RE: I feel like giving up on programming altogether!

Someone did a study a long while back and the average amount of debugged
code written by a coder in a week was around 100 lines.  Now think of that
and think that Android has 12 million lines of code.  Now that study has to
be a bit flawed unless we started coding before we started using a calendar.
Of course we all know that all code is not bug free.  

 Oh in case anyone doesn't want to do the work If 1 person started writing
the whole code base of Android and we assumed it was bug free and went by
the above 100 lines of code a week.  It would take 2307 years in a 40 hour
week.

Of course this is why open source is so good it gets thousands of people
working on similar problems to create better solutions.

actually, most programs above the very basic beginner modules don't work the

first time around

and as the others have said, debugging is always long and frustrating.

in fact my instructor said I could expect to spend one third my total time 
programming, and two thirds debugging

keep your cool and you can do it!
