Hi everyone

I'm really passionate about BOTS and I want to know the fastest way to get to the level where I can make my own bots
Please tell me anything that can get me there, and how much time it takes

Start with online tutorials. read through them, experience them and go from there. Try making a project and use Google (Stackoverflow, Quora) to find answers and solutions to issues you are facing. A good place for guides, except for those you will find in Google, is Udemy (Which has free ones too). Good luck!

Depending on the complexity of the app (e. g. TikTok) it may take several months to break algorithms.

I would start with the basics like how to do proper HTTPS requests with PHP incl. cookie handling, REST, JSON.

You should also avoid browser emulations everywhere.

Pick a language you want to learn, -> web app = PHP/JS, -> scripts = Python. Challenge yourself, start small first and upgrade the challenges. Split an project into small steps, Google & Stackoverflow are your best friends when it comes to programming and solve those small steps till your bigger picture is finished, IMO that's the best way to learn.

The fastest way to learn programming? ??
Fortunate, this is one of the skills of which you can find very good tutorials and online courses for free on the internet.

YouTube is filled with 3+ hour-long tutorials and courses about many programming languages. So, learning the basics and fundamentals won´t be an issue.

On the other hand, programming is a "practical" skill and, therefore, the best (and fastest) way to get you in the profession is by actually BUILDING YOUR OWN PROJECTS!

So, depending on what programming language you´re looking to learn, I will bet you anything there´s a course about with tons of projects to build.

Ive made more than 10 developers in the time I had a software development agency.

The fastest way to learn is by doing something you are interested in, like really passionate about, and if you have a mentor that can guide you.

It can be a friend or you can apply to a newbie position in a dev agency, that will give a huge boost in your learning process.

Without a mentor or help - it will be much harder to learn and you should equip yourself with patience.

By going for bot programming you are almost setting up yourself for failure.
Companies especially social media companies have dedicated teams to fight against botters.
You will be dealing with angry customers all the time, as bots stop working all the time.
You can find plenty of tutorials online, so nothing special there that you have to do.
But if this is what you want to do then good luck!!

Thanks bro for your honesty
Actually I'm not interested in social media just the fun of monitoring and building stuff to do micro-tasks

Do not listen to bad advice.

Fighting against bots is an extremely hard task, yet fully impossible against private ones.

You will not need to deal with customers if you use them for yourself, its kinda bad idea to sell a unique bot for peanuts if you can use it by yourself.

Don't learn it by yourself from scratch. Learning the basics will be fine. But mastering it will take too long and your motivation will suffer from it. Also, its too complicated. Instead, buy or get yourself an existing code, figure out how this code works, and improve or customize the code

as others said, programming is a practical skill. watch a video or read a tutorial to learn the basics, and start building. if you need more videos, watch them with the code at the side so you can try the stuff you see. don't watch 70+ hours of videos without coding and convince yourself that you are putting in the effort; that's low effort thinking and is a classic trap for beginners. learning to code is stumbling and being uncomfortable as you are constantly learning new stuff and debugging your shitty code, so make peace with being uncomfortable. don't let this scare you, learning to push past your unconfort is a great skill to have

i am currently learning the very basics of html-css on https://learn.shayhowe.com/html-css/building-your-first-web-page/
i will move to javascript as soon as i have that done (javascript is whats used for webpages and web applications, great for landing a job. may not be what you are looking for if you want to automate stuff)
there is also the cs50, a beginner programming harvard class that's available for free in edx. it gives you a very good base on how stuff works, but is definitely not the fastest way. whatever learning resource you choose, code a little every day to lose the awkwardness. this is probably more important than choosing between odin and freecamp or whatever.

No problem , anytime, I saw some botters getting shitlisted , for example search of a botter called stuna.
So , I mean, follow your passion, I guess.

my advice would be just to start a project. you like bots so pick a problem you can solve with a bot and start googling. I take the point that social media companies are fighting against bots but doesn't that just make it more fun? you can spend hours doing tutorials and learn some useful stuff in the beginning but most problems don't play our like they do in the tutorials.

break down your tasks into smaller tasks, you'll usually find someone else has done something similar to what you need and go from there.

post on the forums if you need more help.

Good Luck.

codecademy is a good place to start you can learn basics in there for free. On the other hand Python is very popular when it comes to bots because of it's simplicity i think.

You just need to have a passion for it and keep going. May take abfew years to become a good programmer.

I learned it because i love to create things.
