If You Know How to Program…

In the past week, I have come across a slightly different view of programming, from two different sources.

The premise of this book, and the other books in the Think X series, is that if you know how to program, you can use that skill to learn other topics.

from “Think Bayes” by Allen B. Downey.

I see programming as a way of learning Mathematics

from Coding the Matrix: Linear Algebra through Computer Science Applications, a free Coursera course.

This is something worth thinking about. This gives programming a slightly different twist – as a tool for learning. It is also a good tool for thinking.
