Thanks for this article. I also started off in the film industry and got interested in programming. I recently got a masters degree in Software System Design (basically front end developing) with no prior experience coding, and just landed my first job a couple months after graduating. I have been feeling frustrated with myself because I thought I ‘got it’, but realize that I have so much more to learn. I’m learning so much at my new job and your article gives me hope that it’s all going to make much more sense over time.
