So, what I want to ask you, since I know that there are many great programmers in this community, is that when in your life did you think you become really good ( I mean College, workplace, etc. ). And do you think the ability to become a great programmer is native or is it just hunger for knowledge and hard work ?
I have my doubts at the moment because I'm not really good with algorithms but I want to become better, so I began to read Introduction to Algorithms by CLR, is that the right way to start or should have I choosed Sedgewick's Algorithms book.
EDIT: If it matters to anything, next year I'll go to college and this is why I'm asking, I love coding but I'm aware that what I've done so far doesn't even reach the complexity of real projects, but am I making a mistake trying to follow this path if I'm not good at algorithms yet ?
