The point is not driving drunk, the point is the world is being overtaken by software.

Python / Ruby / JavaScript

You've seen these programming languages thrown around - but you've heard it's hard to learn.

True.

But, it's oh so satisfying. ( way more fun than Mandarin Chinese )

But the Impostors! ( all of us )

It's very hard to feel competent with programming unless you build something you can use. There's always something new to learn and new ways to organize the myriad inputs and outputs that arise as more and more of us write software.

How does one start to learn coding? Start small and not alone. Try to find somebody else you can learn with. There's a lot to learn but not rush.

Whether you learn best by watching or reading, you'll need to get experience in your fingers. It's best to have a mentor that can help pull out the map and show you when you're on a dead-end road. Other than that, it's up to you to practice and ask questions and copy other people's ideas.

In 2021, I'm starting CohortCode. It's a project that will organize people into small groups to increment their coding skills and knowledge. It'll make them all more valuable as the world gets overtaken by the robots.

You're not starting in 2021, you already started. Congrats! Thanks for sharing. I heard I might be a cofounder as of now lol

"Start small and not alone" - foundational! Looking forward to seeing this evolve.
