starting out

Post by ilkjester »

Ok so im just starting out. I guess you can't say im a noob or newb however ya want to spell it. But I have alot to learn but don't we all. Ive taken an html class at my highschool about two years ago. So im just gonna touch up on the and maybe go deeper into what I started. And I want to learn my first programing language, and also read up on networking because I bought a step up to networking book. Do you think im trying to do to much? Should i focus on one thing at a time? Or what would you recommend?

It depends on how much you can handle.

If I try doing too much at one time, I end up burning out and not being able to bring myself to do anything related to learning and computers for a while.

So..just take it easy. Go ahead and try to learn alot, but don't push yourself TOO hard.

Most of all...Enjoy it.

Later.

Well said. Same applies to me, if i try too hard or give myself too much to do, i just burn out. Instead, i devote myself to just one or two things at a time, learn it well, and move onto the next thing when i'm ready.
¯\_(ツ)_/¯ It works on my machine...

Go to college, get a cert or degree. They have computer labs, 'free' software to play with.
Hang out with other hackers to keep you simulated.

How much are you able to assimilate and understand?

I am an advocate (as anyone can attest to here) of starting out with HTML->css->javascript, and so forth.

If you can recreationally read networking while absorbing it and do your coding, then that's great.

Nice to meet you.

here is what i do ilkjester. I started out by learning html, did all the tuts online, got some e-books, read them too. Then i started Java, but i realized that thing is way too complicated and its gonna take you a while to learn it well. So i just learned the basics and switched to JavaScript, cuz its easier and u can build web pages for fun. However, i still study Java when i get a chance, plus i am going to take a class on it this semester. What i am trying to say is that laguages like java and C++ gona take a while to learn.

But i dont spend all my time learning languages, otherwise i would have gone nutts. I read other stuff, like networking (thats what you are interested if i am not wrong), wardriving, etc.

There is a lot to learn for me and you, and there is always room for improvement.

Nice to meet you and good luck.
