Code snippets for various programming languages and libraries
A cookbook in the programming context is collection of tiny programs that each demonstrate a particular programming concept. The Cookbook Method is the process of learning a programming language by building up a repository of small programs that implement specific programming concepts. Starting with a Hello World program and building the knowledge piece by piece on top of that.
If you are a beginner, you will probably want to start out with one language like Python and start building up your repetoire of snippets for reference and confidence. If you are a seasoned developer, you may want to start building a cookbook from scratch for a new language you have never used, or keep a cookbook for more advanced topics in a language you are already familiar with.
Here is an example of when my Cookbook comes in handy. Recently I was faced with a situation where I needed to make an HTTP request to an API, parse the JSON response, generate a CSV spreadsheet, and email the spreadsheet. Because I already had my own cookbook snippets for doing each of those three actions, it was really easy to put together a program that did what I needed it to.
Everyone has different goals with programming so identify topics relevant to your interests. Here are some ideas if you do not know where to get started.
