The Self-taught Programmer: The Definitive Guide to by Cory Althoff

By Cory Althoff

I'm a self-taught programmer. After a yr of self-study, I realized to application good sufficient to land a task as a software program engineer II at eBay. as soon as I bought there, i spotted i used to be significantly under-prepared. i used to be beaten through the quantity of items i wished to understand yet hadn't realized but. My trip studying to software, and my event at my first task as a software program engineer have been the foundation for this e-book.

This publication isn't just approximately studying to software; even though you'll learn how to code. so one can software professionally, it's not adequate to profit to code; for this reason, as well as supporting you learn how to application, I additionally disguise the remainder of the belongings you want to know to application professionally that sessions and books do not train you. "The Self-taught Programmer" is a roadmap, a advisor to take you from writing your first Python application, to passing your first technical interview. I divided the booklet into six sections:

1. discover ways to application in Python three and construct your first application.
2. examine Object-oriented programming and create a strong Python application to get you hooked.
3. learn how to use instruments like Git, Bash, common expressions and databases. Then use your new coding abilities to construct an online scraper.
4. research laptop technology basics together with laptop structure, facts constructions, algorithms and community programming.
5. learn how to application for construction: I disguise the software program improvement method, checking out, and most sensible coding practices.
6. end with suggestions for operating with a workforce and touchdown a programming job.

You CAN learn how to application professionally. the trail is there. Will you're taking it?
