I’ve loved creating things for some time. It’s why I write and make podcasts and try my hand at whatever entrepreneurial scheme I find. But I’ve come to a point where I need to do something that actually has a growing market share and pays consistently. Which is why I’m teaching myself to code.
My younger brother, Neil, is computer obsessed. He’s been looking for a part-time job, but there isn’t much for teenagers (thanks a hell of a lot, Grandma and the minimum wage). You’ll hear from him sometimes, too.
We decided that we were going to learn how to code together. I set up this blog 1) to keep us accountable, and 2) so that people could follow if they wanted (maybe it’s encouraging or something).
I have no idea how we should start. So, as a member of a top secret, super-special Facebook group, I thought I’d ask around for opinions of what we should tackle first. The consensus was to focus on Python. Then it’s on to Java, C++, C#/Unity, Swift, SQL/DevOps, and Ruby on Rails. I’m sure I’ll have to call an audible at some point, but that’s the loose schedule for now.
