What you are most proud of from the past 3 months in the Challenge course?
One, being chosen
This course was not easy for me. I am basically a self taught programmer. Sure I know a thing or two but this course really ran me through paces. There were lots of gaps in my knowledge.
Everybody should learn to code. If this sounds strange to you, try to imagine the people that fought against illiteracy, not much time ago. Probably their ideas sounded strange to many, back then. Nowadays, having quite won against illiteracy, we face a new form of it: code illiteracy. People that don’t know how to code are code illiterate. Code literacy enables a great power, a power of freedom.
Like reading and writing, coding can ( and has to! ) be fun. Through coding you can craft interactive creations, a unique and powerful medium. Being able to code you can think about something and give it life. Coding is awesome. And it’s quite simple, at its basics.
