Procrastinate your procrastination. That’s my favourite saying. Start learning what you want to learn without waiting for anyone. Series of tutorials are on YouTube, udemy, and much more.

5. Ask questions

No man knows all likewise myself, I make use of StackOverflow, and Google to get solutions to my problems. I ask my fellow programmers most times on ways I can approach or tackle a problem and I get an aid. Don’t be shy to ask questions, ask a lot of questions because you’ll learn a lot from asking questions.

Why not give these 5 points a try and see how it goes. You can have your cert in other fields and still progress massively as a programmer. Do well and don’t forget to procrastinate your procrastination.
