There is no "set" time. for anyone. We are all creatures of habit, and basically lazy.
As a result, if you can look at things you are good at in "life", you will find that you will fairly quickly become fluent (automatic) in those areas in programming.
For example; My strongest area is in efficiency. I have found that I seem to recognize patterns far faster than those I've met, or know.
As a result; while I do not qualify myself as an expert in Perl, by any means. I can
rip apart a program created an "expert programmer" in seconds, and more; remove, or re-write
portions of that program quite easily. Maybe that just makes me more a "Hacker", than a
You will most probably find that you will become proficient in those same areas, where programming is concerned -- think "habit" && "basically lazy". It (those areas) comes "easily" to you. :-)
P.S. Great meditation BTW. Thanks for posting it!
