Thoughts on beginning your journey learning to code

We’ve all struggled with getting started – whether it’s a new workout program, new programming language or home improvement project. Sometimes we make up obstacles to our goals. Sometimes we build existing obstacles to up to mythic proportions! Whyyyy do we do this? And how do we prevent this bad habit from getting in the way of attempting to accomplish goals we set for ourselves?

One great way is to share our experiences with each other. It’s always encouraging to hear stories of success or unexpected ways people reached an end goal. This week, let’s take a look at the experiences and knowledge of some inspiring folks who are going after their goals with gusto and reaping the rewards.
