One of the best things about learning how to code is being able to create whatever is in your imagination and showcase it for the world to see. You can take something as a simple idea of a flappy bird trying to reach one end of your smartphone screen to the other while avoiding randomly generated pipes and make a fortune of it. Or take some candy canes and link them together with while having them explode and have everyone from your grandmother to your little sister try to crush these peppermints for hours out of their day. The ability to take an idea and put it on your phone is no small feet at all. However, the effort that you put into it and seeing that effort materialize itself is a joy that not many people have the privilege to know. All you have to do when it comes to coding is take things one step at a time and not put too much pressure on yourself to get things right overnight. I mean look some of the favorite apps that you use today, they all started out as ideas in the minds of the ones who created them. They took the time out to learn their craft and put in the work one character at a time until one day everything just clicked. So to my readers I say create small goals that you can see and track your progress, link up with others, and go out there and create the next facebook app. We have the limitless power and resource of the internet itself to help us realize our dreams.
Keep on hacking!
