About computers and being good at coding...

  1. Oct 16, 2016 #1
    i wanted to know how to become computer king of world if we have coding talent
    like making cool apps,software,making technical software machines like robotics.

    can we become computer king by challenging bill gates
    like what they did to world
    we can do in 1 day
    not by copying but following standard pattern

    Computer Queen of World would be just as cool.

    What do you mean, what could be done in just one day?

    it is predicted in future in everything in 21 st century will run on coding
    education system,cars we can see our movies,entertainment anywhere in world.
    we can make run everything run on just single i phone 6 all movies,internet,games,coding,all computer sysystem fitted

    why we cannot fit high level language fit inside computer no need of compiler in digital world
    we can make change by robotics

    that can be done in 1 day by using basic skills,fundamentals creativity,design and building

    Don't you realize that a fraction of the world doesn't have electricity or access to clean water? That means you need to hurry up and ensure that all people at least have electricity to power those electronics before making it big on your idea! Not everyone in the world has access to education, cars, movies, phones, or computers either- you might want to catch them up on the basics before you go helping people that really don't need an extra app on their phone.

    yes but for changing technology we need people how do we get people by selection
    or providing coding job opportunities .
    they can learn learn code from code academy,code.org,code school
    we can make cheap app for teaching people code
    when they learn code they can create technology learn computational thinking,solving problems like hopscotch,scratch
    thus world can be changed by coding
    as coding is a super power

    Sure, it's easy:
    Step 1: Think of a hundred billion dollar idea.
    Step 2: Program it.
    Step 3: Profit!

    I'm working on mine right now!

    There are many possible ways of getting to the top in computing, but as well as a keen eye for opportunity you will need a lot of hard work to either master the technical skills yourself or to recruit and lead a team to help you towards your goal. There are a few overnight wonders - www.milliondollarhomepage.com was one of the best, literally programmed over a weekend, but most modern success stories have taken a lot of planning and hard work to build up the user base.
    Another common theme is that the software or services are often provided for free for several years with no income: Google, Linux, Facebook. The income often only becomes possible once you have the market saturation.

    Unless you have a particular talent for design and/or marketing I would suggest picking the area which interests you most and dedicate as much time as it takes to master it and stay focussed on your goal.

    What computer languages do you program in now? C, Python, Tcl/Tk, Java, etc.? What are the best programs you have coded up so far? :smile:
