When first learning programming in java it can be hard to grasp the java programming basics needed to become a competent coder.

I get it.

I was (and still am) a beginner to coding and I struggled heavily in the beginning to make progress.

Eventually, I stuck through the process and learned Java basics in 1 month and Android development in 2 months with a program called Team Treehouse...

...but I made a lot of mistakes along the way.

This post will be about the 3 biggest mistakes I made when first learning to code and how you can avoid them.

Here are the 3 most common mistakes that beginners make when they are first learning Java and Android Development:

1.) Neglecting Existing Libraries

As a beginner to coding, you should use all the resources available to you...

A library, in programming terms, is a collection of code that is often consolidated to perform a very specific task.

These are basically "done-for-you" programs that perform tasks to solve problems

Libraries are often open-source (open and free to the world to reproduce, modify, and distribute)

So, the biggest point about libraries is that they offer existing and proven solutions to problems/challenges coders face.

This can be relating to handling images, network communications in an app....anything.

Why solve a problem that has already been solved and tested by thousands of people?

Here's what's great about libraries:

-They are easy to implement
-They solve problems effectively
-They save you the time and struggle of making a weak solution to an already-solved problem
-On top of not using libraries, beginners to programming are often found...

2.) Not Using Cheap/Free Resources

Learning to code doesn't have to be expensive...
While I personally don't recommend using only free resources to learn coding, it can be very beneficial to learn programming from free sources

Things like:

YouTube Videos
Free Programming Online Courses
Local Classes
There are thousands of free resources online that you can use.

Information these days can be found anywhere online and it's your job to go out there and access that knowledge.

Although I can say that paying for courses has these advantages:

-You get quality instruction that is comprehensive
-You get premium support and access to forums as member of most online code schools
-All the information you need is in one place
-You get much more depth into your respective topic

I personally have been a member of Team Treehouse for years and I don't regret a dime I've spent.

Finally, the most common (and damaging) things that new coders neglect are...
