Hello all,

What are the things that are to needed to become a good programmer?

I am in this field from last 1 year still i am facing fear in doing programming.

I have the fear in building logic.

Seniors here, Please suggest me some tips & practices to become a good programmer & remove fear of logic development.

Thanks in advance.

practice, practice, practice.


There are only two hard things in computer science: cache invalidation, naming things, and off-by-one errors

Get books, read, code and ask tons of questions...
Always be willing to learn.

Give enough time to learn the basics. Mainly datatypes,loops,condition etc. First be conceptually strong. And write lots of code by yourself.

I'd suggest you try programming on your own, for fun, in addition to any school/work programming you're doing. Don't worry too much about doing everything absolutely perfectly, just worry about understanding what the code does.

I find that learning is a lot easier if I have a goal- create a little program, or a little game, that you think is interesting. That way you aren't super stressed about what other people think, and you're more free to explore how things work.
