Do a Lot of Work
Lately I talked to a number of people you just started programming. They all lamented about how bad their code looks and how bad it works and that it’s all just a bunch of badly hacked-together lines of whatever programming language they used. I found this is a great quote by radio host and producer Ira Glass that holds true for programming as well.
Now stop whining and do a lot of work and your code will soon look better than mine!
