Become a Great Programmer by Following These Simple Steps

Many people want to become a programmer, but don’t know-how. In order to learn programming, you need the right mindset and the right skillset. This blog post will teach you what those are and how to get them. What is the right skill set and mindset to become a great programmer? In order to be a great programmer, you need to have the right mindset and skillset. The first step is to develop the right mindset. You need to be passionate about programming and want to learn more. Secondly, you need to have the necessary skillset. This includes being able to solve problems, think critically, and communicate effectively. How to get these skillsets? To develop the right mindset and skillset, you need to practice. The best way to learn programming is by doing it. You can find online tutorials, attend coding bootcamps, or read books on programming. The most important thing is to get started and keep practicing. Dont give up. The learning curve is steep, but it will be worth your time. Learn about programming languages One of the most popular programming languages are C++. It works on all operating systems and is impossible to crash. Java, on the other hand, does not work on all operating systems but has more functions that are easier for beginners to learn. A lot of people claim that one language is better than the other language, but at some point, they will have features that make them each excel in their ways. For FORTRAN is great for scientific or engineering calculations because it has a wide range of mathematical functions that are built-in. You don’t need to learn every programming language out there, but you should be familiar with the most popular ones. This will give you a better idea about which one to choose when starting to program. Practice, practice, practice! There are many different ways to practice programming. For instance, you can download a free trial of Microsoft Visual Studio or use online tutorials like Codecademy. You can also read books and blogs on the topic of computer...

Programming language’s Leaps and Bounds

Programming language’s Leaps and Bounds

In this post, I will do my best to get to the cruz of computer systems and networks, really getting into exactly where it came from. Starting with the von Neumann architecture, computer memory had the developed capacity to store computer programs. This was obviously a slow process, but in certain days, what else could you expect. Then, assembly languages were created which fave the programmer the ability to specify code; to directly address issues within the computer network so that the user can achieve whatever they might need to on your specific website.  This process began with complex networks of symbols and binary systems, but today, we can see exactly how streamlined these processess have become. With an easy access blog-setup site like WordPress, anyone can access the depths of the internet and provide any and all information they have the proclivity to profess to the web. This evolution has taken years and is in no respect something to take for granted. However, I am happy to see a wider-breadth of internet clientele and beta-level usage. It may deter from your average users incentive to really understand what they are doing and what the implications of their actions online are. But, at the end of the day, how much can us programmers seriously ask. Well, in the name of not giving up, in the 1950s, FORTRAN, a high level programming language was developed. This more complex abstraction in programming language allows direct formulas to be implemented within machine language. This was huge then, but now with inexpensive processing power and abstracted hardware readily available in programming languages, options abound and usability takes leaps and bounds. For example, an open-source editor concept that sites like Wikipedia use, have since developed Beta-level editors which take away the comprehension of any html. This is huge for your average computer  user who avoids going deeper than the surface. I see this as important, but we are nowhere near close to the stage of reducing the importance of programming...

Computer’s High Stakes Poker Game

Computer’s High Stakes Poker Game

One might find this post a little outlandish, but I will argue here the nature in which a computer plays poker itself. In its system of gambling, trial and error, chance and all else, the computer systematically approaches your own level of usage and affords an equitable reward for one’s level and understanding. The rewards and depth system is one I came up with, but it successfully measures the extent to which the individual might approach the complexity of the internet. Coding coding coding. If you can handle that, then you’re approached almost an expert level of computer competence. With this prestigious hand in the poker game, one can manipulate and achieve almost what they wish, with enough time and effort. As if it were literally a game of cards, your luck and favor changes with diligence and knowledge. That is to say, were I to approach the world series of poker, even with my experience, I’d be tossed out on the lawn before the second hand is drawn. I enjoy poker quite thoroughly, and I am not afraid to say it. My poker competence does not directly correlate to my knowledge of the computer and extent there, but were I to measure said competence in this way, I’d be undoubtedly your famed star, your expert enthusiast who cannot get enough. Let’s just say these are my own measures, but hey, what can you do! Computers and the networks and language they are composed of create a systematic game. A game in which variables must be considered. What’s on the line? What if I make this move and my life is on the line because I was gambling too much over the last few weeks? The same might be said for playing poker. You start posting and engaging the internet blindly, as one might be inclined to do so when playing poker. You can end up in the hole in just about no time. Your reputation is tarnished and you become the laughing stock of the internet, hitting blog forums as far as reddit and twitter which openly display your mishaps. My argument is thus here: watch out before you dig a hole too deep to crawl out of. That require nothing more than acknowledging one’s...
