How do I become a computer programmer?
There are probably a million different ways to be aputer programmer. The way I learned over 2 years ago is only slightly different than how I teach people to code in my courses. The #1 thing you need to do to be aputer programmer is to write code. Nothing is as important as that. Now at this point you might be wondering How do I write code if I don know how to programputers? Okay so back when I was a kid I wanted to make my own video games. My goal was to someday be a video game programmer and spend all day long playing and making video games. So like all nerdy kids the next time my mom took me to the bookstore I started obsessing over programming books. Somehow I settled on Teach Yourself C in 21 Days because for whatever reason I got it in my head that professional programmers used C so I needed to learn C. That how it started I got the book and started writing code for the various assignments in the book. I did things like Hello World simple calculators mind reading games and so on. Nothing tooplicated or anything. Just a whole lot of the basics. While other kids were out chasing girls going to parties or watching TV I was reading programming books and writing code. By 8th or 9th grade I managed to find a graphics library called Allegro that allowed me to make my own version of Pong. That was really amazing and so much fun. It even fit on a floppy disk! I would go around and show off my cool game and I was so proud of that thing. I think Im still proud of it. Meanwhile I kept writing code and I worked my way into 2D tilemap editors a horrible broken version of Tetris and a bunch of other bizarre little projects. The year I graduated high school I knew so much more about writing code that the one programming class my school offered I was put in a corner and told that I could do whatever I want but not to bother the other students. So I taught myself Java to prepare of college and wrote my own Final Fantasy style Role Playing Game called Mog Quest. That was maybe the most fun I had in school. The point of all of this is I didn really learn by going to classes or even having nice tutorials like exist now. I had these only slightly useful books and I just spent a lot of time writing code having it break fixing it and writing more code until somewhere along the line I became a very goodputer programmer. In retrospect it was obvious. Like any other meaningful skill I practiced every day and was so obsessed and motivated that I made up my own projects and games to play because it was just so much fun. I was so motivated and excited that it was easy to write code every day. I loved it. I still love it. And that I guess is the point. If you want to be aputer programmer just jump in. Find a great course or book or whatever and just write code. Make up your own projects and have fun! Because the secret is this If you have fun writing code every day eventually youll be aputer programmer and that is a very cool thing to be. -Brian P.S. I write about code and career issues elsewhere too
