Can you learn a programming language so well, that you know exactly what you must write to make the computer, do that and that?


#2

Learning the language isn’t the hard part. The hard part of making a computer do what you want is figuring out the logic that you need to tell the computer to execute.

You can memorize the syntax as if you’re studying for a test (which I find super boring and a terrible way to learn) or you can not worry so much about the syntax and just get a general understanding of it. Whenever you forget certain syntax, just google it or look it up in a book. You DO need to know what to be doing with said method/function and why it works.

If a carpenter needed to build a table, he’d have to go get some wood, a hammer, etc. He knows how to use those tools to create what he needs to make.

The most important part is working your way through a problem and thinking logically. The language alone won’t help you much if you don’t know how or when to use it.

I find it much easier to learn if I think of something I want to make and then learn the things I need to make whatever it was. Programming is above all else a hobby imo, and it’d be a shame to treat it like studying for an exam.
