I think now people have enough time to learn coding. Most (if not all) people here already know how to program but I think what is in this post could still help someone in a way. You definitely should check this out. Don't forget to click the link labeled "programming resources" to read the actual blog post on dev.to.

    I don't want to sound like a jackass, but.... πŸ˜…

    Why does everyone need to learn how to code? There's more to it then typing keys on a keyboard.

    @C0D4 your right but anyway some people find it attractive and as such I wrote the most recurrent topic πŸ˜’ again πŸ˜‘πŸ˜‘

    You should do a spell check and proof read your article. Replace all the occurrences of seat with sit

    And this one is a blunder - "But you could definitely be free"

    This whole "everyone should learn to program" mindset needs to die. So many people out there have no affinity for it, and will always produce the same sort of work that you get from Karen at a paint night, 3 glasses of wine down.

    @RevThwack you're totally correct. I think I have an affinity for coding, after nearly 30 years I've always had work. My son on the other hand has zero programming aptitude, but he is good at so many other things.

    @JosiasAurel

    Okay I just checked your itch.io website. I was looking at that book about electronics you're selling there. The title says "learn electronics by ND JosiasAurel". When I open the details of that book it says you're the author. So yeah I downloaded it and it's actually a book written by Stan Gibilisco. I'm pretty sure that's illegal in many ways. You're seriously saying you wrote that book and even ask for money by that "pay what you want" concept.

    I would take that down before someone reports you to the authorities.

    @Creep just to say I don't remember writing "by MD Josias aurel". Itch.io automatically attributes it and again the book is not for sale.the pop-up is in case you wish to donate. The book was originally published for free (according to the site where I downloaded it) and I just decided to share on my page.

    @JosiasAurel so, people can donate money to you for publishing a book you didn't write, just because you wanted to share it on your page. So you're basically distributing a free book with the possibility to get paid for it? I'm also pretty sure you gotta be the owner of the project to be allowed to upload it on itch.io

    @Creep "owner of the project πŸ™„πŸ™„ not really" - As I said, it's just a share. But that option to donate on itch.io is in case you like the fact someone shared a helpful book. I guess I am pretty sure

    Share a link to the author's site, not the file itself, unlike the license allows this. Otherwise this is fraud.

    @saucyatom exactly. It's not even mentioned that it isn't his property, instead it says "Author: @JosiasAurel".

    @JosiasAurel
    Having that pay what you want option enabled is hilarious. You think you deserve any money for sharing something and saying you created it?

    @Creep when you post something on itch.io, it will always put those information. It says author: publisher_name. The best way to know who did what is to use the piece of software or book and see the author name written in book. Not on the site. I thought I was clear on that I was not the one who wrote that.

    @JosiasAurel I'm afraid that just because you were able to download this book from another site, you do not automatically have the right to publish on another site. The original download may have had licence conditions that prevent this, or it may have been from an illegal site. The actual book (admittedly a later edition) is available to buy on Amazon for $21 so this suggests that it was never available for free.

    You could try reaching out to the author, he has a YouTube channel

    https://youtube.com/user/...

    He is almost certainly still the owner of the copyright, and he might be happy for you to share it. He might even be happy for you to keep any money you get.

    It really would be the right thing to do, as you get older and find people copying your work, or making money from your work without giving recognition to you or following any licence conditions, you'll be feeling pretty peeved.

    @nibor Thanks for information. Copyright is something I always like respecting but the site where I downloaded was claiming it was totally free. I will remove it from my page right now and inform the author of my error. Thanks alot. I will definitely always look for more info before doing such a thing. Have a nice day 🀩
