Myths about Coding
📌 Coding means you can fix my internet - "Please mom, just turn the router off and on."
📌 Coding is boring - Take a look at your brain activity while coding and this myth is quickly busted. Coding is almost like getting lost in a good book, taking you on an adventure in your own mind; problems to solve, functions to try, and objects to manage.
📌 Coding requires strong math skills - I've met a lot of great Software Engineers and programmers who were at most mediocre at math. There is some cross over, you'll be working with numbers and solving problems, but the majority of coding really is logic and organization.
📌 Coding is for Nerds - I've seen this myth perpetuated both by haters and programmers. Whether it's derogatory or fanatically embraced, it is not true. When you're coding, you'll be speaking and writing in another language, a language that gives you the power and ability to bring an idea to life. If you must assume something, assume that coding is for people who like to create and solve problems.
📌 Coding requires a genius IQ - While having a higher IQ can definitely help in the problem-solving department, it's not a requirement for coding. Different programming roles require different levels of problem-solving skills. The only difference between me and someone with a higher IQ is the amount of time it takes for our brains to solve a problem.
📌 Coding is only for boys - Not true, I've met almost every type of coder gender and ethnicity wise, and frankly many are more talented than me. If you want to create something, work with tech, and contribute to the future, then it doesn't matter who you are, coding is for you.
📌 Coding instantly makes you a hacker - Ok, busted, this one is true 💻💰💪 Don't piss us off 😛
🔥 This is C# but I'm wearing my C++ hat to give me extra brainpower.
