1. Practice As Often As You Can
The key to retaining new knowledge and building your programming skills quickly is a regular practice. You should try and practice writing code every day if you can, or at least as often as possible. It doesn't matter if the only time you have is five minutes before bed - even just reading through a few pages of notes can help reinforce your coding knowledge. You can use BitDegree's Code Editor for that.
2. Take Good Notes!
A lot of people fall into the trap of working their way through online courses without taking any notes. This is a terrible idea. Not only does note-taking give you something to look back on when you need to revise, but taking detailed notes can help you learn better and can help reinforce new ideas and concepts.

4. Take Note Of Best Practices
The worst thing that you can do as a programming beginner is to pick up bad habits. Make sure that you're always following coding best practices - such as leaving the right white space and adding comments regularly - otherwise, you will almost certainly run into problems in the future.
