How To Learn More About IT, Even if You're a Beginner - Finnegan Pierson - Blog

How To Learn More About IT, Even if You're a Beginner

You might be frustrated with computers right now. If you're like most people, there is a love-hate relationship between technology and mankind, and the reasons are pretty apparent. Sometimes, the computer just doesn't do what you want it to do, or it's extremely slow. But like it or not, computers, software, and information technology is the way of the future, and people everywhere should learn more about it or be left in the dust.

However, even for younger audiences, IT can be a bit intimidating, especially since it's changing all the time. You could learn about an IT concept today, but tomorrow, there are updates. Newer technologies are invented every day, and if you went to school about to learn about programming a couple of years ago, it could be that the programming language you learned is now outdated. But learning about IT doesn't have to be complicated, and if you want to get a slight grip on these concepts, there are ultimately five routes that you can take.

Read a Book About IT

Why not read a book? First, there are millions of great books out there that offer a beginner's walk through the world of IT. Textbooks can even be a great help here. When reading a book about IT, it's best to read about 10-20 pages a day, so that you won't be overloaded with too much content about subjects that will be completely foreign to you, such as algorithms or an MLops definition. Read a book about IT, and you'll know more than a large number of other people.

Take an Online Course

Another great road to take to learn about IT is to take an online course. Many people don't realize it, but there are entire websites dedicated to offering online courses with modules, tests, and even certificates. These courses will walk you through the entire process using a knowledgeable instructor, and you can email this person if you have questions. You can take these courses from the comfort of your own home at your own pace. Come home from work and listen to one or two ten-minute classes.

Enroll in Junior College

Why not enroll in a junior college and earn your certificate or Associates' degree? This means that you don't have to go back to a university and get the whole college experience again, but a lot of local community colleges offer 6-month to two-year programs that will teach you just about everything you need to know about the basics of IT. It's a great way to learn quickly and make friends, and you can also do this online.

Read One or Two Online Articles

You could also enjoy some online articles filled with information about IT. If you go this route and choose to learn IT from a random Joe online, it's best to limit yourself to about one or two sources, because if you don't, you'll just get an information overload. You'll get hundreds of different ideas and definitions about tons of different IT subjects, and you'll be drowning in confusion. It's best to find a couple of great sources from people that you like, and choose to religiously sit at their feet to learn, and only their feet.

Embrace and Use IT More

Last, learn to embrace IT and technology more and use it more often. When people don't understand something, they generally stay away from it. But sometimes, the best way to learn about a topic is through a hands-on approach, and this means that you'll have to get your hands on some IT and experience it for yourself. There's no better way than to grab a computer or laptop, use it, and learn some of its more advanced features.

Learning about IT can be simplified and doesn't have to be intimidating. In the end, you simply learn about it the way you would learn anything else. As you begin to embrace it, have fun with IT and realize its possibilities.
