This post is also very helpful for those, who just have basic computer skills, and want to upgrade. Also good for small business owners, professionals to learn advanced computer skills after the basics of computers.
Any kind of professional can learn these advanced computer skills. And can develop and get the benefits of information technology in their career.
Learning new things is one of the greatest habits to grow in career and business. And when it’s about computers and information technology then it’s very important. No matter what you do or willing to do. You need consistent improvement in your technical skills. And due to Internet online learning, online courses and degree programs best suited for almost everyone.
So, let’s get started:
1. Programming Skills:
Programming is advanced and most demanding computer skills. You can learn these skills just after 10+2 or college degrees. But it’s very well suited to learn to program, after completing the basic computer course.
Programming is technical skills, but it’s also a tool. Let’s understand how programming is beneficial to you in examples, after a basic computer course or during your degree or job.
1.) If you’re doing CA/CS degree/Diploma then learning programming skills, help you to build the next inventory software/apps. Similarly, if you’re in the medical profession, you can build apps/applications and medical tools. If you’re in mechanical engineering, you can create program/software to handle complex diagrams into the easiest method.
2.) If you have completed a basic computer course, then programming is one of the best skills that you can learn, if you like or if you communicate with people logically. I mean if you like to do things with logic.
Learning HTML/CSS/JAVA/Python/C syntax is not a programming. Programming is about creation, management, distribution of logic into an application. That solves thousands of users’ problems with logics.
There is always a demand for good computer programmers and you can become an expert in programming within 1-2 years, while you’re doing a job or doing any kind of degree.
No matter you’re interested or not, but you can use your free time to learn programming skills. Don’t think right now, how it will be beneficial. First, learn about it, then you will automatically get the ideas about the benefits.
You can say, there are already thousands of programs. Why we will build?
Never think like this. It’s not about what is already in the market. Think, what you want to build and promote in the market. Business, career, and profession are all about innovation and expansion.
If you fail, then it’s much better than success. It’s because you will learn new things and actual things that can make you successful in your career, profession, and business.
After that, you can say, how we will earn money from the creation?
People are ready to pay you if you’re solving their problems. It can be related to education, entertainment, health, environment, and innovation.
First, learn to create something that you also love or your kids love to enjoy and play. Just do it for fun. And don’t think to earn money.
You will earn more than others if you think to solve problems.
How to start?
Start with a simple basic website by using WordPress. You can create and run your own blog.
After this try to learn to create web applications. You can learn HTML/CSS/Java/Python and many other JQuery libraries. Create an application that people like to use daily or that solve particular problems.
Now, after all, create a mobile app that people can use on mobile and it’s for the general public.
Once you do and create something you will learn programming skills faster than any other method.
But you also have to do a few basic programming courses to start.
For example, if spend 3 years in the above things during college or while in the job, you will grow a skill. Now programming skills make you capable to do innovative works. And you can go big with it.
