I am not a natural born programmer, but it is something that I have taught myself to tolerate and even enjoy at times. Here are a few things that helped me: 1.) find out which part of programming most interests you. "Programming" is such a large topic. Do you enjoy working with databases, creating web services? Then the "back-end" might be more your cup ...

Programing can be fun. Especially if you like Math and Languages - you are likely the type of person who can enjoy programming. But it can be very frustrating at times as well. The most important in making the new activity likeable is to achieve the so called Flow state - when tasks that you perform are hard enough to be interesting, but easy enough to be ...

When it comes to programming we're on the same page, I am somewhat a starter in programming and often times I find myself feelings stupid too, thinking how on earth did people manage to learn it. I may not be an expert yet So my advice won't be technical but an advice that will keep you going. Don't give up. As Anthony Liccione said "Don't give up because ...

I dislike that part of your speech when you said "I feel like I'm too stupid to learn". NO YOU ARE NOT STUPID ! Please,Try be kind with yourself and avoid those Self-deprecating thoughts.

You're getting something for doing nothing. Right now, you have no reason to change what you're doing: nothing. You'll change: if you want to, or if you're forced to. Neither method is pain-free. You've allowed your work ethic (whatever it was before the welfare kicked in) to atrophy. Getting it back, even if you want to, will take a lot of effort. ...

Work can be pleasant, and most jobs have some aspect that is pleasant. However, we all work in order to get paid, so what we do needs to produce enough value for someone to pay us. And that usually means that we also need to do something that is less pleasant. For instance, you may love coding, and if you could get a job where all you did was code, you ...

It can be pleasant, and it is, for many people. Unfortunately, it is not for many more. But that is not the failure of a specific job. It is hard to find the job that is pleasant specifically for you . It will, likely, be a combination of your talents and passion. A good reading on this topic is a book The Element by Sir Ken Robinson (I recommend reading it ...

I think the thing about programming that makes life hell is that it take up a lot of time! It need focus to do well at it! And it also comes with all kinds of challenges and I think that is what most of the programmers love. I think programming sucks as a job! It is much better if you take it as a hobby! It sucks because it takes a lot of focus and time! ...

Why do you program if you don't like to program? Do you work with programming? If so, how did you end up with such a job? Either way, I think it's good to understand the nature of programming. When you're doing something familiar, you're working very fast, and when doing something new, you'll spend a lot of time. This means that you'll spend a lot of time, ...
