RE: I’m 14 and I want to know how to become a master at programming?

1 Answers

To become a programmer you should follow the following steps:

  1. Take an introductory course in one (or all of them) of the following disciplines:
    • Logic
    • Discrete mathematics
    • Programming language (take a part into the different programming paradigms, starting from sequential/procedural to object oriented, after functional and logical programming. Preferable Ruby/ Python/Pascal for beginners and after some good understanding go deeper into C++/C#/Java )
  2. Learn database concepts such as tables, views/queries and procedures. You can use any simple database package to do this, such as:
    • MS Access
    • DB V
    • Fox Pro
    • Paradox
    • MySQL is a good database to learn because it’s free, commonly used, and databases are commonly accessed with SQL queries
  3. Decide what type of programmer you want to be. Programmers generally fall under one of the following categories:

    • Web programmer
    • Desktop application programmer
      • Operating system (OS) oriented programmer(tied to a single operating system or set of operating systems)
      • Platform-independent programmer
    • Distributed applications programmer
    • Library/platform/framework/core programmer
    • System programmer
      • Kernel programmer
      • Driver programmer
      • Compiler programmer
    • Programming scientist
  4. Learn the technologies and programming languages related to your programming field of choice. The following sections break down the tasks for different types of programming.
