[q via=”Steve Jobs”]”Everybody in this country should learn how to program a computer… because it teaches you how to think.”[/q]
I remember the first time I was able to write some code and that code then show up online through a browser. It was a huge moment for me. The idea that I could write a few lines of code and with a few keystrokes that information could be seen by anyone in the world was what would shape the rest of my life. I don’t consider myself a programmer (apparently knowing HTML and CSS REALLY well doesn’t count, I swear we are the bastards of the web world), but knowing a programming language helps give you a better perspective on problem solving.
