Discussion on: What if I waste my time trying to learn programming?

This is interesting. I learned programming for fun and it has always been fun. If someone finds it more difficult than fun, I would recommend doing something else with your time - you shouldn't be putting yourself in pain just because coding is trendy right now.

Thanks for the comment! I partially agree, but there are a decent number of people who self educate programming since it's a highly accessible AND a high paying career. It's an educational investment.

I can also imagine for some, coding is really frustrating until you can make something meaningful, I know that was the case for me.

But at the end of the day, yeah. I've seen some people online (usually freshman computer science students) talk about the things they hate about programming, and it's like, everything to do with programming.
