When we’re young, we are still developing our self-awareness as we age. From a young age, we have been exposed to our surroundings and been able to navigate around our environment. Our body develops a lot of new things as we grow older and we need to learn to be able to navigate around them.
We are also able to learn new things through practice, and learning by doing is a huge part of the process. Learning how to do something as simple as washing our hair is a huge part of learning to keep our hair looking good, so that we don’t have to wash it every day.
The internet has made learning anything as simple as how to do something as simple as washing our hair easy. You can learn how to do a simple task on the internet in under a minute with a few clicks of a mouse. But that is in no way an excuse to not try to learn. When you learn how to do something, you are learning how to do it better, and that is what will make you better at it.
For the past couple of years, I have been learning the most important parts of programming. I am a professional programmer. My job is to write code that makes sense. I make sure it works. I make sure it works well. I use the correct tools and techniques to achieve my goals. I make sure my code meets all the requirements. I use my best judgment when writing code. This all makes me the best programmer I can be. I have a lot of fun doing it.
It’s hard to really say “good programming” because there is no one perfect answer. There are certain techniques that make the code more readable and maintainable. But programming is a lot more complicated than just writing code that makes sense and works well. There are dozens of ways to write code that make it a mess. All of these different ways to write code add to the confusion.
Like anything else, the best way to write code is to know when to use it and when not to use it. It’s not hard to write code that works and makes sense, but knowing when to use it and when not to use it is even harder. You don’t have to know every detail of every function, but you must use what you have to know. So when you code, don’t try to be perfect and learn every last little thing that you can.
Code is a very useful tool to write code, but most of the time you don’t need to know every little thing to write code that works. You can write code that works, but it doesn’t need to be perfect. There are many examples of code that worked but were not perfect, and the best way to write code is to know when to use it and when not to use it.
The very best programmers I know have known that a “code smell” is when you see a code that is wrong, but you can’t figure out why. If code smells like it smells, then its probably a code smell. You could probably write some code that does something terrible, but you don’t need to.
