Why is it that every time I try to learn code (html or c++) I FAIL at it and mess everything up. :( (why is coding so hard because it seems impossible) PS why is touch typing too hard as well

    Learn basic C. Then take on C++. But HTML is quite easy it isn't that hard at all. HTML5 resources: http://www.w3schools.com/html/html5_intro.asp

    I tried to learn c or something and all that happened is it ended up FORMATTING my computer. HTML is too hard because I can't remember everything i was taught about it in some class. my main problem is that i cannot remember all of the basics for some reason :(

    Well, that doesn't help me at all because I tried to learn coding and it is too HARD I literally don't understand it.

    paste code for link. paste code for header. paste basic codes. edit them. Started learning it that way... then boom! Learned everything since then with ease.

    yes but i want to STOP looking at other peoples code because when i copy things it always ends up being glitchy (and i really wanted to learn c and linux anyway)

    my whole point is that i can never remember all of the commands or syntax and i want to know why it is too HARD to learn it

    Learning programming languages is just like learning other languages like french, chinese, italian etc. The more you read, practice and learn, the better you get. Different people learn different languages at different rates. You just have to keep practicing writin very small programs or web pages until you are comfortable with that and then move on to slightly bigger projects and repeat.

    I'm not sure how old you are, how many times you've tried, or how hard you've tried. People talk about things being hard. Often they just mean the thing is work. Things like calculus, things like programming, are often the first thing a student runs into that is really work to learn. If you do the work, you will get it. It could be many hours of work. People (who don't do this kind of work) often think that people who do (this kind of work) are "smart" or "it's easy for them". This is rarely the case. Usually it's just doing the work.
