Have you ever solved a problem using a language you are not familiar with? You did, either when you were beginner or you wanted to experiment with some language.
I remember once I solved my friends C++ assignment without knowing a single piece of C++ code, or help python kids solve their coding problem without looking into python codebase.
Nim is a bit similar to python, I knew a bit of python, it's obvious I was able to write the code. Pretty impressive of me, patting my own back.
But reason why I am sharing is the
how I could write a solution without knowing the syntax much.
Here is the biggest secret,
Programming is not about a language, it's about solving a problem.
Of course I had to search a lot and fail a lot.
nim in action book is good, but it's the age of videos. Right now there is not a single crash course about nim on the youtube. I had to rely on the documentation and forum, which means there are opportunities for this.
Next time I will try rust and crystal. Both are fairly new to me. I am just playing around with cool stuff and will probably give up at some point.
Do you have any such experience? How did you tackle that?
