( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I started (and fell in love with) programming with a 1.5 year college course in March '99, and have been working in "the industry" for 6 months or so, but I still feel that my skills and certainly my speed as a developer are vastly inadequate. Am I being to hard on myself? Do other monks feel this way?

Be patient mothra.

It take a long time to be a good programmer, I mean not only knowing perfectly the syntax but be proficient with the idioms of the language...

And if you want to have a wide programmer background you'll have to count in years...

Yes I feel like you do, I'm a learner.
Even if I've been playing with computer since 1985 (anyone remember the TI99/4A or the ZX81 ?) All I know now is that even if I spend the rest of my life stuck on my computers 10 hours a day, I'll always be a learner : New Os, New Languages, New buzzwords (even if it's often old concepts...)

But anyway, as long as I enjoy learning and to see my skills increase, the computer-guy path will be my Path.

BTW stay humble as you are, for it's a common virtue among GREAT programmer.

Good luck, and enjoy...

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible editor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
