Learning code can change your way of thinking. Coding is like magic. It will give your superpower and you can build many amazing things with it. Right now you are reading this blog from a website right? If there was no coding then it was impossible to make. Also, the device you are using is depending on programming. If you can make amazing hardware, if there is no programming included that it has no value in the end. So programming is really important.
I love programming because it makes me the creator. It gives me power. I can make my world of programming using my brain. I can simply make a website to connect people one with another. Dating is so easy now because of Tinder, which also made by programming. These things make me so fascinated with programming. The moment I start created programs I fall in love with programming. If you are already in programming, comment on the reason why you fall in love with programming.
In this tutorial, you’ll find to learn coding from zero and it’s free resources. You can just go through and learn the whole thing. I can’t exactly tell how much time you need to go through but honestly, nobody can tell you this. Because it depends on you. How much time you are giving every day and how fast you can understand each topic.
My advice will be first going through the basics then learn the advance topic. In the meantime build demo projects for learning. Learning through building projects is a really good idea.
The first step is learning about the computer and coding. You just need to know how a computer works and how you can do something using it. Now dig down any resource from down list and choose and finish what you like most. Also, you can look up to google for more resources.

Data Structures & Algorithms
After the data structure, the next step is working with the algorithm. This part is needed because here we build problem-solving skills. Problem-solving is the best part of programming. This gives up the power to solve anything. See some resources –

There are so many free resources online. I’ve just listed some. Everyone’s choice is different, so not every teacher will look like helpful to everyone. Just find your heroes and follow them. The last advice is to follow multiple heroes! A single person can’t know everything. Programming has no limits of learning so keep learning and keep learning from multiple sources.
