Guys. I started with JS, now primarily code in Python, and learning Java for robotics. Coding on and off for the past 4 years. I understand most things, I can tell what code does, but I think I’m a shit programmer. I also find myself running out of ideas for simple things. I’m sad because of this cause I get most programming jokes, and live in this community.

The reason why I’m saying this is because of someone in robotics (keep in mind that it’s my first year in robotics, first time coding in Java) said (jokingly) that he thought I “was a good programmer”. Probs overthinking this, but still tears me up, realizing he’s probably right.

    Fuck that guy. You don’t have to be the best, and, well, you’re not, but don’t listen to anyone who tells you you’re shit.

    Alright, there are 2 ways to take this.

    Option 1) Just assume that you are a shit programmer. Become cripplingly depressed. Drop out of school. Die, cold and alone, while living in a van down by the river.

    Option 2) Fuck that shit. Tell that guy to go fuck himself. Put work into being a better programmer, regardless of whether or not you are currently good. Work hard Do that shit everyday. Get even better. Get paid. Get out of your current world and into a better one. Waste it all on hookers and blow. Spend every waking moment split between coding and hedonism. One day realize that you've spent these last few years of your life on frivolity and become cripplingly depressed. Look for something to fill the metaphorical hole in your heart. Seek out a doctor for the literal one, due to all the blow. Eventually die, cold and alone, in a van down by the river.

    Seriously though, you do you. He is just an ass. Work hard and you'll be a good programmer one way or another.
