Discussion on: Is Programming for me?

If you're passionate, keep doing it. Tenacity and persistence is your best chances paired up with passion. I know, for an impatient person that's a tough ask (which is me -- if I was told that programming takes a long time to learn...) and you keep learning all the time! You'll find a way.

I still don't get things as quickly as much as I want to. Ever. If anything I'm really impatient. I just remember rolling around perl (don't ask!) and vanilla javascript when I was really, really first starting out and had no clue. I just decided to play jokes and make pretty things.

I think I'm still kind of doing that, really. I just got more efficient at it.
