Every beginning is hard! I take you by the hand…
We all know it: we want to learn something new and are also largely motivated. But when we start, we hit directly against a high wall.
Whole new challenges, terms and concepts, where should you start?
I started teaching myself programming in 7th grade. There I sat now. Only me and my computer!
At that time, I did not have anyone to teach me anything. Also, the World Wide Web was still very sparse and even in its infancy. So, the work started. With trial and error, I started to manipulate source code of web pages and thus slowly advanced in HTML.
Later, PHP was added, and I found the first instructions on the Internet. But horror of horrors! All at once I needed a server and a database. But what is a database? How does it work? Where can I get a server? How do I set it up?
1000 riddles that had to be solved until I could even start the first simple Hello World program and start programming!
Save a frustrating start
What would I have saved me weeks of work and frustrating research, if there had been someone who had taken me by the hand and at least explained to me where the problems are.
Sure, as a programmer you have to be able to solve problems. But actually, those first problems were the biggest problems I ever had to solve in my career as a developer.
Because at some point I had a routine and could build on knowledge. So most of the time everything worked out well somehow. But the first step was the hardest!
If you are like that, then today you have a huge advantage over my former self. You have someone who takes you by the hand and takes away from you those ever long and even motivation killing research.
I will directly answer all the questions a beginner has and help you to set up the necessary development environment. I am also happy to take first steps with you in the actual learning of programming.
I am your support until you can walk alone!
If you have prior knowledge or some experience, we can already start on a higher level. Here is a short list of things, where I might help you:
What do you learn from me?
- How do I start?
- What do all these technical terms mean?
- How can I get started? What do I have to set up? How does it work? For what is it good?
- Where can I inform myself independently? Which free tutorials are there?
- Or in short: How to program?
- How do I find and fix errors in my code?
- How can I optimize my code?
In itself, I just want to get you continuing on your own as fast as possible with only a few sessions. For the rest of the way there are very cheap or free video courses, etc. My individual coaching is meant to pick you up where you are and to prepare you so that you can continue on your own. Of course, I can continue to accompany you even more afterwards. You decide!
Of course, I can also help you with programming or fixing bugs at a higher level. However, this is beyond the scope of a teaching activity and would then be accounted for as normal development costs.
If you are now interested and you would like to test the world of programming, then you might wanna book training lessons with me here. Programming is really not as difficult as you might imagine.
As I said, I learned it in the 7th grade on my own. You can do it, too! Especially if I help you with it. Besides, you do not need to be a math genius, as many people think, but coding is more about logical thinking.
And most of all, sometimes you need a lot of humility, because the computer is always right! If there are mistakes, it is 99.999% your fault. And there is no mercy, because the computer understands only logic and not intentions.
On the other hand, there is almost no greater satisfaction than if you spend a whole night on a problem and then finally get it fixed 😉 Programming is so much fun!
And the best thing is: As a programmer, you have the perfect job for a life as a digital nomad. The hourly wages in the western world are enormous, there are enough jobs for the foreseeable future, the work is predestined for location independence and you can also develop your own products and sell them later for a lot of money! If you want to know more about how you can work as a programmer from the most beautiful places in the world and also avoid taxes, read my Liberated.blog.
College graduates can read in the math book how to add vectors. But elementary school children need to be first taught the normal adding of two numbers!
