How to master programming skills

with one comment

I found very nice discussion on archlinux forum started by an young guy, who is already familiar with C, C++ syntax, but still can’t find a way to write an useful program. I think many people has or had before same problem, we know what is brick, how a cement works, etc. but still we don’t know how to build a house. The general answer is: practice, of course. So if you are looking for some programming inspiration, read this. It should help.

The most useful (IMO) tip was given by ihpitus:

Just find something on your desktop you don’t like, think of some tool you’d find useful, or work out what’s missing from your desktop, and there’s a project. If it seems hard — good, you learn more.

Interesting pages: Project Euler, Python Challenge and SPOJ
