Beginner Questions need help asap

by parker7d7 / February 21, 2015 11:13 AM PST

Just had a few questions I had as a beginner and someone who is hoping to become well versed as an app developer

1) How should I begin my "journey" -in short--I know its a very general question but all answers given is appreciated

2) Are there any books, videos, interactive websites you would suggest to aid me in the learning process?

3) How do I make the transitition frmo beginner-to intermediate-to professional? Through constant practice that will be learned from doing--or from from constant learning that will be attained through reading,videos etc?---is there a "best" way that worked for you that you would suggest?

Thanks for all answers

As to item, so much today it's about enough time to watch

Item 2 is all about getting on the web and refining your search phrases. You could start with How to learn Android programming.

Mind you would have to have some, in fact any programming background. I've seen a few blow up right there.

I see about 40% of my IT students reaching the status of 'beginning professional' (getting a function as 'junior engineer' or such) after 4 years of studying at the university. The other 60% fail before that time.

I'm sure you are seeing a few that think all this can be condensed into a 2 week course.

May I add you never stop learning.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
