18. Embracing Institutional Learning

The day proved too packed for any studying, filled with my full-time job, a trip to the airport, and a swift return. Time slipped away from me.

Recently, I stumbled upon a blog post that boldly claimed learning coding through educational institutions was a waste—ineffective and costly. According to the author, self-study and frequent practice were the sole avenues to proficiency. However, I respectfully dissent from this viewpoint.

My personal experience within a coding institute has led me to value the guidance provided by live tutors and the enriching dynamics of learning alongside classmates. Learning from someone else requires humility—an acceptance of surrendering personal ego in favor of absorbing another’s knowledge and experience. It’s not about blind faith but rather acknowledging the importance of depending on external guidance to foster independent thinking in the long run.

This philosophy underpins my belief in the benefits of institutional learning. The structure, guidance, and direction provided by these institutions offer a systematic progression from basics to advanced concepts, theory to practical applications, and assignments to challenges. This structured approach contrasts with the potential ad hoc nature of self-study, lacking corrective measures or guidance to ensure proper learning methodologies.

Moreover, not everyone comfortably fits into the self-study mold, especially when tackling the complexity of coding. Some individuals require consistent support and encouragement—an aspect often provided within the institutional learning environment.

Lastly, the financial investment in educational institutions cannot be ignored. The act of paying fees often instills a sense of commitment, motivating individuals to dedicate themselves wholeheartedly to maximize the value of their expenditure.

In conclusion, my perspective aligns with the belief that for a serious pursuit of knowledge, enrolling in an institution and committing wholeheartedly to the learning process is a valuable choice.
