Never Stop Learning!

Programming is a rapidly developing field. Learning how to become a programmer today won’t necessarily give you the skills that you need to remain a good programmer for the next few decades. You need to keep learning new skills and new languages.
