your last or second last semester. In training. In your very first job.
These are the times and places when one should build his/her
foundations. This is the time when basic building blocks are laid.
For me in the whole of the last semester I improved my c skills.
Everyday I aimed to write one c program. Everyday I explored a c book
for at least 30 mins
Similarly in training, apart from the work assigned to me, I expanded
my knowledge base in all the software tools available to me. Everyday
one hour was devoted to learn something new.
I am using none of those softwares now, nor the c programming language
but still the foundations, the concepts, the skills they imparted me
are helping me in my daily work today.
The wide base that I covered in my initial years is helping me grasp,
learn and build up on that foundation.
So if you are at this stages, buckle up and start laying a solid, wide
foundation. Don't worry what software you learn or which programming
language you choose, the important point is to start doing it everyday
