Learning a new language is no easy task, and for programming languages, it’s no simpler.

There are many reasons people want to learn to code, with some doing it ultimately to start a new career and others because they enjoy it.

 

1. Take Advantage Of Online Resources

The internet gives you an endless wealth of information at your fingertips, and you should take full advantage of it. Learning a new program won’t happen overnight, but you can speed along the process with the right tools.

 

2. Use Second-Language Acquisition

Learning any new program is no easy task. If you want to learn a programming language faster, you have to treat it the same way you’d treat learning a spoken language. Start by using second-language acquisition (SLA).

 

 3. Don’t Cram Information

According to a research study performed by UCLA, cramming information is associated with more learning problems and less sleep. Your ability to retain information while cramming decreases, and your brain only remembers the beginning and end of your study sessions.
