Learning to code (unironically)

1. Recommended resources
2. Goal is self-employment aka just free lancing. I don't want a typical 9-5 job. I prefer freedom.

How doable is it and about how much time would it take to learn just enough to be able to get freelance work?

    1. Wikipedia
    2. Just ask if anyone wants bots on discord or whatever. People pay thousands for sniping bots on things like Nike shoes.

      Just learn some html/css/javascript. Make a few practice websites and build up a portfolio. It will take about 6 months or so. Yeah don't make sniping bots, we don't need more annoying shit like that in the world

        This is terrible advice. webdev is horrific for learning good programming fundamentals or remotely enjoying programming to any capacity.

      > too lazy to use Google

      I had a boss who told me I should need to use Google ever, because that's not what they pay me for.
      He unironically thought that no computer could think as fast as he could, so f u craig. That's the problem with "entrepreneurs"

    I am actually going to give you good advice here anon.

    I am a fullstack eth dev and I love my job. I have flexible hours, can work for whoever I want, and get to build and push things all the time it's great.

    Programming is super fun, you just get to automate a lot of your everyday life with work, and it's fun to tweak and configure new ways of doing stuff.

    The best route for learning how to program IMHO is this:

    1) Install a unix like operating system, either some linux distro (they are all very similar, ubuntu or Pop_OS! are good choices when starting) or macOS. I don't use windows so I can't say anything about the WSL but people say that is nice too.

    2) Learn how to use the command line. There are a number of tutorials out there, luke smith has some good videos on it, but learning how to programmatically interact with your computer builds great foundations.

    3) Learn how to write bash scripts. Bash is a super simple language to learn, and is super useful to write helper scripts for you to make your life easier in the command line.

    4) Learn a general purpose programming language. The specific language really doesn't matter that much, you want to pick a language that is popular so you can get help if need be, and once you learn the syntax and concepts just start building things that are interesting to you. Python is a solid first choice. Push your limits and fail, you will learn the most when you are right outside of what you are comfortable with. Try to avoid just googling your problems, but working out why your program is failing, problem solving skills are super important in this field.

    Also try to avoid shiny object syndrome as much as possible. When things get hard in your language you learn, you may be tempted to hop over to a different language or learn some new "thing". Don't do this and instead just work more at becoming a master of your language.

    This is getting long gonna reply to this

      When you start getting really good in your language, then you can start branching off into learning other things such as the web stack, or a blockchain programming language (assuming you want to go down that route). Really anything you try to learn will come pretty quick because all languages within the same paradigm will be pretty similar to work with.

      Over anything, just have fun learning how to program and interact with your computer, its a great time.

      Godspeed anon and if you drop your tg handle id be happy to reach out and mentor or help you in some capacity if you want. Cheers

        What do you do with python

        • 3 weeks ago
          Anonymous

          It's a general purpose programming language. So a better question is what don't you do with python.

          Build a web scraper, write scripts to organize or search through your files, do some data analysis, or play with machine learning. Your options are just about limitless.

        too bad I'm an anti-social autist, but I'll look into your advice. Thanks. I changed to part-time work so I should have more time to try this out.

          Nothing wrong with being social while staying anon. Making connections with people is super valuable for both learning and getting jobs. The good news is in web3 nobody cares who you are if you are making cool stuff.

        could you mentor me? i know nothing in terms of programming but i'm super eager to learn. one day i want to fully understand machine learning as it's fascinating. i play around with gpt3 prompts occasionally and have tons of fun with it, and im going to hopefully apply to dalle2 soon as well 🙂

        literally everything he said is spot on though. im not a developer, but I went from wrangling retards for $12/hr to being an IT manager/sysadmin in 5 years making over $100k, working on system architect/engineering next. Everything he said is 100% true about learning tech and seeing the forest for the trees.

    W3 because they have quick documentation

    Learn by doing, not just copy paste code from github

    Build automation projects, even if they are slow as shit, just so you can realize what can be done faster in your life.

    Also do not be critical about your code when comparing it to others. You're learning.

    Leetcode for testing yourself.
    Youtube videos for learning slowly.
    Documentation and experimentation to keep yourself interested everyday.

    Also VBA is cool, check out Excel for Freelancers. Business level documents on just Excel and guy is pretty good.

    You need a degree anyone telling you otherwise is a homosexual. Degrees from Western universities are used to filter out the "University of Pajeets Incorporated" fly-by-night pay-per-degree universities in india, so companies at least know that Sri Ramanan Patel is educated in California's questionable university system instead of Hyderabad's.
