How I Feel When I Learn To Code29 Sep 2016
Two weeks ago I started to learn C, as part of the CS50 MOOC I’m taking with some of my fellow OpenNews fellows. And I got reminded of so many feelings I had during all the other code learning experiences before.
I packed all these steps and feelings the one long GIF you can find at the top – and in a more static comic that one can find below. You might need to zoom in a bit to be able to read it. The uncanny resemblance to the Gartner Hype Cycle that some people will notice is no coincidence. Also, in case it’s not clear: These black shapy things are programming concepts.
And here are all the feelings from the GIF up there:
And for everybody who doesn’t know how to code yet and is super afraid of it: There are great tutorials these days. They all start incredible easy. And you can always just stop right after the “Unjustified Pride” step.
