Learning Python again: A small step towards the big idea

Hello, so it's been a while since I updated my blog!

Well, am learning python all over again. But wait, being a 3rd year student and now knowledgeable of Java, C and other programming languages, why should I go and learn my Year 1, Computer Programming module, which consists of Python, again?

Well, the reason is simple, I've forgotten Programming, or let me say I do not have enough practice with it nowadays and that is the worse thing I believe can happen to a computer Science student who's going to graduate soon! I am not in touch with programming since nearly 4 months now! The reason: I have opted for mostly theoretical electives/modules this semester!

Moreover, the main reason is I want to become a web and a mobile application developer. I have some major projects in head, but, without a sound  knowledge and a good programming skills, I cannot become so or at least proceed. So, I'm 'refining' my programming skills.

It requires lots of hard work to be successful, and you need to be perfect or at least near perfect in what you do to be successful! I know my future projects, which are IT related, would require programming at large, so why not start trying perfecting (I know nobody can be perfect at programming!) my programming skills.

The learning stage doesn't stop with python though. I have been away from Java too, unfortunately! After python, java comes next. I really need good Java programming skills to build android apps. After Java, is Web design and development. I need  to revise the Web Technologies modules. And also learn new things apart from that since we have now HTML 5 and CSS 3 which were not included in the module at the time I was doing Web Tech.

Well, there is lots of hard work to do! And, let's be positive and think that 'Hard Work Pays Off!' like it did for many!

Some quotes:

I hated every minute of training, but I said, 'Don't quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.'
- Muhammad Ali

“I'm a greater believer in luck, and I find the harder I work the more I have of it”
- Thomas Jefferson

“Don't wish it were easier. Wish you were better.”
- Jim Rohn

“Belief means nothing without actions”
- Randa Abdel-Fattah

Thank you and see you soon!
