0 How to Improve Programming proficiency?

You are interested in computers, do love multipart systems as well as high technologies and want to become a good programmer? We do help you and present you within this web page both important and essential information considering the general improvement of programming skills.

First of all it is necessary to have basic know-how as well as a good and solid practice in programming. In order to increase your practice we recommend you writing lots of different programs in various programming languages. Once you have made deep and ‘important’ mistakes, you will become more experienced in programming systems, programs. That will help you to improve your web technology. You do also have the possibility to modify some existing programs. Just have a look at the code itself, its syntax, parameters and variables and try to improve it with your specific programming skills. This method is also called ‘Refactoring’ and concentrates on the improvement of programs even if they work and do not have mistakes.

The most important thing considering programming is your code. Your code tells the respective reader if you have done good, profound and professional work or not. So try to find a good mentor who reviews your written code and gives you some tips for improving it and doing general things better. In this case doing some Pair Programming could be a great possibility to learn from each other. Fact is that people of similar skill levels in programming are able to teach each other profound know-how.

Another important aspect considering the general improvement of programming is to widen you possibility by means of a variety of different programming languages. Learn multiple programming languages of different types and kinds such as object oriented, procedural and functional. Moreover you should learn more about the theoretical aspects of programming. Have a look at Amazon and order a variety of different books about code quality. Reading gives you the possibility to become a broader person – especially in your specific branch of programming.

If you do know some good programmers of a higher level, just ask them if they could help you with your code. Strictly speaking a team with good programmers provides the possibility to sit at their knees and learn a lot from them. Try to emulate their habits, their skills and their general work when it comes to programming. Furthermore you should seize the chance and ask them whatever you want to know about programming.

Find out what other programmers think about your code. Start a discussion in order to identify both negative and positive aspects about it. If somebody says that he or she is not able to understand some parts of your code, try to find out what it exactly is he or she does not comprehend. Furthermore you should be able to quit old habits and develop new ones.

0 Web surfing may improve your performance

Don't feel guilty about browsing the Internet at work—turns out it may actually improve your performance better in different way. According to a new study, Web browsing can actually refresh tired workers and enhance their productivity, compared to other activities such as making personal calls, texts or emails, let alone working straight through with no rest at all. 

The researchers conducted two studies. In the first, they assigned 96 undergraduate management students into one of three groups—a control group, a "rest-break" group and a Web-surfing group. All subjects spent 20 minutes highlighting as many letter e's as they could find in a sample text. For the next 10 minutes, the control group was assigned another simple task; members of the rest-break group could do whatever they pleased, except surf the Internet; and the third group could browse the Web. Afterward, all of the subjects spent another 10 minutes highlighting more letters. 

The researchers found that the Web-surfers were significantly more productive and effective at the tasks than those in the other two groups and reported lower levels of mental exhaustion, boredom and higher levels of engagement. "Browsing the Internet serves an important restorative function," the authors said. 

Personal emailing, by contrast, was particularly distracting for workers. The second study, which surveyed 191 adults, found similar results. Why is Web-surfing more restorative than, say, responding to a friend's email? When browsing the Internet, people "usually choose to visit only the sites that they like—it's like going for a coffee or snack break. Breaks of such nature are pleasurable, rejuvenating the Web surfer," wrote Dr. Lim, in an email. By contrast, workers can't control the kinds of email they receive, and reading and replying to each message is "cognitively more demanding, relative to Web surfing, as you need to pay attention to what is said on the email," she added. Because Web-surfing can aid productivity, the researchers caution employers against over-restricting workers' Web access. 

They recommend that managers allow time for limited personal Web browsing "since it has a salubrious impact on employees' productivity," while limiting access to personal emails.
