(Sorry for my english)I will attend university for computer or software engineering at 2017. But my knowledge for programming is very weak. Do you guys think starting to study at summertime will be helpful at university? Do you guys find working at freecodecamp.com for 6-8 hours a day will be efficient for a beginner level person? I figured out that also MIT’ opencourceware is a helpfull site which thoughts lessons. Do you guys find that site efficient? What kind of a path that i should choose to work efficiently to gain more knowledge about programming?
I would find out as much about the program you are going to enroll in and work on things that are related or learn things now that will prepare you so you are ready or even give you a bit of head start.
Do you have any programming experience? Do you know which language you will learn/work with when you get to college?
Edit:i dont know which language we will learn at the university because in my country every university has diffrent curriculum and I don’t know which university will accept me.
If i were you I will go to edx.org right now and start studying cs50
A year or so ago, Python was the most popular introductory language at top US universities. I attempted the mit opencourseware when I first started learning, but half way through the course the math became difficult for me.
Good luck out there, I am on a journey that is similar to yours.
Learning one programming language will introduce topics that carry over to others such as variables, if statements, arrays, loops, functions and scope so on so that when you learn a new one you just have to learn how to implement these instead of learning everything from scratch.
The key is to do a bit everyday, even if it’s just 15 minutes each day.
