The key to this question is to transcend the language and think in not the language you are coding in.

WAT?

Experienced polyglot programmers think in the abstract syntax tree (AST) of their own mental model of the language. One doesn't think "I need a for loop here," but rather "I need to loop over something" and translates to that to the appropriate for, or while, or iterator, or recursion for that language.

Some good advice here for any would be programer.
