Not a true programmer, but from my experience hacking things together:

  1. Understand part of the process involves playing and experimentation. Solving the root cause of the bug will involve meandering through a bunch of how-to articles, tutorials, and stack overflow.

  2. Quickly learn that 95% of the problems you are facing are not unique, and someone else has already done it (e.g. Google it).
