No, I don't do programming. I still have not got to that yet. I am very much interested in programming activities, but have not go to that so far. I will one day, and I know my activities and time I devote on the computer each day would be more interesting. I will have to attend some programming classes at a computer school.

Actually, somebody told me that you can learn programming yourself with the use of reference books and going to forums and blogs. Well, it would be easier with that though. Good luck buddy. :]

yes ,I also do programming in my spare time. I have to say that it is a bit difficult at the beginning .you will feel better and a little achievement when you finished the language learning ,but you will find that you just could do some short programming,can not do long and one at that time .next you need to read others' programming that others have done and that could run well ,perfectly.at last ,you also can do programming that you want to do and which others ask you to do. good luck with you .

Programming is the real fun, once you exactly understand what you are doing, you will feel like god. Programming is nothing but being "God" at a very very small level. While programming, first you should plan what to do, then you decide how to do it and then you execute your plan to get the result, next time if you run your program it works the same way as you wanted it to...and thus you get your very small world (in that program) that works the way you wanted it to. As you are a beginner, I would suggest you to go through the syntax of any programming language and then have a general plan. Once you have your plan ready, think how you can use the syntax to get that plan executed. Always remember the more easy your plan is, the more easier it would be for you to use the syntax for execution. Initially, you will get errors and warning, never ever give up, keep trying again and again. After sometime, you will come to know the actual meaning of these errors and it will be easier to correct the error. This is how you learn programming. Programming is actually the extreme of teaching where you don't teach a human but a machine, yes it seems tougher at the beginning but it is fun once you learn it.

Well programming to me is not that difficult. It if similar to learning an entire new language. It not only depends on interest but also his labor. You start with books specially made for Dummies(means who have no idea) and are also available on all computer languages. On my blog u will find many : http://agsharad01.blogspot.com If you have good maths (atleast u shud be able to do calculation easily) and want to create something whether its a general purpose softwares(like calculator or accounts based) or want to design an animation(yes animation too needs programming),games or some network based softwares. You just choose one and start with a suitable language like Java or C.

I am a programmer myself. I could say that programming is a bit difficult. You must have good logical reasoning in order to do well in programming. You must also be good in math too. :)

In a way, programming really needs a hell of programming skills. :]

Yes, i do programming. I know few languages like C,C++(its same as C),Java and C#(.NET programming). Well i dont think that programming is hard or difficult to learn. I think its an individual's choice and interest whether he/she wants to do programming or not. If you have an interest in programming, then go for it. If you dont have any interest,then select any other option or any other field in which you have interest. Because in the end, if you'll have interest in any field, then only you become successful in that.

Yeah I program and its a bit at first, i'm still struggling after some months of doing it. I'm going to school for it so I guess it's sort of a bit easier to catch on to things better. I tried to learn on my own, but I just wasn't getting it. My suggestion is to get some basic knowledge of it and then try out various tutorials on the web, the more you program, the easier it is to understand key concepts and functionality.
