More than ever, smart technology and computers are being used frequently within our daily lives as a necessity to help businesses, artists and everyday people to function properly within our society. It is without question that within this rapidly evolving technological landscape, there has never been a better time to pick up computer programming courses. Whether you wish to learn the basics or further improve your programming skillset, Superprof can help steer you in the right direction!
Computer programming, or coding, is essentially the ‘instructions’ we give to computers to complete and automate tasks. The context in which we code things is constantly changing and can be found in things such as web applications, mobile applications, websites, database systems and even game development. Prior to the digital age, coding and computer programming was not as thought about or seriously considered as it is today - computers and technology in general was still an unfamiliar concept to many people and there were very little resources for budding enthusiasts wishing to enter the field. However, as technology has evolved and become an integral part of our everyday lives, so has the demand for people to be proficient in coding language and in many industry roles, has become a mandatory requirement. In the modern age, computer systems are used for pretty much everything so it is no wonder computer programming is being taught more than ever in primary schools, secondary schools, industry training facilities and universities around Australia. Programing is essential when it comes to collecting and automating data correctly and ensuring that businesses and organisations can harness the power of computers in the most efficient way possible.
Programming is an excellent skill that people from most age groups should learn; however, the difficulty of each course/lesson chiefly depends upon the student’s experience and how in depth they want to go into the learning material. Younger students who are considering a potential pathway into computer programming and development may wish to start slow and build up their knowledge of the fundamental basics within certain coding languages. Learning the basics behind programming will help develop your confidence and certainly assist in future coding tasks that require prior understanding. Moreover, even the most minimal coding knowledge will always look impressive to a potential employer as it shows you are capable of dealing with future technological problems that may arise. It is worth noting that basic programming courses are not strictly reserved for younger students, as more mature students may also equally benefit from learning these skills - it’s never too late to learn! Conversely, those who are well versed in certain coding languages but wish to diversify their skillset may want to explore lessons that are far more in depth or involve a coding language they are unfamiliar with. Coding languages are constantly changing to meet the demands of modern technological scenarios, and therefore it should be in an experienced student’s best interest to stay relevant.
Coding teachers suited to meet your requirements
Through Superprof, we aim to provide you with a vast selection of teachers with various training backgrounds and lesson rates so that you are able to learn in the most affordable way possible. We understand that not everyone is the same, and sometimes you may be unable to afford consistent coding courses. Luckily, Superprof provides hundreds of programming tutors to suit whatever budget you’re on - big or small. These session rates are primarily determined by our tutors, and quite often correlate with their expertise, methodology and overall knowledge of the types of coding you may want to explore.
Many tutors will try their best to:
- provide students with practical knowledge from real-world experiences
- devise a work plan that caters to the student’s goals and interests in regard to the programming world
- explain complex theories in easy to understand terms
- provide simple tests and learning exercises that incorporate acquired knowledge through each lesson
These specific methodologies are displayed on each tutor’s profile in addition to their educational background, real world experience, or any awards they may have won. If you are still unsure as to whether your preferred tutor is fully qualified, each profile can also be rated by current or past students. This review may be especially helpful if peer-reviewed feedback is a particularly valuable factor when making your decision to pick the right tutor. With all of this information clearly displayed on each tutor profile, narrowing down someone to mentor you through your programming journey is easier than ever. Not satisfied? Many tutors offer their first lesson free and there is no obligation to continue the lessons if you are not happy with your course.
The following languages may be useful when considering what area of computer programming you wish to undertake:
C: C is a great starting point for aspiring developers. However, due to its primitive nature, unconventional syntax, and non-compatibility with websites and web-based applications, it is becoming less common amongst businesses and the programming community as a whole. Nevertheless, those seeking traditional fundamental basics in code should take this language into consideration.
C++: an articulate understanding of C++ may be beneficial for those wanting to fully take advantage of machine resources and thus lead to greater performance overall. This may prove to be especially useful in avenues such as video game development.
Python: Python is an all purpose, scripting and automation language that is commonly used by programmers due to its code readability and short, simplistic and explicit function. Python’s versatility as a language means it is well suited to software applications, web pages and operating systems.
