I wasn't a complete beginner when I came here, but I was quite new to programming. I would say SL helped me learn a lot. But I would also add that SL should NOT be your *main resource*. SoloLearn is perfect for beginners, but if you want to get better at a language or subject, you need to learn from more resources, like books or articles online. That said, this question is off-topic and open-ended. These questions are more suited to be posted in your "Feed". Please read this https://www.sololearn.com/discuss/1316935/?ref=app Happy coding!
I was a 100% beginner in Python
Yes, actually I started with this app, but YouTube is also great source of information and courses. So I went through course with some YouTube support if I was not sure if I understand something. There are also great forums like stackoverflow, which is imo "must know" for any programmer. SoloLearn will explain you just basics of each language, and I haven't found any better courses for beginners
Yes, me... I didn't know anything about programming... I was 11 when I started learning to program... I first saw few tuts on YouTube, they were help... Then I move to sololearn, sololearn is really helpful. I learned html css js python php SQL all from sololearn only...
Kode Krasher thanks for the link 👍
I started python without any basic knowledge, right from here. But you cannot rely on this platform for learning new skill. You have to learn to code and practice more and more by yourself. This platform, however is best for examining yourself and has good community support for beginners.
Wow it is truly an inspiration hearing your guys stories, thank you for sharing them everyone! This community seems amazing.
Yup, just SL and pdfs!
XXX thank you for sharing your experience! I definitely am going over other videos and resources, this is just my main structured route for right now as I've been struggling to find something that dives in and lets me get hands on experience. Sololearn seems to be great for that so far! I apologize for posting in the wrong area, i will read the link provided and familiarize myself more with the app. Thanks again!
Steve Sajeev thank you for sharing your experience! Gives me confidence in Sololearn.
This post was a year ago, and I documented my journey in the thread with resources I used along the way: https://www.sololearn.com/discuss/2153816
To be honest, this app can't be an absolute main resource. I needed 1 year to learn everything about java upto loops. Including concepts, underlying mechanisms of java,etc. It helped me have a good grasp over things as java is my first programming language. However, on the app you probably needed a day to finish everything upto loops. However the app is great for people who already know something... The challenges are great! They test good knowledge of the language and I love them....
I am a beginner 😇
Never2Late I wasn't a beginner when I found SL but believe me I wished there would have been something like SL. When I started no one knew anything and with a handbook with lots of trail and error I got there. However short before my retirement I learned a few things and even some languages that they did not had invented yet. So in my humble opinion Solo learn is a gift accept it make some friends here and your journey to become a programmer or coder will be much easier than in my starting days. I Sincerely wish you a lot of success in your journey and endeavor to become a good programmer. But be aware this kind of carrier will force you to keep on learning every day as long as you're growing to become a coder and you will never be done learning. But that's cool and don't forget to give something back to the community 😜 Good luck 🍀
Yea...I was a 100% beginner...I never knew anything about programming until I joined SoloLearn 😅...Buh sometimes I do have problems though so I do watch videos on YouTube or read PDFs... SoloLearn is pretty cool😎
So many responses I have to say thank you again. Anytime im having trouble staying focused I come back here for inspiration. Thanks.
Michał D Slick Thank you guys for the feedback! I really appreciate it as it gives me some hope hearing from others experience. I will check into stackoverflow for sure!
