I have stated picking up on programming the last few weeks. I took a class to help me build the fundamentals. My teacher just gives us an assignment and then runs it works he gives a perfect grade. I wish that he would take the time to look at our code and tell us how we can more effectively do the task with less calculations. Should I be focusing on doing things more efficiently at this point? Or should I try to grasp the programming language and how it works and then re-adjust and worry about run time later on?
I recently created a binary converter that did the calculations, set the digits in an array, and the output the array contents backwards. The program works, but is there a much better way to do this?
