These days almost no one is arguing with the fact that you can totally learn programming from scratch online and get a coding job. And even with the fact that learning online is one of the most effective methods to become a professional coder. Most people agree that the Internet offers more than enough information making it possible literally for anyone to learn to code. Yet, the reality is, not so many actually manage to do this. Why? There is nothing wrong with online courses and other ways meant to teach them. It’s just that studying online implies you are doing this on your own. The sad truth is: not everyone can be a self-learner. It seems like not a big deal at first, but everyone who has tried to master a skill or a craft solo knows there will be obstacles on the way, often insurmountable for the majority of self-learners. They are the real reason you may fail. Let’s take a quick look at the main problems a solo learner of programming (or other skill) would normally face.
- Not clear where to start.
- Hard to come up with a study plan.
- Difficult to get practical experience.
- Impossible to balance the learning process in the right way.
- Nowhere to get help.
- Failing to mix theory with practice in a balanced way.
