Education: Developer's tips
(Guardian (UK) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) * The process of creating the instructions for a computer is called "programming". You write the instructions out in a programming language - and there are many different kinds to choose from.
* If you are having problems doing something, break it down into small problems that are easy to describe. Then put each description into a search engine - you'll find a wealth of information on possible solutions online.
* The best way to learn how to program is by programming. Find a good tutorial online or in your bookshop and read it, but always produce real working programs and websites alongside it to practise your new skills.
