Can one be a programmer and be comp illiterate?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey yall, I don't know much about how computers work, but I intend to find out. Seems like this site has a lot of info. I learned what I know on an ancient dinosaur. A brother lappy from way back... well, you get what I'm sayin. Hope to get to know some of you a little more.

Learning the basics about computers is far easier than learning how to program. But i find it to be essential to know the basics about how they work in order to be better at what you do
