To me, thinking like a programmer means you can define the problem space and solution space. Then you could make a plan to go from the problem space into solution space.
For some tasks, you might not need a computer to do it, but a computer could help you execute it for you to test it.
Just focus on the: Think like a programmer, not think like a computer.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
