You’ve tried to comprehend this blog and might have decided to continue or start with programming. Maybe it will be a career for you, or maybe it will be a hobby… You’ll need some pointers to make sure you continue on the right track and get the most enjoyment out of your newly chosen activity…
I’ve been programming for a considerable amount of time… pretty long actually!! So long that there was this period of time that I considered it incredibly boring to me… At the time that I wrote a draft for this post, I knew about 12 programming languages and could learn new ones in about a day to a week depending on how quirky they were…

Eventually though things just became grey and couldn’t hold my interest anymore… This doesn’t mean I think programming is boring, or that you will think it’s boring, only that I had found it uninteresting …
What I discovered after I managed to process this train of thought is that … It’s not the languages that matter but what you do with them….
People who can code in the world of technology companies are as common as finding ants in an ant hill(I know its a weird analogy, well deal with it…) and get no respect.On the other hand, people who can code in biology, medicine, government, sociology, physics, history, and mathematics are respected and can do amazing things to advance those disciplines.

Finally, I’ll say that learning to create software changes you and makes you different. You may find that people treat you harshly because you can create software, maybe using words like “Nerd.” Maybe you’ll find that because you can dissect their logic that they hate arguing with you. You may even find that simply knowing how a computer works makes you annoying and weird to them.
To this I have just one piece of advice: They can just Drop Dead…!!
The world needs more weird people who know how things work and who love to figuring it all out! When they treat you like this, just remember that this is your journey, not theirs. Being different is not a crime, and people who tell you as such are just jealous that you’ve picked up a skill they never even in their wildest dreams could acquire.
You can code.
And that, is pretty damn cool.!!!
