Learning a new programming language
The fastest way to learn a language is to start programming a project. As you start the project, you will Google techniques, syntax, and stuff you need to do. The other thing I do when I'm learning is create a project that has simple methods that use every method in the language. Yes, every. I go alphabetically and learn every method that is available in the language. I may not ever use some of them again but I generally know that they exist which helps me when I'm solving a problem.
Generally you will need a project that has some basics.
- A login
- A user profile page
- A list of some sort
- A logout page
- The list should be some kind of CRUD on a database
What does that sound like? A typical to-do list project. Do that. Create the typical to-do list application.
You will learn how to connect to a database, user management, and of course debugging.
There is no magic, it takes practice. And do it frequently.
I hope this helps get you started on your next language, or your first.
