For me it's video tutorials. It is like having lessons at the university. I don't want to read hundreds of pages in a book. I enjoy it, if I am presented the essential things in a short time.

Suzie The tutorials are only the first step. With these I gain an impression what is possible. How to apply these things in my own tasks is the next step when exercising with examples. And the question is always which of the learned topics do I really need, which of them do I need on a daily base, and which are nice to know that they exist, but I will need them at least every third leap year. If you attended university, you learned a lot of topics, but you will later need 5 to 10 % at the utmost, of which you have learned. But before you can not say which 10% you will need, and my 10% won't be congruent with your 10% - not completely, perhaps parts of it.

Think of what you would like to code and just try it. Do you want to build a game or a website? Lets go! You will encounter problems and you will solve them. That's the best way from my point of view. Have you ever read a book about swimming or watched a video about bicycling? Just do it!

First of all LEARNING is priority.-->which could be through online tutorials..,or pdfs..or whayever. Second is the most important that is PRACTISE.-->U can practise coding using various IDEs or here in sololearn... It all depends on how determined U are...

I also prefer video tutorials the way Jan Markus said but again some argue that it makes you not to analyze concepts on your own

Videos. Scientifically as videos have 'moving objects' that capture the eye and interest the viewer. Thus we prefer watching videos than reading tutorials. But basically, it's up to you. I don't exactly watch videos but rather go online and search for tutorials. One of my favourite is learncpp.com! It teaches C++ in great detail and isn't naggy. It also has good tips and stuff! But, other than that, is to PRACTICE! Or else, half the time you think you remember it, the next you don't even know the concept anymore! By practicing and revising, you are helping yourself shift that information into the long-term memory 'database' in your brain! Thus, you can choose! Whether to watch vids, read tuts, or get tutored by a teacher. Here are some good tutorial/places to learn coding: Khan Academy SoloLearn Envato Tuts+ Tutorials Point learncpp.com HTML Dog The New Boston - Youtube Code with Harry - YouTube Prometheus Coding - YouTube (He is also in SL!) (By Trupti Gangakhedkar): w3schools by w3c codeforge

Personally, I think books are a man's best friend (yeah dogs too😬). But if u are determined and wish to learn, then any source should do. Video tutorials: good if you have a laptop (mine committed suicide so I do on my android 😅) PDFs: just started learning termux. Got a PDF file of some stuff related to termux (which is really really complicated- shell, bash, commands, etc I can't understand) though PDFs also are a great source to learn from. I also have a python PDF which is just AWESOME!! Google: that's a personal preference. Some like it some don't. But I think books are better. My friends have learnt python in their course (unfortunately I opted for physics chem bio n math. They opted phy chem math and comp sci) their book for python is deeply into it!! Everything from basic to advance, every package every stuff explained, including matlab n Django

You have been knowing about hit and trial methods in maths. It's the best way to do coding by taking some problem and try to solve it.

learn basic concept and syntax from anywhere you want...what matters is only practice.

Start analyzing the problem to solve. Think about potential methods and algorithms. Perhaps you already have the required background? Otherwise it might be good idea to start with some reading on coding concepts and terminology. Without this knowledge it might become frustrating very quickly. Once you have some lines of code ready for debugging there is plenty of room for trial and error. As a programmer you take responsibility. Consider corner cases, make sure the code works efficient and won't consume resources (CPU cycles, memory) excessively. Don't use code you just googled and you don't understand. Personally I love reading books as they provide knowledge in a structured format and contain lots of ideas.

Advise you dont use book. Use youtube

+2

I think books can provide way of thinking for programming besides syntax.

+2

In my opinion, you should go ahead with tutorials as books or videos and just consider it as a part of your learning process without forgetting that practicing is a very important part too.

+2

For me pdf materials because it has got source codes, write step by step

+2

I think Books and Video tutorials are best. If you want to learn from books then Yashvant Kanetkar's books are best and if you want to learn from videos the Edureka YouTube channel.

{The Piqued Learner} you can add w3schools and codeforge to the list i think so..

As you mentioned, your way is

It varies from person to person. I love learning from vedio tutorials.

Trupti Gangakhedkar Thank you so much! :D
