Basically everything. There's no secret which cannot be unveiled by enough practice. You won't learn to code just by reading articles and tutorials. You have to write code to understand what is going on, and writing code itself is an experience.

do not copy codes from others or from internet because you cannot learn from that. You need to know what's your error and you need to debug it through your own.

Coding is like hairs. Yes you read it right , Hairs !! To get good , healthy , silky and shiny hairs ,one must work on them like oiling , conditioning them and many more things. Same as in the case of coding , one ought to practice on the regular basis , give time to programming languages and most importantly , having patience ( which is by far most important thing because if you are not enough patient you will never learn to code ). Coding is not something one day thing , it takes time to learn the concepts and apply them . And remember that un-patient person can never solve errors which is not a good thing in coding . Thanks

Document, document, document, document, document. Use comment lines liberally and frequently. If you share code with others, the only way to figure out the why and the how is to read the comments. I've found with my own code that 6 months or a year later, it might take me quite a bit of time to remember why I did something or to reverse engineer what something was supposed to do and how it works. Lots of comments make it a lot quicker to remember, fix, improve, etc.

The secret of writing readable, logical code, the secret of never giving up no matter how many bugs pop up at the start, no matter how long it takes you to resolve them, the secret of using a debugger, the secret of taking every critique or feedback as a positive one, the ability to bury any destructive criticism and the secret of being optimistic at all times, the secret of using platforms and communities like Sololearn, Stack Overflow and all their features. Well you asked for one secret, I gave you more 😀. Now just go ahead and have a fantastic coding career and life!

Learn from different sources, benefit from different opinions and comments, from different people. Repeat regularly, preferably daily, until it is firmly in your head. Practice in the IDE, search projects on the Internet and try to code. Document the findings and share your knowledge with others. Think outside the box and also deal with hardware, products, innovations and developer news. First, set to one programming language till you know exactly what you do :) It's all the right attitude, youtube, goals, people and sololearn...

The only way to learn and grow as a programmer is by writing programs everyday get errors and bugs and trouble shoot. No one is born a programmer they are made through trial and error. Learn through repetition, repetition, repetition. (There is no magic pill for overnight success)

When you read about OOP and design patterns you somehow understand how it works. But the „how exactly“ and „when to use what“ is really a matter of experience, learning and finding a good example „in the wild“ all of a sudden. :)

"Confusion" The more you confuse the better you will raise queries by yourself and try to learn new stuff till you know about it completely.

Don't give up when the program fails to work. Continue trying no matter how long it takes. Programming can be frustrating at times

The secret is to make a lot of codes and debug them yourself. You'll learn a ton of stuff. Also the harder you think a code is to make the more you SHOULD make it to push yourself to become better.

computer language is the same as any human language. You need to surround yourself with people who can speak it well and ask for help where you don't understand. And to become good you need to practice regularly as the old saying " if you don't use it, you will loose it"
