How To Make Money Online by Learning To Code.
Learning to code is a skill that will help you in your career and life. It is a valuable skill that will open up new opportunities and make you more employable.
Coding is the process of transforming ideas, solutions, and instructions into a language that the computer can understand. In simple terms, coding is how humans are able to communicate with computers.
In my opinion, coding is a skill that everyone should have. In fact, coding should be taught in schools like maths and other subjects are taught at an early stage.
This article is all about learning how to code, and how you can use coding skills to make money online.
How I Learned To Code
In 2016, after I joined the school of engineering, I was introduced to coding. The funny thing was that we were taught how to code on a whiteboard and then did an exam without ever stepping into a computer lab.
Being taught how to code without using a computer made me think coding is hard and made me hate it.
However in 2018, after two years in the school of engineering, I joined an organization called the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers.
IEEE is the world's largest technical professional organization dedicated to advancing technology for the benefit of humanity.
Opportunities and events that IEEE offered made me fall in love with technology. I saw exciting things that were happening in tech and I had a choice to make.
I could either be part of it or watch it happen.
That is when I decided to drop out of the school of engineering to go and learn how to code.
To be honest, dropping out of the school of engineering is the best decision I have ever made in my life.
After dropping out of university, I enrolled in a four-month course at a coding Bootcamp.
A coding Bootcamp is a concentrated course that teaches essential skills and provides real-world training for people seeking jobs in computer and information technology fields.
I found a coding Bootcamp very beneficial because we had an instructor or a tutor that guided us on how to get started with coding.
When getting started with learning how to code, it can be very overwhelming and intimidating. That means that you may think coding is not your thing and quit.
Even though I joined a coding Bootcamp, most things I know in coding are self-taught.
There are many different ways to learn how to code. From free resources on the internet to in-person coding classes.
The problem with getting started to learn how to code on your own is that you may find getting started very confusing.
That is why having someone to guide you and provide a good roadmap is very important.

When starting to learn how to code, you have to have a plan for what you're going to do with your newly acquired skill set.
Decide whether you want to get a Job, Freelance, or work on your own projects.
Instead, start with something small that you can get done in an hour or two.
Learn by building things that people actually want to use.
Once you feel comfortable enough with the basics of coding (HTML/CSS), start building stuff that people will actually use — whether it's a website for your friends' band or an app for your school's club fair.
This will help you build up a portfolio of work that shows potential employers what kind of things you're capable of doing (and how well).
