how to learn code effectively?
I have been learning code ,but I have come to a stage were it is hard to learn the new concepts. I just go and watch videos and copy it into my IDE. How can I learn effectively? How can I learn actively?
Hey! I know what you mean about finding it difficult to learn things, but I've got a solution. All you need to do is set yourself a project, something to aim for. If, whilst coding that project, there's something you don't know - just Google it. Personally, I find that if I actually use a function or method that I didn't know in my own code, it tends to stick in my memory. Hope you find this helpful - pls upvote 🙃
You need practice. Lots and lots of it. Try to learn on:
freeCodeCamp is also a good resource to learn to code and solving challenges. Kaggle is the place to go when you like machine learning.

After practice. Nah, just chill out turn off the computer screen and do something else like for about 10 - 15 mins and then come back to work. That is the best way for you brain to write the datas to it storges.
- Find a problem you are somewhat passionate about right now.
- Ask yourself if you might be able to solve that problem with code.
- Fail repeatedly in your quest.
- Find a bit of success.
- Congratulations, you are now a programmer.
Bonus 6th step: Realize that in doing this you've proven to yourself you could do anything with time and dedication.
@YvngBashit The way to do it is to apply those skills in a project like @minx28 said. If one topic is tricky , stay longer on this topic, or if you feel like the source of learning is too hard, try a different source. A lot of people would recommend Codecademy. Videos are definitely a hard way to learn a language and it might be advisable to get something more interactive, such as a book, or an interactive online course.
