Can I Be A Programmer?

I’ll never forget my satisfaction after typing in the first few lines of code I ever wrote into a black screen with a green cursor on an Apple II. I must’ve been 6 or 7 years old. It was amazing to watch the computer do what I was “telling” it to do. I don’t remember what the code was that I copied from that dusty old book, but I quickly progressed to writing my own original code after experimenting and tinkering with examples.

Today the choices of languages, frameworks, and even IDEs can be daunting and confusing, but never have there been so many resources at our disposal for learning: Wikipedia, GitHub, YouTube, etc., etc…

Now is a great time to start programming!
