What's your opinion on this question?

Are loops the hardest aspect to learn in programming?? And if they are not to you, based on how to understand iterations in loops, what will you tell a beginner who is learning loops?

Mofey How long have you been learning to program and working on loops? It all comes down to putting it to practice and applying it to logic you're trying to implement. While loops may feel difficult to grasp at the moment, you'll eventually reach a point where constructing loops is as effortless as constructing a sentence comprised of a subject with nouns, a predicate with verbs, and other grammatical parts to express a complete and coherent thought. Paul K Sadler Same goes for recursion, which is essentially a self calling functional loop. 😉

Airree what if they are at the top of pretty much every course because it is better to start with the hardest topic ??

David Carroll yes I think loops have been the hardest to learn in programming. Why I'm asking the question is because loops is still the remaining part of programming I haven't been able to wrap my head around.

Hmm nice Paul K Sadler, I guess its different men with different strength and weaknesses

Definitely not, loops aren't that difficult. If they would be harder, they wouldn't be at the top of pretty much every course. Sometimes it is easy to understand loops, like a basic for loop, but if you are faced with a more difficult loop, like the ones you asked previously, you should go through each iteration, and then it will come more naturally

Mofey Do you think loops have been the hardest to learn in programming? I'm trying to understand why you are asking this question.

Ok @Airree

Mofey No, recursive functions have been the hardest thing for me so far.

Well then, why do they always start with a hello world program, then variables, then control structures... For me, it doesn't seem like these topics are that difficult to wrap your head around
