re: If you could change one thing about learning to code, what would it be? VIEW POST


My biggest challenge when starting out was having the belief that if I got stuck on solving a problem, it would be completely up to me to figure it out. Hitting road blocks in programming assignments in college completely stressed me out and discouraged me from pursuing a career as a software engineer.

Fast forward to a few years later, I have the privilege of working on a software engineering team where "getting stuck" is an opportunity to learn and collaborate with fellow team members to solve hard problems.

If I had sooner realized that collaboration and helping each other is an important aspect of software engineering, I would have enjoyed my college programming courses more.
