Sometimes it's good to remember the happiness we felt at the beginning of our journey.
Do you remember? Almost like a welcoming ritual, the first program we learn to code in any language is the famous "Hello world".
When you're not expecting it, that day comes: you're sitting in front of a computer. 🖥️
We hear the sound of the keys and for the first time we type a line of code. On the screen we see the dreamy Hello World! 🌏
It greets us and celebrates our first grain of sand in this world. Our first grain of bits. It's the beginning.
It makes us feel powerful. As if we have the ability to do even the impossible. Welcome to the world of programming 🖥️
Sometimes developing becomes frustrating. It makes me angry, it makes me sick, it makes me ill. Sometimes it makes me feel like I can't do it.
That's why it's good to go back to feeling like that little person who was discovering everything for the first time.
My first Hello World was in C++
Pure magic. How happy I was!
Do you remember in which language was your first Hello World? Tell me :)
