re: How Dyslexia helped me become a programmer VIEW POST

Nice post, very inspiring! I don't have dyslexia and I still can't remember that piece of code, not in a way that would allow me to write it myself from scratch. In fact, I copy paste most of times from stack overflow things that require a certain, more obscure syntax. The only things I do remember correctly are certain function names from certain libraries. That's kinda it really. We're not machines, we aren't supposed to remember code too well.

 

I agree, I can never remember methods line by line or word by word, my main issue was remembering how they would work and the structure I used to outline them. Generally once you've used a method so many times you can write it freely without having to look at a resource, but that wasn't the case.

 

Oh, I get it now. It's a good thing that programming is more about understanding than memorizing.
