Quick Start Guide to Becoming a Computer Programmer
We are here to help you with expert guidance and trainers that have real world experience, and to make it easy for you we have compiled this Quick Start Guide that will help ensure you are taking the programming language courses that will help you most and lead you into a career that you may have only dreamed about.
Step 1: Decide which specialty excites you the most.
There are many different areas where programming is used and all have their own different flavorsand career paths. You may love video games and want to specialize in creating those with a team, or you may enjoy web development and gravitate to creating new online experiences, or possibly you want to get into the exciting world of virtual reality and work for a new and upcoming VR tech company.
Each specialty areausually has different programming languages that are most used, so in order to take the courses and learn the right languages, you first want to decide which area you like best.
Here are a few common programming specialty areas:
- Game Development
- Website Development
- Mobile App Development
- Software Development
- Database Development
- Software / Hardware Interface Design
- Graphic and User Interface (GUI)
Step 2: Find the programming languages that match your desired specialty.
There are certain programming languages that are used universally across several platforms, and others that are more specialized. So once you know which languages are used most for a particular area, you can zero in on those that you want to learn first. It is always a good idea to learn at least two different programming languages because many of them are used together.
C language uses include: Operating systems, text editors, Network drivers, modern programs, databases, language interpreters, utilities.
C++ language uses include: Software, games, applications, graphics and video editors, operating systems.
Java uses include: Building server-side applications, video games, mobile apps, flexible across multiple platforms.
Python uses include: Web apps (like Pinterest and Instagram), data analysis, language interpreting, software, video games.
PHP uses include: Website development (Facebook), app development.
Ruby (Ruby on Rails) uses include: Web apps, website development, mobile apps.
CSS uses include: Website development/design, mobile apps.
Step 3: Decide if you need a math or analytics brush up course.
There are many programming languages that are considered very easy to learn for beginners, such as Java, Ruby, and Python, but if you want to get into the more advanced languages like C or C++, then you may want to consider a math or logic based course if you feel you need to brush up your STEM skills.If you’re planning to go into SQL, you may want to take a Big Data & Analytics course first for an overview. We offer several courses in these areas that will give you a great head start.
Step 4: Sign up for your first course.
