"The only way to learn a new programming language is by writing programs in it." - Dennis Ritchie
So, how are you learning - By writing programs or by Ctrl + C, Ctrl + V? 😛

    The two are not mutually exclusive 😉

    This, however, is one reason why I'm still a bit fan of recommending someone learns a programming language from a book rather than from online material. Back when I started there was no copy paste option - you had a book or two, a big ring bound reference binder,and that was it. If you wanted utility functions or libraries, you almost always had to write them yourself.

    I'm not nostalgic enough that I'd say we should all go back to bulky ring binder reference manuals -- but the fact there were no shortcuts was certainly a nice side effect for thorough learning back then.

    The profession of a programmer seems to me very attractive and promising. I had thoughts of going to college for programming, I even ordered a statement of goals on the service https://www.sopservices.net/ I was preparing for the entrance exams, but my friends persuaded me. I heard many stories that this is a male profession and I cannot cope, I was frightened by constant difficulties in the learning process and I gave up. And I have no regrets.

    A good book to learn programming can provide the information you need to understand and use utility functions and libraries. You can view code examples and read detailed explanations on how to use these functions and libraries. Learning to program from a book gives you more opportunities to understand and use utility functions, libraries, and functionality.
