Top-6-websites-to-learn-computer-programming.JPG Computer programming is a trend in Nigerian technology space, as there seems to be increased interest in it.

There are different means to learn programming, which includes learning at ICT companies, learning from friends who are programmers, virtual learning etc.The cost of learning programming especially in ICT companies are are most a times expensive here in Nigeria and this seems to discourage a lot of youths from deep diving into computer programming.

So, I'll be talking on virtual learning which is a cost effective means of learning programming and I'll also list few highly rated websites we can learn from.

VIRTUAL LEARNING


Virtual learning refers to face-to-face online teaching with the aid of a device such as laptops, tablets, smart phones etc. It can be in a video format, text format or audio format.

I personally think it's a less expensive means which Nigerian youths can explore in learning computer programming because all that is required in most virtual learning classes is a working device like laptop with an Internet connection.
