This article will show you how to make the first steps in programming. I'm not going to teach you how to select your first programming language, or which book to start with, or how to pass an interview. All this is not so important. What I’m going to do is to help you to write your first program.
It so happens that, working as a developer, I gave programming lessons to two of our customers. A couple of years ago I tried to teach my girlfriend programming. As a student, I often had to help my friends. And they all suffered from the same problem. They tried writing it all at once, and then looking for bugs and finding the reason why the program did not work.
But even I, who have engaged in programming for a long time, have not learned how to write programs at once, from the very beginning to the end.
