iamai25111yLearning how to Google is indeed the most valuable of them all. :)
deiner361yI'm surprised no one actually mentioned the learning to type. I actually taught a group of neighbor kids (elementary school kids) how to code for nearly a year in the past. What I realized at the very beginning was that none of them knew how to touch type, so making any progress was painfully slow. I ended up spending first 4 months (meeting twice a week) on that drudgery. After that, they can really fly if the motivation hasn't sapped. I had them using MIT's Scratch first. Whether or not they'll continue is really up to giving them a steady stream of progressively challenging goals.
eeee33191yI'd teach to be lazy in a smart way: you need a lot of experience to recognise when to be lazy and just use a certain trick or pattern to solve a complex problem with the least amount of effort.
So yes, be lazy about programming, but no, don't be lazy about learning how.
"Don't be lazy"?
Some of the best work, in my experience, comes from developers too lazy to do things over and over the same old way.
