Optimization

What is it?
Doing more things with less stuff.

Sometimes this is expressed experientially in that user feedback isn't coming back quick enough. Other times it's a real problem, e.g. you are getting input at some rate X, but you can only process it at some rate ¾X, and thus you are in trouble. Oftentimes the "stuff" is runtime related, but other limiting factors may include things like bitrate or power consumption.

the hardest part of coding is when something might not be on the output and you cant find it in your code its so frustrated finding the code that will make your output go wrong , when you editing your code , sometimes you will be amazed if how does the code run or it might be turn to an error

What's the hardest part of coding in your opinion and why?

Finding errors, missing codes or somethings else?
For me, that hardest part of coding is when you forget the SYMBOLS, specially the semicolon. :think:

Learning, which is hard, but at the same time it's alway pleasure to learn smth new.
Finding bugs. Often it is hard, but the feeling when you find an error, fix it and everything works fine is one of the best feelings in the world :) Incomarable with anything in the world :)

The hardest part about coding is when for me the code looks absolutely pristine and perfect, yet the output isn't what I had intended.
It's like typing 2+2 in the calculator and it displays 6. And you look under the hood and find out that 2+2 should technically and literally return a 4. But it returns 6, and then you have to go through all 43,423 lines of code just to find ONE SINGLE misplaced value in an if statement and you almost cry from mixed emotions of anger and relief.

But, it's well worth it.

The hardest part in coding for me is turning an idea or task into a workable model for your program. When I first started coding I would directly work on a program and do trial and error until it was somewhat functional. This approach was flawed because I might have overlooked something and might need to change the entire program to add one feature. The current approach I use is I take a piece of paper and write what I want to accomplish. I write a simple algorithm and then check that algorithm for possible flaws and make changes on it. After I'm happy with what I got then I change the algorithm into a program. It saves me a lot of time and would save you a lot of time too because you'll know exactly what to do.

This approach applies more to web applications than design, though. If you're wondering how to create a design from scratch using HTML and CSS then:

* Make a rough design of how you want your site to look.
* Use the final design to decide how you should code it
* Code the site and make necessary adjustments
* If it doesn't look good even after improvisation then start from scratch with a new design. Making a beautiful design is no piece of cake.

Well, that's my opinion. Others may have conflicting opinions and I would be happy to hear your thoughts. :)

I have a unfortunate experience in coding and i think this one hits the top, when asking about the hardest part of coding. It was when i was in college and my team have a project about lighting automation. After several days of working with the hardware and HMI, the prototype for room lighting automation is come to the testing point. A desktop is assigned to be monitoring the whole rooms lighting sequence using a control unit connected to relays that control the behavior of the lights. The relays are controlled by the desktop through the parallel port via VB program.

During the testing sequence a short circuit occurred, damaging the desktop and unfortunately frying the hardware...including the hardisk:violent: you see the picture?

The hardest part in coding is when you have to do it all over again :emerg:

The hardest part for me is coding the CSS. I don't have any problems with writing codes for the front-end and back-end functions but I am really having a hard time designing and placing the layouts of the elements in my sites.

The next hard thing for me is to actually start coding. I find it hard to find the motivation to start coding for a website. But once I start coding, I can't stop until it's all done. :D
