Does calculator programming help at all? - andrewgray - Aug 14, 2006 08:46 PM

A while ago I whipped up a program on my calculator where two people could play Tic-Tac-Toe against each other. I also wrote a program that converted any number into binary, where N < 1024 (otherwise the output was ultimately in scientific notation).

Do these kind of exercises help me at all when it comes to other programming?

I guess it depends on the language you used, more than anything.

The kind of thought processes are probably similar, but I doubt the language has much in common.
