    For a lot of coding jobs, especially the ones that you do at the same place for years and years, it is best if you didn't use your genius; born with or learnt

    Katie, this is such an awesome account. Thanks for sharing. When you compare notes with the folks that entered with you in the journalism track, how are people feeling about how their educational focus is manifesting - both in terms of generating the skills they want, but also in terms of efficacy in getting to go drive the impact that that they want to bring? I'm hoping all are stoked, but curious what you're seeing.

    I'm just getting into this, and perhaps it's a mildly difficult transition to go from classroom learning to learning online. I have learned how to code in CS101 at Udacity, for starters, I haven't been able to pass the final exam, yet though. I found it difficult, but I'll try again. I also recently did the Learn to Programming fundamentals course at Coursera. I got an 80% on their final exam, but I failed the class do to late assignments and such. I'm currently going through "Coding 4 GOOD." It's a lot of work with the readings and coding at Code Academy, but I like it. Even if I don't win or get selected for the final project, at least I've learned something, and I now have solid tools to look back on so that I can build my own websites. After I'm done with "Coding 4 Good." I'm going to give the Udacity CS101 another shot. I'm pretty used to the online learning platforms, now. Thanks for all the information.

    Java was designed and most newer codes emulated and even C+ incorporated the means and ease for anyone to learn how to code.

    Few reasons why...
    A: So anyone could learn.
    B: Promote easy comprehension in figurative reasoning.
    C: If the world ended... Someone could figure it out.

    Don't ever keep a Windows disc.. Because if the world ended... An all you had was windows -- After 30 days you couldn't use that OS anymore.
