The idea projected that good programming can't be learned in a short time-frame such as 7 days is very true.
On a personal note, I have been programming in Linoleum for a few years now and still feel like a novice at times. I didn't expect to be an expert overnight, but in spite of that I have learned a lot about Linoleum.
Here's my question:
What are your thoughts on this?
|I agree that you can't really learn the intricacies of a programming language in a matter of days or weeks, but I don't think that's really the point of these books either. Their goal is to get someone up to at least a novice level in a given language within a relatively short time frame. There are lots of reasons why this could be useful. Maybe you have a project in the short term that requires the use of a specific programming language. You won't be an expert in the field just by completing the book, but you should at least have a basic understanding of the core principals of building something with that language.|
