How quick can you learn how to code?
Seen a couple of jobs recently that require “light” coding skills but otherwise I’m a good candidate for. Like Python maybe? I’ve heard that’s “easy” to learn. I’ve known several non-tech people tell me they were able to learn it

If you have a decent technical aptitude you'll be able to pick it up. If not you'll probably struggle with it

re: How quick can you learn how to code?
I work with software developers every day so I have aptitude for technical stuff, and I met briefly one guy who had the exact job of one of the positions the job and he was a music major.....

I’m thorough but I don’t think mathematically....

I just finished two semesters of C++ and I don't have any idea what I'm doing.

re: How quick can you learn how to code?
I've messed around with just some very basic coding. It seemed pretty intuitive and logical for me. I think it's one of those things that's easy to pick up the basics, but the ceiling in terms of skill level is sky high. My general impressions at least.

I learned C++ when I was around 15 years old.

I say that not to brag, but to let you know that if 15 year old me can make video games as a hobby, you can learn to make scripts for your job.

Go to Khanacademy.org

Amazing website that has thousands of videos intended to educate anyone in just about any topic you can learn up to college level stuff and beyond.

They have section on coding and even a video that teaches you the basics in an hour.

Not that hard if you have the right mind for it. If you can program in one language you can in any. Just takes learning the syntax. How fast you are and your troubleshooting skills is what makes you good or bad.

You can learn pretty much any coding on YouTube if you put your mind to it.

I’ve learned 90% of what I know in Excel via YouTube. The syntax is different but the premise is still the same.

I understand that it’s theorem based as you add variables. I think I could be very good at some aspects of it because I am thorough. I have designed functionality for systems before.

Could you join a 12 week coding class and see how well you like it?

re: How quick can you learn how to code?
Python is really easily to learn. It's all the add ons that will take time.

It's takes a certain type of person to code and do and good job.

You have to be strong in logic and be slightly ocd to be good.

Learn standard coding practices, indentations rules etc. and be sure to always comment the hell out of your code.



My best recommendation is code academy.

I know C++/R/SAS/Ruby/Matlab/Fortran/winbugs

Took me grad school to learn SAS/Fortran, one semester undergrad to learn Matlab, self taught myself R in a couple of months, same with C++...

Took me a year or so for winbugs.
