Great article man…I’ve been trying to learn to code on and off for a few years now, hitting many of the same roadblocks. Recently, I’ve been more ‘on’ and will take a lot of this advice to heart. Appreciate you sharing this.
Brad, I’m in my 40’s and I found your article very inspiring. The idea of “immersing”…wow, I would be a bit overcome with all the responsibilities I have with my current job, my side job, my children, life in general. However, your article gives me hope that if I were to apply my focus, I too could learn how to code. Question though, could you explain exactly what “a strongly-typed language” is?
Thanks for taking the time to write this article. I’m 30 and and have been learning to code, but that voice in the back of my head was making me question if it was too late for me to redirect my career. This has me back on track. Thank you again!
