How and Why
“The beginning of wisdom is this: Get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding.” Proverbs 4:7
I do believe learning the How is very important when getting started. As children we learned primarily by exploring the things we were fascinated with. Most of the time it’s out of curiosity, excitement, not purely for learning sake.
We learn the How first because we need to get the job done. We learn the Why next because it became necessary to understand.
As a developer I relate to the notion of learning How to do something before learning Why. When we’re first starting off, we spend a lot of time searching the web, copying and pasting code from sites like stackoverflow.com . We’re mostly concerned about getting the job done and not so much Why things work but just that they work.
Eventually we get to the place where we need to understand the context of somethings and Why they exists. It’s great having knowledge, but understanding is the next step.
