Welcome to my website!
Hello! My name is Prabigya and my in-depth this year was programming. Basically, most of my time was spent learning some material, trying to apply said material into a product of my own, and then failing because a syntax error occured or the result ended up being not what I had intended. But that's alright! Because through trial and error, I eventually made things work. Sometimes, I couldn't exactly pinpoint why something worked but the important thing is that it did. From there, I investigated the error, and often found the source of the problem. And I think that's the best way to learn any kind of skill. We learn better when we try to do the skill rather than if we learn about it.
"hey prabigya, what was your journey like?"
I'm glad you asked!
At first, I didn't know what language I wanted to program in. All I knew was that I wanted to program for in-depth. My reasoning for this was because I knew it would be useful information for the future, and simply because I was interested. At the time, I had heard that learning how to automate or program computers to do something can help anyone in their life. For example, you can automate things like uploading videos to youtube, organizing and backing-up files, taking notes, and so much more. Specifically, I had heard this regarding Python. When I heard that a friend of mine basically did Python as his job, I asked him if he could mentor me for In-Depth. He said yes (Thank you again James) and I started on my journey.
