I decided to learn programming 10 months ago (on 10th July 2016). I was successful… kind of.
This wasn’t my first attempt at learning to code. I’d made dozens of previous attempts to learn to program from books, YouTube, Codecademy, and many other places. I never managed to stick it out for more than a few days (or hours, in some cases).
Looking back at my past attempts, they failed due to my incorrect assumption that programming was only about learning the syntax of a language.
