How to improve coding skills ?

Now a days you should have good coding skills  to get a job as a software developer. Almost every software company conduct  coding round during campus placement when it goes to recruit the students in engineering colleges. Here in this post I am telling about some preferred resources to learn coding which are mostly used all over the world.

Recently it has been found in a survey that 1/3rd Indian software developers are self taught .  Most of Indian developers learn  code through the websites like YouTube, Github, satckoverflow and some other online resources. Students are also learning coding from these resources. They are not dependent on educational institutes to learn coding skills. As high as 70 per cent of around 3,700 Indian developers surveyed recently said they had taught themselves how to code, either exclusively, or in addition to school. And 33 per cent (around 1,217 developers) said they were exclusively self-taught, without any academic help.

This survey, done globally among 40,000 developers across 42 countries, and the survey was conducted by talent evaluation company HackerRank.  HackerRank is a technical hiring platform that helps most of the software organizations to evaluate software developers based on skill. It has a leader board that hosts talented coders with a live score board that gets updated on a real time basis. Most industry biggies, including Amazon, LinkedIn, Quora and Facebook, keep an eye on this leader board to hire the best of coders across the globe.

Stack Overflow, an online community of developers to code and learn, was the most popular platform to learn coding, with over 70 per cent of Indian developers and students choosing it (over 8,000 deveopers and students were surveyed for this). This was followed by YouTube. MOOCs (massive open online courses) like Udemy, Udacity, Coursera, and online tutorial websites like Pluralsights and Lynda were also more popular than books among students trying to learn coding.
