What I've learned about programmingChilds-45X64.jpg
Posted by Peter Childs

A month and a half ago I wrote I was learning to code. That was probably a bit premature. While I have a much deeper understanding of what's involved, my project has stalled. After weeks, and weeks of reading - and trying lines of code that don't work - and then searching and reading some more I've come some conclusions. 1. You can't teach yourself! It's simply too complex (inter-acting dependencies) and the syntax is so strict that without a daily dialog with an experienced coder you never get enough lines written to really grasp what's going on. 2. There's a huge gulf between the myriad of simple tutorials and anything you'd actually want to do. As a non-programmer one needs examples that are similar to what you're trying to accomplish to learn. From the questions I've seen in forums experienced programmers sometimes do as well.
