re: Recursion . I understand that recursion is where a function calls itself, until it doesn't. But given a problem statement, transforming it to recur...
 

It took me so long to understand recursion, like 2-3 years before I felt comfortable thinking recursively. Making recursive solutions early on required just throwing shit at a wall and seeing what worked. Now it (recursion, not throwing shit at walls) is my favorite way to solve problems.
