Hello All, My name is Nik.
I restarted my coding journey about 3 months ago. The last time was 14 years ago with HTML, but that didn't last long. I had too many projects going at once and dropped it in favor of another project. This time I started with Python. It went a lot better because python is the starting point for all of my projects now. I view any and all work as some form of a project, compartmentalizing like this helps prevent me from working on several projects at once and giving each one it's deserved attention. This process is something that would have helped 14 years ago.
My coding specialty will be home automation. I've got a long way to go and lots to learn. Deep Learning, Machine Learning, C++, and home web interfaces are on my list at the moment.
I do not listen to music while coding, or much at all, I find it distracting. My family will put it on, and when that happens I just ignore the music and let them enjoy it.
