Sifu is the Master or the Teacher of students : )
I guess I should mention that I looked at the course offered here on Sitepoint, but it looks too slow for me.
I work all day, long hours often, and just dont have time to follow along with a class.
But it sure seems like a nice option, I wish I could take it…
As for now, books/tutorials will have to do I think.
This will not be my first attempt at learning programming.
I have tried a few times actually, but always seem to get hung up when it comes time to write code for myself.
When I follow books, it all makes sense what they say, when I sit down to do it for myself… BLANK…
Yup, I know that. Keep writing. Write code write code write code. Over time you figure out what code does some of the basic things you need, so that later when you know you need to do “x”, already you know which functions to look up.
You can’t take a low-level course and then jump into doing random things… but you can use a low-level course to understand a cookbook (cookbooks are great… basically you look up “how do I do x?” and there’s a recipe for you to start with).
