Anyone can code!

Anyone can learn to code.

Coding is not just a skill reserved for a select few. It’s a skill that anyone can learn. Yes, that includes you, your partner, your children, and even your parents and granny. It’s like thinking, breathing, or living. It’s something we all do, whether we realize it or not. And just like speaking a language, coding is easy once you understand the fundamentals.

The hang-up for most people is they don’t know how to do it. The only prerequisite for speaking a language is thought. And thought is code.

Think about it: every minute, our brains process millions of bodily sensations and respond with actions. That’s essentially coding! You’re already doing it without even realizing it. Here are some examples.

If “ow”, pull back leg.

If “hot”, pull back your hand.

If “hungry”, go get food.

See? You’re coding. It’s that simple.

Don’t believe me? Let’s add some fancy “markers” to the sentences above that clarify.

If ("ow") {
     pull back leg
If ("hot"){
     pull back hand
if ("hungry") {
     go get food

Yes, it looks more like code now. The markers make the sentences look like code. However, they’re not necessary. These markers will have different meanings depending on the language we’re using.

This is day zero of a series of posts where I’ll teach you how to code. It’s very easy, and I promise you’ll know how to code by the end.

And the best part? Learning to code is not as difficult as you might think. It’s a straightforward process that anyone can master with the right guidance. By the end of this series of posts, you’ll know how to code.

So don’t be intimidated. You can do this. Let’s embark on this journey together and unlock the endless possibilities that coding can offer.
