Wanna be a programmer? That shouldnât be too hard. You can sign-up for an iterative online tutorial at a site like Codecademy or Treehouse. You can check yourself into a âcoding bootcampâ for a face-to-face crash course in the ways of programming. Or you could do the old fashioned thing: buy a book or take a class at your local community college.
But if want to be a serious programmer, thatâs another matter. Youâll need hundreds of hours of practiceâand countless mistakesâto learn the trade. Itâs often more of an art than a skillâwhere the best way of doing something isnât the most obvious way. You canât really learn to craft code thatâs both clear and efficient without some serious trial and error, not to mention an awful lot of feedback on what youâre doing right and what youâre doing wrong.
Thatâs where a site called Exercism.io is trying to help. Exercism is updated every day with programming exercises in a variety of different languages.
