Discussion on: What's a song that illustrates your coding journey?

Getting into software development for me was a big step in my life, and I didn't have a lot of clarity before that.

I literally took a ~28 hour train ride to New York City with no job lined up, no money and only the idea that there was something out there for me now that I had this skill.

On that note, this song is how I felt:

The subject matter in the song is much heavier than what I was dealing with, but in terms of the journey, this is metaphorically big for me.

Thanks for sharing. I have been listening to this and it is a very relatable song. And I had no idea that this was Tracey Chapman after hearing it in so many bookstores and cafes.
