Default FOR THEARON WILLIS

 Hello Thearon , my name is Gustavo and I want to learn
how to program computers.

Which your advice are to be a good programmer?
How is the logic acquired?
Is it true that people that are good in mathematics
are made easier the
programming of Computers, for the logic?

Is it true that algebra should be known?
Are the algorithms the first thing that should be
studied?
Is it Visual Basic. 2005 the language easier of
learning?

Thank you for your attention.
Gustavo from Colombia.

Gustavo,

I've typically found that good programmers are logical thinkers, people who can reason and think about how things work. You do not need to be good at math as I absolutely hate math; I always say let the computer do the math. If you get into more complex programs that do a lot of mathematically formulas then you'll need to be good at math to write the appropriate code.

Visual Basic 2005 is probably the easiest language to learn and since it is a true object-oriented language you'll find no end to the things that you can do with this language.

Thearon

Dear Mr. Willis,

I find it hard to believe that you hate math. I've read through your 'Beginning 2005 Database' up to ASP.NET section and I can see that your logic is really good such as when you program the TimeSheet SP in MSSQL and its implementation in VB and ASP.NET. And I can say it's practically the best programming book I've ever read.

There's no way you can hate math since you're really good at the logic of math.
