    I REALLY SAD. can any Bro help me!

    I am a master student in US. Computer science major.

    But...right now. I just debugging my java program project. And I spend 6 hours ,still not good.
    I am really frustrated.

    I have a classmate, who can finish a very big project in 1 day. And he also can built whole OS by himself with C.

    Sometimes, i wonder, is that somebody has talent on programming and someone doesn't have any.?....and I am those one who doesn't have?...

    I really frustrated today. and doubt myself...
    I really want to die....

    Can any kind body help me,,and tell me what should I do?...

    I really hard work. but on programming ..always so so.....

    Read about the life history of Abraham lincoln , he was not to be a president in a single
    day, let the fruit ripes dear , it will become more sweeter.

    Immediate results would bring many problems , so think that god saved you from the big unsolvable
    problem.

    I like this paragraph from chapter 16 of Accelerated C++:
    There is an old story about a visitor who has become lost in New York, with tickets in hand to a piano recital. Stopping a passerby, the visitor asks, "Excuse me. Can you tell me how to get to Carnegie Hall?" The answer: "Practice!"
    That said, I have heard the argument that some people really are not cut out for computer programming, so if you are simply do not have the disposition to be a computer programmer, you should just quit (i.e., learning the basics to get an idea of it is about is enough for you). Yet, you are studying computer science, not computer programming, so perhaps you can focus on your strengths in computer science itself, and accept that where programming is concerned you will simply not do as well as those who have greater experience and/or aptitude for it.

    Well. It's my theory that practising the use of language, be it C or English, will help you in other languages. That being said, perhaps work on your English. You might find it helps your programming ability.

    Just to reiterate what laserlight said. You're studing CS, so you have the choice to steer clear of programming. Not sure what sort of Computer Scientist that would make you though.

    Practice, practice, practice. If you don't make mistakes now, you're going to have a hell of a time in the future.

    I see nothing in your post that warrants this statement. There is more to life than code.

    The only way you get good is to program. If you do not enjoy programming then do something else. You can either let mean old C++ attack you or you can suck it up and attack it. As for me I enjoy the challenge of breathing life into a piece of otherwise inanimate cold lifeless hardware.

    Might I suggest starting a small project and finishing it to give yourself a bit of a confidence boost? Finished projects are always good for the soul.

    You're always rambling on about the Boost libraries, aren't you?

    I second finishing a project. Even if you don't, getting close and releasing something (even if it's only source code) can be a boost. My trick is to have more than one project (usually in different languages), so if I get bored then I can work on another project.

    It sounds like you're about where you ought to be in a graduate program.

    On your career path flow chart, the 'Graduate School' transfer function is the black box mechanism that converts useful enthusiasm into genuine hatred of your passion. By skipping this step, you've shunted the work required to make a Masters program worth it...else you haven't been working hard enough.

    I'm not immature, I'm refined in the opposite direction.

    I can't stand having a project unfinished, I don't know how you all do it. If I stop, I spend the next hour trying to figure out where I left off. Maybe that will change with experience, but it hasn't gotten any better so far.

    can you tell us how many years you have been programming and how many projects you have done so far ?
    because you know that you can not be programmer by just reading books!
    if you see your friend doing such great stuff so fast , thats because he definitely did them before so he has an impression and idea about what he has to go through in order to e.g write a simple OS . this means he did it once , so he can recall what he did and do it again and again .
    you didnt do that project ! or anything like that , so you have no idea what he is doing !
    and dont push yourself too much ! you cant get to him if you sit and cry !
    man step by step , flourish , take the first step now , start with a simple project, and then move to other one.
    to me there are two discrete group of people who can make great programmers .
    the ones with the God given talent
    the ones who are persistent
    believe me practicing and inspiring yourself is the key! this kind of frustration will devastate you even if you are a talented person in programming(you may have the talent,but you may not know that! because of not trying it out!)!
    before saying those nonsense ! believe in yourself , don't blame yourself for not knowing sth that you have no idea about it!

    Of all of the skills a programmer needs I would put tenacity at the top of the list...


    Oh and MasterX, that is *Rick Cook* not Rich Cook...I have all six volumes on my ebook reader...

    C/C++ Environment: GNU CC/Emacs
    Make system: CMake
    Debuggers: Valgrind/GDB
