Frustrations and Programming

Written 8 months ago

The most frustrated I get when I'm programming is when I focus on the outcome, and not the process.

You can learn how to program by focusing on the outcome. But I think the truly excellent programmers understand the process.

Example:

I learned Ruby on Rails lately. It abstracts away a lot of the process. I showed my friend, and he made fun of me, because he understands the magic of Rails, and I agree with him.

Rails is very outcome focused. Build an application, quickly. PHP is very processed based. Build an application, and understand deeply everything that goes on within it.

That's all.
