Hello Socratica Friends! We’re here to help you be a great student! Do you want to be a Programmer? Hoping to get a job in IT? Are you interested in studying Computer Science, but you don’t know where to start? Today on our Study Tips series, we have a special guest, Ulka Simone Mohanty, who you might know from our Python series. Ulka studied Computer Science in college, and is a web developer (among her many talents). Ulka will give us some great advice about how to study Programming.
Join Liliana and Ulka as they discuss how to get started in computer science. You may be surprised to hear how much you can learn on your own! Ulka gives some great practical advice about how to learn this very practical subject!
Do you have another piece of advice how to get started in programming? Let us know in the comments!
