From Psychology to Logic: Learning Computer Programming in the Kitchen

This lesson focuses on the biggest problem faced by any young programmer - i.e. the logic building required while solving a particular problem. With programming, the solution to a particular problem lies in the head, but one is unable to convert it into a computer program. This is because the thought processes of a human are much faster than the sense of observation. If this thought process could be slowed down, logic to solve a programming problem could be found very easily. This lesson focuses on converting this psychological thought process in a step-by-step logic fashion that a computer program can understand.
