Becoming a Programmer

print “Hello, World!”

Since childhood I have worked with scripts and code, modified work by others and got by. For a number of years I have been thinking about making the shift to becoming a real programmer. Learning an object-oriented language in a proper manner and learning to make my own programs is a new goal of mine. Luckily for me I have a lot going for me (including a supportive brother who happens to be a professional).

For a start I am working on learning Python as it is popular and there are a lot of resources for learning it. After I get comfortable with Python I plan to move on to learning how to use Xcode and start working on Swift. Swift seems to be an up-and-coming language and it might be nice to get comfortable with it from the start!

I was trying to take a course online, but it was a bit pricey as it charges by the month and it is hard for me to make much time at the moment. I will move back to self-study and see how it goes. Wish me luck!
