Programming is not magic

  1. Learning the language. The language is pure logic and basically consists of simple operations such as if x is greater than y then do z. Anyone with a grasp of simple logic can learn a programming language.
  2. Problem solving. This is irrespective of the language and the skill of the programmer really means their logical problem or puzzle solving skill.
