A quick reflection on 5 months of programming
Highly and most anticipated, I will suck
in my first article and I recognize that
but I’ll go ahead anyway to start the ball rolling without getting stuck in an editing death loop.
Actually i have been reading computer programming
all wrong. I can’t treat it with a mindset
that it is like a sport.
I have to treat it like learning magic.
Incantations and spells
Its all about tips and tricks,
hacks and modifying-
and not necessarily being only smart
but being witty and outwitting.
In sports, he who possesses the strongest
will to push very often finds success.
In programming, for now I have to operate
with a different type of mindset,
I need to think more of like Invoker in Dota.
First i have to remember all the basic combinations,
and i have to have quick thinking on thinking
what kind of combination solves the problem
of giving me the advantage in infinite
situations of my farming lane.
Then going deeper, solving the problem
of disarming heroes and which heroes in ganks,
solving the problem of whether to slow enemy
heroes down and why ,or deal as much damage as possible.
Then going even further, taking note of how
to farm as efficient as possible, and again with what skills
If i want to practice problem solving skills
specifically back-end logic programming problem
I gotta play Dota
I gotta start playing Invoker
I don’t know if it works.
I can play chess
but its not fast pace enough
I can add a timer
