Programming Styles

Top Down:
A program is created in terms of classes or methods, which are in turn identified by even lower level methods until the program is complete.

Bottom Up:
Build the language up towards the program. Create new functions and operators that make it seem like the language was custom built for the program.

Pretend magical parts of the program do certain wonderful and conveneint things, and program off of that. Then go fill out the magic parts when you feel like it.
