Learning a new programming language can seem like a challenging task. However, as it is with all types of learning, there are certain techniques and practices that will help you learn the programming language faster and more efficiently.

During my entire programmer career I've been confronted with situations that made me develop some practices that would help me learn new programming languages faster.

In the beginning of my career I thought that reading books from cover to cover was the best way to learn a new language. Damn, how I was wrong. As I started to develop and create Pluralsight courses, I had to find a way to learn new programming languages fast, since this was exactly what I was doing.

As you’re learning the new programming language, ask yourself the two vital tradeoff questions:

- Do I really want to learn this language bad enough to actually learn this language?
- Can I afford the time and energy needed to get good at sucking in this programming language?

In this video, I'll share with you my strategies for learning a new programming language fast!
