I have been questioning which language to focus my novice coding energy on, and have concluded that I need to figure out a couple things:
- Which language feels easiest to me
- Which will help me do the things I want to do
Yesterday, I decided my mission is to figure out something I want to do in order to address the second question. Well, it’s like Zach psychically picked up on my thoughts, (and I know that’s what internet marketers everywhere want me to think), because I awoke to find a very helpful little message in my inbox this morning, and thought I would share!
Via Zach Simms, CEO of Code Academy:
People often ask me what programming language they should learn, and I always say the same thing: “It depends.”
