How-To: Code

Coding is the process of creating instructions for a computer to perform a specific task. The language you choose to use depends on what you want to achieve, as different programming languages are suited to different types of tasks. Here is a general guide to getting started with coding:

1. Choose a Programming Language:
* Popular languages for beginners include Python, JavaScript, and Ruby.
* Python is often recommended for its readability and versatility.
* JavaScript is essential for web development.
* Choose a language based on your goals and the type of applications you want to build.

2. Set Up Your Development Environment:
* Install a code editor like Visual Studio Code, Atom, or Sublime Text.
* Install the necessary tools and libraries for your chosen language.

3. Learn the Basics:
* Familiarize yourself with basic programming concepts such as variables, data types, control structures (if statements, loops), and functions.
* Understand how to use the syntax of your chosen language.

4. Practice Regularly:
* Coding is a skill that improves with practice. Solve coding challenges on platforms like LeetCode, HackerRank, or CodeSignal.
* Work on small projects to apply what you've learned.

5. Read Documentation:
* Learn to navigate and use documentation effectively. Documentation provides information about the functions and libraries in a programming language.

6. Understand Version Control:
* Learn the basics of version control systems like Git. This allows you to track changes in your code and collaborate with others.

7. Build Projects:
* Apply your skills by working on real-world projects. This can be a website, a mobile app, a game, or any other software application.
* Projects help you solidify your understanding and create a portfolio.

8. Collaborate and Seek Feedback:
* Join coding communities and forums to connect with other learners and experienced developers.
* Share your code and seek feedback. Learning from others is an excellent way to improve.

9. Stay Updated:
* The tech industry evolves rapidly. Stay informed about new tools, frameworks, and best practices.

10. Take Online Courses or Attend Workshops:
* Online platforms like Codecademy, Coursera, edX, and others offer courses on various programming languages and topics.

Remember, coding is a skill that develops over time. Don't be afraid to make mistakes, and use them as learning opportunities. As you gain experience, you'll become more comfortable and proficient in coding.

Share: Money Game

Money game schemes, also known as 'Skim Cepat Kaya', are schemes dressed up as an investment-platform. They look legitimate but in fact they are illegal. Often, they falsely promise much higher interest rates, returns or profits to attract potential victims. They have no intention to uphold their promises. They seek to lure new victims. They use the new depositors' money to repay the earlier depositors. Eventually, these money game schemes will collapse and the depositors will lose their investments and money. Members of these money game schemes will approach the victims at various locations. They normally come with luxury cars to convince the victims. During sharing, they will emphasize someone to be successful after joining the investment scheme. Remember: * Only deposit and invest with parties licensed by the authorities. * When in doubt, check with Bank Negara Malaysia, the Securities Commission or other relevant authorities about a company before making any decision.

SSL stands for Secure Sockets Layer. It is the standard technology to keep an internet connection secure, safeguarding any sensitive data that is being sent between two systems, can be server to server or a server and a client, preventing criminals from reading and modifying any information transferred. SSL uses encryption algorithms to scramble data in transit, makes sure that any data transferred between users and sites, or between two systems remain impossible to read, preventing hackers from reading it as it is sent over the connection. TLS (Transport Layer Security) is an updated, more secure, version of SSL. Not only is TLS more secure and performant, most modern web browsers no longer support SSL 2.0 and SSL 3.0. While SSL is still the dominant term on the Internet, most people really mean TLS when they say SSL. HTTPS (Hyper Text Transfer Protocol Secure) appears in the URL when a website is secured by an SSL certificate. The details of the certificate, including the issuing aut
