While it may be true that coding is something that anybody can do, that doesn’t take away from how difficult it is to learn. Join us for the second part of our conversation with brilliant software engineer and instructor Bryan Berry as we dive into what it takes to learn to code. Early in our conversation, we focus on the extra non-language-specific skills that you need to pick up to become a fully-fledged developer. From specializing in certain roles to deciding what type of programmer you want to be, we talk about the difficult choices that beginner coders need to make. After reflecting on why programming involves continual learning, Bryan shares some anecdotes from The Codeless Code website. Later, we discuss how early coders can overcome imposter syndrome before touching on why networking is so useful to growing your skills. Tune in for more insights on learning how to code.
