Why Is Programming So Difficult?

A lot of people get excited while they get started learning to code. 😍 They expect themselves to become an expert just by watching a tutorial or two. So they find some tutorials online, complete them and then realize that they are getting nowhere. 😓

At this moment, they are not even able to build a website or an app. 😢
They give up saying, I am not smart enough, or It is too hard for me. But that’s not necessarily true. Coding isn’t hard. It just requires a lot of time and practice. ⏰

To become a web developer, you need to make a website, not just write HTML tags. To become an app developer, you need to create an app, not just construct Java objects. Do you see the pattern? 🎯

Most coding courses or camps do not cover these things, so people get frustrated and give up. The reason you might think it is hard is that you are not getting the results. 🥵


To develop your coding skills, you cannot just mindlessly follow instructions from a tutorial. You must take charge and start making. 😄

So that is it for this blog!

Thank you! I hope you learned a lot.
