Is coding difficult to learn?

Hello guys, in this article we will be looking at if coding is really hard to learn and what are the reasons behind why most people struggle while learning to code and I will also try to give you some of the tips to learn coding for absolute beginners in detail.

So without any delay let’s get started

Is coding difficult to learn?

Coding is not hard to learn but initially if you are a complete beginner then it can be a little intimidating and difficult for you but over the period of time it becomes easy as you practice more and more and whenever you are learning anything you not just coding but any other skill or language there will always be some discomfort and challenge and the same applies to coding as well.
Now there are certain reasons why coding can be difficult for some people which we will take a look at in detail below.

Now I will try to address the question that why coding is difficult to learn for some people

Reasons why coding can be difficult to learn

  1. One of the main reasons is that coding is not a language that we speak as humans but it is a language that only computers can understand and there are specific languages like Java and python or JavaScript which even though have little similarity with English language but they have different structures and syntax and it is also generally difficult to understand the syntax and learn the language
  2. Another reason is that you cannot learn the coding language or programming within a couple of weeks but you will have to dedicate more than 6 months or more time to learn programming or to land any programming language and if you want to become a software developer or you want to become a web developer then you will have to dedicate more than one year of time in learning coding and different languages and also learn data structures and algorithms
  3. Another thing is that coding is like a skill that you need to practice and you can only get better according if you practice it regularly over the period of time and as a mentioned early at that you will have to practice coding everyday for more than 6 months to have good knowledge and good grass over the programming language and if you don’t practice the coding language regularly then there is a chance of you forgetting the language
  4. Another reason why most of the people considered coding is difficult because there are several languages that you can choose from and it can be difficult for some people like beginners to choose which language they should be learning first for example there is a huge confusion between learning python or JavaScript or java and most of the beginners don’t even understand the difference between the languages and struggle to pick the right language for their need so this is also big reason and this lots of new languages coming in and this is also going to treat a lot of confusion and anxiety in the people like beginners
  5. And of course not choosing the right programming language is also one of the main reason because so many languages available so if you want to learn web development or machine learning then python is a right language to choose and if you want to develop games then JavaScript or java is the red language the unit to learn so there is different programming language for different purpose and using the right language is very important
  6. Another reason why most of the people considered coding is difficult is because they have not found the right teachers and mentors or they don’t have the good access of learning coding or they might have learn coding from books but thankfully there are so many courses online that you can enroll in for example there are hundreds of courses you can purchase on udemy where you can learn coding for absolutely cheap price for as low as 10$ so choosing the right resource from where you are learning the coding language is very important

These are some of the reasons why most of the people considered coding is very difficult to learn and hard in general

Now that you know why coding is difficult to learn here are some of the tips that can help you to make learning coding easier for you

How to make coding easy to learn?

  1. First of all don’t get panic and stressed out about the thought of learning and new coding language and even though there are several coding languages that are present but you don’t have to learn all of them you just have to select one language like python or java depending upon your need for example if you want to develop games then you have to select Java and if you want to work on web development than you have to select python¬†
  2. After you select the right programming language it is very important that you select the resource from where you are going to learn the programming language for example There are several free videos that you can find on YouTube teaching python language or if you want more organised content then you can purchase courses on udemy for cheap price
  3. You also need to commit yourself for learning coding for at least six months because if you don’t regularly practice coding and don’t work on things yourself then you will not find the results and as a mentioned early at that coding is like a skill that you need to practice to become good at it and if you don’t regularly practice it everyday over the period of time then it will become hard for you to learn
  4. And when about you have any query or doubt make sure that you join relevant programming groups on Facebook and you can also post your doubts and queries on forums like stack overflow to get answers from top software developers and programmers apart from that there are several online community is where you can join for programmers
  5. After you learn the coding you should look for some internship or some job so that you can get some money and this will give you a lot of motivation to learn coding much more because coding is a skill that is going to change your life because it is a highly demanded skill and according to the bureau of labour statistics the average salary of a it professional is around 97000 dollars per annum
