How to improve programming problem-solving skills

programming problem solving skills

From a young age, our brains develop to the world around us, the environment we live in, and the people who we interact with. The brain thinks about road-blocks and problems we have and how we can possibly overcome these situations. It tries many things until the problem is solved or your run out of energy trying to solve it. Being a good problem solver isn’t something that people have an innate ability to do, rather it is something that is studied, learned, and analyzed, which makes it much more desirable to have problem solving skills in programming.

The Hardest Programming Languages

Hardest programming language

In order to run, you must first learn to walk. In order to create programs, you must learn to code. A rule of thumb with learning is to build upon what you understand and know and develop new abilities and skills. The nature of programming is cumulative, what you know now can be used to learn something else later. With so many computing languages emerging, it’s difficult to understand all of them, so most start with the easier ones because they are the foundation of all the other newer ones. Continue reading

Is Computer Science Hard? Make Sure you are Ready for it

Is Сomputer Science Hard

Life comes at you quickly, especially when you’re unprepared. Students looking to go to University often come across the problem of choosing which field they want to study and what’s right for them. There is no easy answer, but there are plenty of ways to figure it out and lots of information to help you make a decision. So you’ve looked into doing computer science, but have no idea where to start? Well, let us help! Continue reading

Modeling Projectile Motion Using Python

do-science

Any system or process can be described by some mathematical equations. Their nature may be arbitrary. Does security service of a stadium want to know fan traffic in the case of fire? Does an engineer construct a thermal generating unit for your house? Usually, using a small set of general rules and laws of nature, one can predict everything at least for the nearest future. So, in this article, we’ll continue our topic of the computer simulations and deal with the way all these calculations are performed.  Continue reading

How to Use Smart Pointers in C++

Catching Memory Allocation Bugs How to Use Smart Pointers in C++

One of the major strengths and weaknesses of both C and C++ are pointers. You can forget to allocate or free memory in the relevant place and program will work perfectly except for unexpected crashes during the most inconvenient time. Modern C++ (standard 2011) has some tricks to help save time and energy during the development process. Continue reading

Computer Simulations: How To Simulate A Simple TV Game Using Python

Computer Simulations: How To Simulate A Simple TV Game Using Python

Computer simulations play an important role in many scientific and engineering problems. Depending on the given tasks, different methods are used: someone needs to solve complicated systems of equations which cannot be solved analytically, other perform numerous computations to get enough statistics without real-life experiments. The first mentioned group of tasks is often related to calculations on electric and electronic devices while the latter is often related to the statistics problems (a lot of problems in economy, thermodynamics, etc.). In this article, we discuss an example of how a simple analysis can be performed by the accumulation of the enough number of random events. Continue reading
