    Question How do you learn programming?

    I think I am just frustrated with a C++ test, wonder if I am capable of doing programming...The class is teaching the core concepts (class, pointers...), but things are getting confusing now.

    I guess a good way is pratice, coding to see what happens, but sometimes I was too lazy. I read more than writing code.

    How do you guys learn programming? Any attitude or methods to share?

    Thank you.

    Start by learning the syntax. I made a tribes mod. The one day I picked up a C++ book, and it all started to make sence.

    Get a compiler and just start plugging away.
