FULL DISCUSSION
 

That a programming language is just a tool to an end. It’s surely important to pick the right tool, but it’s much more important to learn programming techniques rather than languages. That it is better to learn to think rather than memorizing. That there are no geniuses, only hard work and persistence.

 

Absolutely. Nobody needs to be a genius to do this. The job of an engineer is to solve problems with appropriate tooling. If you think about it, everybody commits acts of engineering every day. It's just that when in the context of computing systems, you just need to think in a different way and get used to leveraging a different set of tools.
