Motivation behind Learning to Program by chris pine:
I figure this all started in 2002. I was contemplating showing programming, and what an awesome dialect Ruby would be for figuring out how to program. That is to say, we were altogether amped up for Ruby since it was capable, exquisite, and extremely simply fun, yet I couldn’t help suspecting that it would likewise be an awesome approach to get into programming in any case.
Tragically, there wasn’t much Ruby documentation intended for amateurs at the time. A few of us in the group were discussing what such a “Ruby for the Nuby” instructional exercise would need, and all the more by and large, how to show programming by any stretch of the imagination. The more I considered this, the more I needed to state (which shocked me a bit). At long last, somebody stated, “Chris, why not simply compose an instructional exercise as opposed to discussing it?” So I did.
What’s more, it wasn’t great. I had every one of these thoughts that were great in principle, however the real errand of making an extraordinary instructional exercise for non-software engineers was immensely more difficult than I had figured it out. (That is to say, it appeared to be great to me, yet I definitely knew how to program.)
Two or after three years, it was getting entirely great. :- ) So great, indeed, that I was prepared to articulate it completed, and proceed onward to something unique. Furthermore, appropriate about then came a chance to transform the instructional exercise into a book. Since it was at that point fundamentally done, I figured this would be no issue. I’d quite recently tidy up a couple of spots, include some more activities, pCoerhaps some more cases, a couple of more parts, run it by 50 more analysts…
It took me one more year, however now I believe it’s extremely great, generally due to the many overcome souls who have helped me compose it.
What’s here on this site is the first instructional exercise, pretty much unaltered since 2004. For the most recent and most prominent, you’ll need to look at the book.
Conclusion of Learning to Program:
This book is a better option to start learning programming from basics. This book contains all the concepts related to field of programming which can be used for many different high level as well low level programming like assembly language. All of the code samples were automatically run, and the output shown is the output they generated. I think this is the best, easiest, and certainly the coolest way to make sure that all of the code I present works exactlyas I say it does. You don’t have to worry that I might have copied the output of one of the examples wrong, or forgotten to test some of the code; it’s all been tested.
