Why is it so important to program??

I’d like to start with my favourite quote from Steve Jobs

We are living in a Digital World surrounded by gadgets like laptops, desktops, phones, tablets, etc., and have been fortunate enough to explore apps like Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, WhatsApp, etc. Today we can easily communicate, share/re-share our opinions/thoughts/sentiments across the world.

If our generation knows how to program or code then they can easily showcase their ideas and talent to the world and can contribute to the growth of the nation’s success. They use trending technologies like Machine Learning, IoT, Data Science, Web Development, and way more other technologies that students can use.

Now the question arises What steps are needed to follow to make a career in Computer Science?
  1. First, learn to program by learning a programming language (it can be C++ or Java or Python). By doing this you will become familiar with their syntax.

  2. Then learn Data structure and algorithms. This will help you to enhance your logical and critical thinking capabilities.

    Firstly let’s try baby steps :

    • Try to solve the problem with different methods.
    • Being mindful of different methods to approach while solving the problem (Dynamic programming, recursion, iteration, etc.) and considering the time complexity and space complexity
    • Use OOPs concepts like exception handling, abstraction, polymorphism, etc.

  3. There are several websites available to learn and grow like GeeksforGeeks, HackerRank, HackerEarth, Codeforces, CodeChef, LeetCode, and others, which will help you to enhance your knowledge and problem-solving skills.

  4. The above process will need time, dedication, effort, and patience.


  5. Problem-solving skills will eventually help you in your career development. Many product-based companies are looking for students who have good problem-solving skills.

    Companies like:

    • Google
    • Microsoft
    • Facebook
    • Amazon
    • Samsung
    • Walmart labs
    • Netflix
    • PayPal
    • Flipkart, and many more.

  6. Choose a domain that suits your interest, it will be like the icing on the cake, and then you will enjoy the process of learning.

    These are some suggestions which can help you to choose a domain:

    • Machine Learning

      Machine learning is one modern innovation that has helped humans enhance not only many industrial and professional processes but also advancing everyday living. Machine Learning is a subset of artificial intelligence, which focuses on using statistical techniques to build intelligent computer systems to learn from databases available to it. Currently, Machine Learning has been used in multiple fields and industries. For example, medical diagnosis, image processing, prediction, classification, learning association, regression, etc.

    • Cyber Security

      Cyber Security is the state or process of protecting, and recovering networks, devices, and programs from any type of cyber attack.

      Cyber attacks are an evolving danger to organizations, employees, and consumers. They may be designed to access or destroy sensitive data or extort money. They can, in effect, destroy businesses and damage your financial and personal lives — especially if you’re the victim of identity theft.

    • Web development

      Web development is the building and maintenance of websites; it’s the work that happens behind the scenes to make a website look great, work fast, and perform well with a seamless user experience.

    • Android Development

      Android software development is the process by which applications are created for devices running the Android operating system. Google states that “Android apps can be written using Kotlin, Java, and C++ languages” using the Android software development kit, while using other languages is also possible.

    • Cloud Computing

      Cloud Computing is the use of hardware and software to deliver a service over a network (typically the Internet). With cloud computing, users can access files and use applications from any device that can access the Internet.
