SSDD50313yHe sounds like a good teacher
@SSDD yeave its not the first time i being up this story but its a 2year old one and its evolving a lot. I regret not having had a fun tutorial when iwas 14 and tried python for the first time.
After having declared 2 strings it showed me i couldt make a sentence. I was like wtf? I wanted to learn to hack. So i stopped.
Crazed21553yLearning to code is hard because it's equal mixes of theory and accepted practice, it's dry as all hell and if you're not good at it, the results won't be exciting.
People talk about learning to code at 12, but my 12 year old self didn't have the discipline or maturity to stare at documentation all day and read on computer theory and algorithms. I wanted to ride my bike and pretend and watch cartoons.
Coding can be super rewarding, but you have to be mature enough to understand why it is, and to go through the process of learning and not beating yourself up when things don't work. Coding well IS hard. Anyone that's just god tier naturally and thinks it's not can suck an egg, normal people struggle for years learning.
