Chapter Two: Programming Is for Everyone “Don't think you can program? Think again! ” Many people avoid programming because it looks too mysterious and complicated. However, it's really not all that hard. Most people could benefit from writing a little bit of code for their unintelligent computer. " —Peter Drucker Whenever I talk about programming in a group of people, I watch as their eyes glaze over. Unless I'm in the company of other programmers—who will often perk up—most people have little interest in the tasks involved with making a computer do something.
Programming Is Fun While some programming may be a little mundane and/or frustrating, it can actually be fun. If you enjoy solving puzzles or doing crosswords, then it just might be right for you. There is nothing more satisfying than putting together a script that does what you want it to do. In fact, after having a particularly unique programming success, you'll need to seek out someone just so they can appreciate what you've just accomplished. ) As you add more and more personalization to your computer, you will become increasingly comfortable with the software terminology and code writing process.
Software should be so easy to understand that anyone can use it. Programmers have done an excellent job of making computer products much more intuitive and easy to operate—in particular Apple devices. However, there is a down side to user-friendly. In order to make software easy to use, you must eliminate some level of flexibility. The simpler the program, the more likely that something unusual can't be done. This is not a problem unless that "unusual" task is exactly what you want to do. The only way around this inflexibility is to include some type of programming language with the software—which most apps don't.
