Programming

Before you do anything else, you need to understand some basic programming constructs. Stuff Like:

WHAT’S A VARIABLE? (understand the importance of global and local variables)

WHAT’S A PROCEDURE AND WHAT IS A FUNCTION? (what’s the difference?)

HOW DO YOU CALL A FUNCTION?

SEQUENCE (Series of Statements one after the other)

SELECTION (CASE AND IF)

ITERATION (LOOPS – While Loops, For Loops, Repeat Until Loops)

RECURSION (strange sort of function that calls itself)

You can learn these in any language or in no language at all (pseudocode) but once you understand the principles you can move on to do just about anything as a programmer.
