I want to be a programmer


What you want to be when you grow up Olivia An astronaut I want to be a fashion designer A basketball player A doctor A teacher A chef An artist What you want to be when you grow up A mermaid Do you know what a computer programmer is No No I think it is something that has code and it is decode of mystery Way what computer programmer No Nowadays just about everything requires some form of programming So what is it Programming is basically explaining to computer what you want it to do for you When you programming you are teaching possibly the stupidest thing in the entire universe a computer how to do something programming is one of the only things in
the world that you can do where you can sit down and just make something completely new from scratch whatever you want it’s really not unlike and playing an
instrument or playing sport it starts out being very intimidating
but kind of get the hang of it over time Coding is something that can be learned and I know it can be intimidating a lot of things are intimidating but you know what isn’t what coding language should i learn
first if you’re going to do any website development you should learn HTML what about CSS dreamweaver and the like you have to know HTML inside and out to debug them if they are problems on a website and need to understand HTML to use them effectively and HTML is easy to pick up I heard you should learn JavaScript after HTML and all of this is only if you consider mark of languages as programming languages let’s say I code apps which one should I have learned first C++ or a variation is a good idea it’s used almost everywhere what about Ruby on Rails that’s in the news a lot is being used by some hot sites only because coders can slap together as quickly with it making it a go to solution for internet and apps startups you do better learning PHP or Python you can’t do much wet work with those that’s what the HTML code interfaces are for your data mining mathematical modeling data analysis and number crunching will be done by software written in PHP or Python someone told me I should learn SQL SQL is a way to interact with the database but it isn’t a programming language in itself though knowing it can get you a good paying job as a database administrator fixing duplicate cell references and locked cells isn’t my idea of fun and you don’t get the glory of saying that you have a new app on the App Store if you’re looking at long-term potential and value to employers you can find tons of jobs for java development C++ and Python objective-c isn’t as much in demand because it is limited to the iOS but it pays well because fewer people learn it that is supply and demand what should I learn ideally you should learn at least one web based language in the programming language so you can do whatever project is available i am a software engineer at home joy home joy is a technology company that focuses on the home services space So anytime you need a person to your home and provide any
kind of service such as a home cleaning or plumbing or handyman you can go on to our website and you can book it on demand a software engineer is anyone that touches code and programs things for your computers at home joy specifically i’m a website developers so when you type in homejoy.com everything that you see on the page that’s kind of what I own here all of our back-end systems are in Python and all of our front end stuff is in HTML Javascript CSS start up our mentality really is to work fast and feel fast so in reality what we do is we ship a lot of products a lot of code and then we come back and kill all the things don’t work and then try to start over again my dad actually did software engineering so I was exposed to it from a really young age and I really like dreamed about being a game developer when I was in high school and I thought building video games with so much fun I went to MIT in Boston I study electrical engineering and computer science which is basically everything that goes into higher computer works I’ve interned at companies like Microsoft and Google the experiences at my previous internships taught me a lot about this career and just exposed me to a lot of things in the like software universe I had female mentors when I went to microsoft and my female mentor she was amazing she really encouraged me to do all the work that i wanted to do and be the kind of person I want to be and just come and be weird and wacky and like all my weird hobbies and where my scarves but still able to sit in a meeting that’s like almost all men and say this is what I do I’m really good at what I do and have them respect me because I know how to build software one day I can change my mind and built games I can build an iOS app I can build something for your phone so there are so many different kinds of possibilities it’s really important to explore when you’re young all different kinds of interest you have and really find that thing that you’re passionate about and just go for it I just think you have to start small right and I think that’s one of the biggest misconceptions about computer science and programming overall is that you have to learn this big body of information before you can do anything you don’t have to be a genius to know how to do you need to be determined additions subtractions that that’s about it You dont have to be a genius to code you have to be genius to read you have to be genius to do math no the first program i wrote asked thing like what is your favourite colour or how old are you I first learned how to make a green circle and a red square appear on the screen the first time I actually had something
come up and say hello world and it look I made a computer do that was just
astonishing when I finally learned a little bit of programming that that blank wall resolved into a bunch of doors and you open them and finally you start to open enough doors that the light comes in and to me a finished program is like a structure filled with light all the corners are illuminated you
understand the structure of a it’s a really serene feeling to have completed that someone had told me that software is really about humanity that it’s really about helping people by using computer technology it would have changed my outlook a lot earlier whether you’re trying to make a lot of money or whether you just want to change the world computer programming an incredibly empowering skill to learn to be be able to actually come up with an idea
and then see it in your hands and then be able to press a button and haven’t been millions of people’s hands I think we’re the first generation the world that’s really ever had that kind of experience the programmers of tomorrow are the wizards of the future you know you’re going to look like you have magic powers compared to everybody else I think it’s amazing it’s I think it’s the closest thing we have to a superpowe great coders are today rockstar that’s it Final exam question paper will be stored in the central server of university I just need an entry point It is easy Most of the hackers only pass through They appear in the system without changing a thing Others leave a hint and many take a souvenir I was Superman, Spiderman, Batman CLAY’s next move was a small greeting to the financial world ta da move Asia financialdevelopment have close relationship with Wall Street decision German share market is being affected slightly good financial environment gurantee German bond and company profits today Dax indicates its strong uprising nice I just think you have to start small right and I think that’s one of the biggest misconceptions about computer science and programming overall is that you have to learn this big body of information before you can do anything you don’t have to be a genius to know how to code you need to be determined additions subtractions that that’s about it you dont have to be genius to code you have to be a genius to read do you have to be a genius to do math no first program i wrote asked things like what’s your favorite color or how old are you I first learned how to make a green circle and a red square appear on the screen the first time I actually had something come up and say hello world and it look I made a computer do that was just astonishing when I finally learned a little bit of programming that that blank wall resolved into a bunch of doors and you open them and finally you start to open enough doors that the light comes in and to me a finished program is like a structure filled with light all the corners are illuminated you understand the structure of it it is really serene feeling to have completed
