It’s funny that you are talking about how this article made you realize how accessible code is/could have been without systemic barriers. As someone ideally positioned to enter coding/programming (and who has a twin brother who is, in fact, a programmer) I could not be more driven away after reading What is Code (no offense to Paul Ford — journalistically it’s impressive and thorough).

I’m unclear if it’s the article’s approach to explaining code that didn’t gel well with how I learn or think but I struggled with incorporating all of this into a larger framework. Just my two cents.

Side note: Couldn’t agree with you more on how unfortunate the brevity of the sexism section was — especially given the structure of the article, it could have been expanded.
