Understanding ‘programming’ at least at the level of pseudocode and configuration, seems to be a life skill we’ll all need. Why? “I can’t get Outlook to display the date field” “I can’t get rid of that custom-menu feature in Office programs” “I spend all day cutting and pasting the same data back and forth, I wonder if a macro would make this easier”
So where to begin. At work, programming, by non-IS folk is kind of frowned upon. Installing languages like PERL or Python is simply not an option for me. So I do this at home. But for the novice non-IS programmer it’s nice to have some tools you can use at work.
