Learn to Code (The Positive Way)
Updated: Jun 25, 2021
Let's be completely honest with each other - the future is code. We have automated cars, plans of Mars exploration, Google searching, robots like Sophie, mobile games, cryptocurrency like Bitcoin...and the big elephant in the room - coronavirus. In this year alone, I have seen my solopreneur business take off because of the need to find quality developers that work well remotely. Now more than ever, we need coders.
But Melissa, I don't know how to code. I don't think I can code.
Oh, but you CAN and you WILL! I will help you get there, one baby step at a time. Let's get started!
I'm not that smart to learn code.
Before we dive off into the deep end, let's get a few things situated right away - you don't have to be a math whiz (although there is some math involved) nor do you need to be some kind of child prodigy to be an expert programmer. The only skill you truly need? Curiosity. If you are curious, you will naturally want to learn more, to understand, to study. Be curious about programming, and you won't feel like programming is all that hard at all, but actually fun!
We'll be looking at what tools we need for the next post, but for now let's try to build up the mindset to begin seeing yourself as a person who can code.
