tips to imrove coding

I have received many quires on how can I improve my coding skills, is there any way to code more efficiently, I am not good at problem-solving skills.So, I decided to post some advanced tips to code like a pro indeed. First of all, I want to make it very clear that there are no shortcut ways to improve your coding skills, you have to practice and think about coding all day. That was the first tip from me.
Yes, I know that thinking about coding all day is not an easy task, you have to make your mind focused on one task at a time and proceed. Now let me discuss some tips to stay focused on coding every day. So stay with me.

Advance tips to improve coding skills like a pro.

1. Start with one language and mastering it.

c language



In my case I started with C and studied it for two years when I was compleating my graduation I studied on data structures with c and the basic programming with c that made be quite an efficient coder to easily get started with other languages C is the most basic programming language and I recommend you should start with that and then move to java if you want to learn C++ then it is a vast concept and mastering C++ is not an easy task in my opinion mastering any language is not possible in 1 or 2 months you have to continuesly stay focus and work on to improve your skills.

2. Solve coding problems.

First of all, you have to find some coding problems from your textbook and try to solve them on your own, and later if you failed, check google for a solution but what if you didn't find any think on google then go to Stackoverflow.com and don't hesitate to express your code problem clearly.
StackOverflow is a place where all beginners to advance programmer hangout to hone up their coding skills. You will definitely find one answer to your question. But note you cant ask every question on StackOverflow, if you code is not working or giving errors then you should ask. if your code has some syntax error you should not ask these type of question on StackOverflow. Rather you should go to some tutorial website and learn the basics properly and try to find your answer from there.Now If your program is giving output but your output is not what you were expecting then you should not ask on StackOverflow instead you should go to Code review another stack exchange site.

3. Reddit forums for knowledge.

As the title says join Reddit forums on a coding section like Ask_programming and try to be active all the time and solve coding quires of other peoples. or try to ask you query there if you want. The Reddit community is very helpful.


4. Read Programming books.

Reading is the only way to improve your skills, it may be reading an article or a book reading is the best approach to hone up your problem-solving skills what you will get with reading is incomparable with any video tutorial. yes, I agree that we get more clarity on the concept rather reading but on the other hand, it is also right to say that you will not get every problem explained as a video for you. So you have to improve your reading and understanding level so that you can acquire knowledge from anywhere. I have listed some of the most trusted books you should follow and trust me you won't regret buying them.

6. Pseudocode approach

Every time you code it gets easier to understand the problem when you make a step by step approach toward your goal that is what we call pseudocode. basically what you do is before implementing your code in the code window what you do is you take a piece of paper and write the logic on how you will achieve the final goal. For example, you want to find the largest number in the array. 
pseudocode will be like.

Here are the few basic steps that would be involved:
1) Store the numbers in an array; arr[10]
2) Initialize i to 0
3) Compare arr and arr[i+1]
4) If arr > arr[i+1], then arr[i + 1] = arr
5) Increment i and go to step 2
6) At the end of the loop, the largest number is ***** in arr[i+1] 

it will make your problem easy to understand and boost your problem-solving skills.

7. Take part in code competition.

You should take part in coding competitions whenever you get a change may be in your college or school. Every technical institute host such competition to hunt young talent. take part in hackathons or google code jam challenge.if you think that you are capable of competing in some high-level coding competitions then check out these sites.
