>>fb-OHR2ZZ2B (OP) What book is this?
i liek boob
I don’t like how this book starts. It introduces programming as a means to make money, using corrupt businesses as an example. Programming is a means for advancing society, not to make money from it to do who knows what. If you want to make money, just go to businesses school; making a big corporation shouldn’t be the reason why anyone learns to code.
>>fb-DL7OFAJG well there's your problem, read some good books
Are you learning programming now or just brushing up on the basics? If it is the latter, I lean more on the hacker ethos that you should learn programming by writing programs: get a list of challenges or somesuch and try them. If you can't, scrounge the net for ideas. If it is the former, a book with "for dummies" in the title is the worst way to go about it, they are usually aimed at normalcattle looking to have a shallow yet workable understanding of the subject (hence the rhetoric you saw). Even for a beginner I still encourage the hacker method of learning because I believe programming is closer to art than to science, technical knowledge alone won't get you anywhere, writing programs is still very much a writing skill, so you need to read and write a lot to develop it, that means not only writing you own programs, but also reading other people's, studying them, and learning from them.
