    Programming is a very small and easy thing, but the main challenging task is to develop a software that works efficiently, is thoroughly debugged, reliable, well modularised, easily upgradable and maintainable!! :)

    Put more pressure on analysis and designing part of the software!!

    Not agree to you at all. It needs a lot of hardwork and time also.

    :)) That is really very very important in all database applications!! There are no 1-2-3 kind of steps. It is very subjective and differs from scenario to scenario and person to person. So you need experience to get hold over it. ;)

    First decide what domain you really want to be in & then concentrate on it.

    c is the basic for all programmers. For object-oriented environment, learn c++ and java.

    learning a programming language is essential for a programming career but I disagree completely to the concept of learning C++ or java first. I believe you can start with something as good as C#. It is so because whichever language you opt for or you master in, the fundamentals of programming never change. C#, C++ , JAVA are all in the same family. Starting with any of them you like is good for you. Though C++ is usable on more OS than C# at present. I personally learnt JAVA before C++ and I know it was a right decision.

    HARD WORK IS NOT REQUIRED .... SMART WORK is required .... it just needs a spark.. try to make small programs in C, C++ etc... increase difficulty level day by day.. this way ur logical thinking power will increase.... remember.... PROGRAMMING SKILLS WILL NOT BE ACQUIRED JUST BY READING BOOKS ON PROGRAMMING... IT REQUIRES TO SIT ON THE COMPUTER FOR HOURS... PASSION FOR PROGRAMMING AND A LITTLE COMMON SENSE... U WILL DO IT...
    __________

    I also agree... I know it is very helpful but I HATE IT [​IMG]

    U can start with C. its a basic and very strong language though a little bit hard. Then u can shift to C++ and JAVA. and ofcourse sit on the computer and try to write programs and do a little bit of experiments on the codes.
