  1. Teach Yourself Programming in Ten Years

An essay by Peter Norvig, a computer scientist and director of research at Google. The essay is titled "Teach Yourself Programming in Ten Years" and it challenges the idea that programming can be learned quickly and easily by following books or courses that promise to teach it in a short time span, such as 21 days or 24 hours. Norvig argues that programming is a complex skill that requires deliberate practice, feedback, and exposure to a variety of problems and paradigms. He compares programming to other domains, such as music, chess, sports, and writing, and shows that they all require years of dedicated study and practice to master. He also provides some suggestions on learning programming effectively, such as reading code, writing code, working on projects, talking to other programmers, and taking courses. He concludes that programming is not easy, but it is fun and rewarding if one is willing to invest the time and effort to learn it well.
