Any great tips for beginner in programming?
« on: May 15, 2018, 08:08:12 pm »
I know that practice makes perfect but I am just wondering if there are any great tips out there that are so important and people won't talk about it that much at the beginning of the learning process.

you need a goal to accomplish something. A lot of reading works a lot.
But the most important thing is feeling!

Design a small application that does something useful for YOU, and set about implementing it, after reviewing the demos, samples etc.

Don't copy paste code without understanding what it does.
Be patient, learning takes time.
Stay away from keyboard (read: writing code) before making your solution on paper (or elsewhere) and validate it. It's analoguous to don't attack without plan.
