Current material

Just a short update: right now I am reading the CoreData Tutorial from Ray Wenderlich’s team, which is pretty good (as always…)

And it helps me making some efforts in my App-project „pocketmoney“ 🙂

Additionally I am reading Ash Furrow’s new Swift book, as well as Ray Wenderlich’s Swift by Tutorials…

Slow programming – slow learning

After reading „The Case for Slow Programming“ I really thought about the HOW to learn new things.

I usually tend to code pretty fast, not just because I type fast, but also I often find myself in the habit of code-something–test-in-browser–read-error–back-to-code-and-try-to-fix-it–upload–test-again….

Although it often works out at the end of the day, it tends to get stressfull at times and when I look at it, there’s really one thing missing: step back, analyze and THINK about the problem and the solution…

So: I’ll try to programm s l o w e r, not typing, but programming. I want to think more about what I am about to do and how I’ll do it. Let go of the muscle memory (like: ah! An error, maybe it goes away with an Exclamation-mark….), less RE-acting to errors…

And also learning slower seems a good way to me right now. Read slow. Recap it. Read code-examples and try to understand it BEFORE I type it off and try it out for myself…

I’ll see how that works out for me in the next time.
