    Learning a New Programming Language Part 1: Getting Started - Your Motivation

    (Page 2 of 5 )

    For more than a decade I worked as a professional musician. Since I became a Web developer, I have come to see some similarities between the music world and the world of programming that may be useful here.

    All of the musicians I have met got into the business for one reason or another. The best of them and the ones that lasted the longest were where they were because they loved music and loved to share it with others. These people had a thirst for musical knowledge. Though like any human being they each had their preferences, they listened to a wide variety of music and got something useful out of all of it. Learning new musical concepts wasn't work to them and, at least in the beginning stages of their careers, it most certainly wasn't the money driving their interest.

    The point of all this is simple. If someone told you that you could make a lot of money learning this or that programming language they may be correct, but what will get you through the tough times and make you truly successful and happy in a pursuit such as programming is a love and appreciation for the craft. If you are obsessed with gadgets and love the challenge of making them work, you will have an edge over anyone that is only learning to make more money or get to the top of any ladder, no matter what their aptitude for learning might be.

    Okay, so say you have the proper motivation. Specifically how does learning a new programming language benefit what you do?
