How I began to learn about new technologies - and how my fear of missing out overpowered my fear of failure

For me, the desire to explore new technologies started when I begin to work with SharePoint to help my team have a central place to access documents. However, the relative ease of use SharePoint had encouraged me to explore other areas of technology that had previously been intimidating to me. I've set up a learning plan to incorporate new skills so that I can become a better netizen.

A beginner looking to learn how to use Power Apps can start by exploring Microsoft's own learning resources, which offer guided tutorials and documentation. Engaging with the Power Apps community through forums and user groups can provide support and insights. Additionally, beginners should practice by starting with simple app templates and gradually progressing to more complex projects, while taking advantage of the wide range of online courses and training videos available. Experimentation and hands-on experience are key to gaining proficiency in Power Apps.

A beginner eager to understand Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) will find a wealth of knowledge through free online courses. These resources often start with the basics, explaining what APIs are and how they function as the building blocks for connecting software and services. As learners progress, they can explore how to consume APIs in different programming environments and understand the protocols and methods involved, such as REST and SOAP. Interactive platforms and hands-on projects enhance learning, making the abstract concepts of API integration tangible and comprehensible. With dedication and curiosity, beginners can swiftly move from theory to practice, unlocking the potential to innovate in the digital landscape.

For those just venturing into the world of Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and wanting to master the art of writing impactful meta descriptions, platforms like Coursera offer a wide selection of courses tailored for beginners. Taught by industry experts, these courses cover fundamental SEO principles, the importance of keyword research, and strategic placement within meta tags to improve search engine visibility. In addition to theoretical understanding, they offer practical exercises that guide learners through optimizing actual web pages, ensuring they acquire the skills necessary to craft meta descriptions that captivate and convert.

For novices in the coding world, Java presents itself as one of the most user-friendly programming languages to learn first. Its object-oriented structure and widespread community support make it the go-to language for many beginners. Free Java courses are plentiful on the internet, providing comprehensive tutorials that cover the fundamental concepts, syntax, and programming paradigms. These courses often include hands-on exercises to build practical skills, ranging from basic applications to more complex systems. Moreover, the robust documentation and active forums that accompany Java programming facilitate a supportive learning environment, enabling newcomers to troubleshoot their challenges and enhance their coding proficiency without financial barriers.

Coursera was a great place to start for me, but GitHub may be a good place to test API for the first time, and I expect to be visiting other sites as well. Stay tuned!
