Try to build something new every day. Watch tutorial, documentation and read some blogs and stay up to date with the technology trends. We are in the age of technology now. Every single day a new technology is coming up.

Think Twice, Code Once

Think twice code once

A programmer spends 80% time in thinking for the solution and 20% for the real coding. Don't just do coding as soon as you get the problem, think about it, think about the most efficient solution.

The solution to a problem is an idea that comes from your own brain – your code is how you implement that idea. Remember that you need to come up with the solution first, and then find the best way to implement that solution through clean coding.

Don’t Be Afraid to Ask for Help or to Help People Back

You’re going to progress much faster and learn more if you get into the habit of keeping a deep curiosity of how things work. Join open-source community, facebook groups, discord server.
Don't be afraid to ask for help. May be something is hard for you easy for someone else and something is easy for you. So ask for help and help people back.

Remember: You still have a life

If you study a Computer Science degree, it may seem pretty daunting as you'll need to learn more, study more, do more. But don’t forget to live your life.

Your studies are important, but they shouldn’t be the only thing in your life. Going out and having fun will refresh your mind and increase your grades. Relax, have fun, and good luck!
