Where to start?


#1

Hi all,

I am new to coding, and I would love to learn more about general coding as it pertains to data analysis and the business world (my occupation is mgmt consultant). I was reading that I should probably start with Python. Any recommendations on where to start, what “paths” to follow, would be greatly appreciate it!


#2

Seems you answered your own question? Any python and general programming concepts you can learn is good


#3

Thanks. Was mostly wondering if there was a specific path I should follow in learning these?


#4

No, just take one or several python courses, to have a good understanding about python and then move on to data science, you can learn about panda and numpy.

And mostly, just practice, a lot


#5

Yep, python would probably be the way to go. I source talent for the business world and Python users are starting to be in high demand


#6

I honestly believe your path should be Python, JavaScript, PHP, then HTML.
This is what I started with, except I didn’t do PHP much :stuck_out_tongue:

Hi everyone. I wanted to add something more but you have already mentioned everything :stuck_out_tongue:


#8

go to youtube and watch CS50 lectures by David Malan too if you have time.

Python is a nice course to start because the language overall is easy. But there are two paths:

The Web Development path:
The Web Development path contains the languages HTML, CSS, JavaScript, PHP, SQL, and others. These are used to build webpages.

Programming Path:
This path is more used to create apps and other things. The languages to name a few are Python, C++, and Java.

I hope this helps =)
