Tutorial for Beginners - Not a usual tutorial [Read it all and i think it will help]
disclaimer, i don't post this because i think i have learned something that anyone don't already know and i don't post this because i think i am yet a master guru in php but i just figured out a way of understanding the ways of php and might even be other programming languages as well so read for fun and just go with the flow you might see my point you might not it's up to you i justed wanted to share as i love knowledge and i think it should be free and everyone should get a chance to learn everything they want thats fact! so don't flame me for this if you think it's not helping, as i said i just post a theory of mine, about php and programming in general so lets start.
TEXT NOT EDITED YET
you might feel as a beginner that you don't quite get the syntax of the programming world as many tutorial explain the computer will do the hard work and you will just guide the computer to do what you want it to do sure if you want to think like that sure that might be a good way but why not even think like this if you set your mind to something for example php because of the fact you started because you wanted to learn php and even other programming languages why is that you might ask if you are like me i ask questions that some of us in the world never asks but as i think of the world as a knowledge base and a enjoyment i do as i do and let people follow my example or just leave me alone well anyways back more to the topic in hand "php" so i just figured out when i was watching a movie to day about numbers theory and world around us as math i figured out if a man can set a goal in early stage of life to walk on the moon i sure as hell can code php some of you might think this is just nonsense because it's 2 different things to code and walk on the moon but i think if you are up to something u can do it what ever the task is for example, i think like this people in general do the stuff the person attracts in mind and soul so if we say it like this you want to learn php or anything in general we will use php as today it is the topic you attract to that because in some way you have been influenced by it some how so you want to be a part of that that is one more thing in life or should i say in people we want to be a part of something that is always bigger then you
what can i say i have allot of free time to think :)
well lets move on to my theory,
while you might as i said find something to be hard because of the lack of focus or something that is more repealing at the moment that is dragging your attention to something like games or something like that i did in the beginning think for my self php is to hard to learn omg i will never learn it as most people think of anything they are trying to learn but i figured out a way of reconnecting your brain to focus on the object in hand as this time it's php so how to do it? well
good question ;) as i said it's a theory of mine in anything really but might work more for php as i said i had hard time learning it so i did like this i stopped for some while i just started thinking hum php in general a way to talk to the computer and tell it to do as i want so i just started to think like this why keep my thoughts in a box when in fact i just wrote up on the line that "so i can tell the computer to do as i want" well then i will then think outside the box and first i did not came up with anything that was relevant to the case of learning php but then i just figured it out on the spot don't fall in to the trap of closing out your self and just thinking like the computer and test it and debug it until it works think logical and then return the logical in a sentence you think of in to the snippet of code you want to produce use anything to help you out in the world to help you out don't sitt for long hours reading about php hopping something will stay inside your brain just code something at first in your brain with the simple use of words and thoughts asking for guide ens from others is a good way but in the same time your brain wants to figure stuff out by it self but some times the soul of a person is not connected right to the ways and logic of the brain so the signals don't get connected 1+1 = 2 that simple as most pepole say and i have heard it allot to day everything is easy when you know the answer to it, and i refaced that in to seek and seek until you find your answer but don't let it be as hard because you don't know the answer to it and not even the right facts and in this case the right syntax and the ways of php think outside the box and learn for you as you and not for anything or anybody else knowledge is what makes you powerful and to have a know how even about the simple thing of doing an open and closing tags for php is a step up in the world of php.
i will continue this tutorial or more like my mind on text later on ps: all comments are most likely to be that omg what is he talking about maybe but it's ok a comment is an comment better then no comment "Might be hard to read the text as i have not edit it yet so i will do that now and please read it over and over again if you don't understand my theory. And i will gladly explain anything you want.
Thank you for your time. Codefreek
I WILL EDIT THE TEXT SOON!

This aint much of a tutorial I don't think. Tutorials are made to help a user... this is just a theory of yours. I don't think people need to know how to code, they just pick up their own way of coding as they go along.
This is quite messy to be honest, best bet is to separate your sentences into paragraphs, cause to me it's just a jumbled mess, and mostly what Dr John said.
"The reasonable man adapts himself to the conditions that surround him... The unreasonable man adapts surrounding conditions to himself... All progress depends on the unreasonable man." - George Bernard Shaw
I would suggest that you first unify the whole text into one font size and color. After that, try to break the large blocks of text into sentences. That way, someone might actually read your opinions.
Thirdly, what do you expect us to say? Your little story does not imply someone replying to it, so...I guess you get my point. Thirdly, anyone can write something about their lives and whether programming is easy to learn or not. In the programming world, it's simple: if you like this stuff, you learn it well, if you don't, then nobody can make you like it. Anybody can live a happy life with or without programming.
I have optimistic thoughts, even though sometimes (if not always) life's a bitch.
