Every single day, we're swamped with choices.
But here's the kicker: When you're in the tech world, the choices never stop coming.
About a decade ago, I got into tech. I just knew it was the place for me, and I didn't hesitate. As a complete newbie and fresh out of high school, I had a lot of questions and no manual for answers.
What's the best way to start in programming? Where should I even begin? What types of jobs are out there? With a zillion options, I had to lean on something solid — logic and common sense.
First steps in coding
Choose your language wisely
Get the right guidance
Stepping into 2023, one thing's clear:
The old-school, one-size-fits-all approach to tech education is outdated.
With the tech landscape constantly changing, you need resources that are as agile as the industry itself. And that's where Next.js comes in. It offers out-of-the-box features like static site generation and server-side rendering.
It doesn't just stop there. Next.js is part of the Vercel ecosystem, which means you get features like continuous deployment from git, serverless functions, and much more, all tied up in a neat bow. So your learning isn't just about coding; it's about understanding the full development cycle.
So, what's the plan? Remember, choices in coding are a constant. It's a balancing act between intuition and well-informed decisions. Keep that learning curve steep and you're golden.
Oh, and while you're at it, consider blogging about your journey on Hashnode. It's not just about logging what you know; it's about solidifying your understanding, getting noticed for job opportunities, and sharing your new skills with friends and our community members who are just starting. How cool is that? 😉
