People have to start doing CP and to be precise not only start but should do it consistently because that only going to show you the results.

Here the Journey of CP is bifurcated in steps So, that you can reach to your destined/desired destination.

STEP 1:-

Learn any one language [C, C++, Python, Java]. I would personally prefer C++ (because of its fast compilation time and widely used language in CP].

From where to do it?

  • You can take Old convention path of learning from books like Let Us Learn C++ but I wouldn’t recommended this.
  • See the below video of C++ tutorial, you would go fine.

But wait guys just take this advice of mine that you can’t master the all syntax of C++ in one go, So just learn the basic syntax and understand their meaning and do procced with the next step without wasting much time on this. Just make sure you learn basic syntaxes for output, input, loop etc,
