Coding is the closest thing we have to a superpower right now

I’ve started to learn coding! It’s something I’ve always wanted to do and I’ve been greatly encouraged by Bryan.

It’s a magical world man!

How I’m learning:

  • I’m spending at least 2-3 hours every evening reading up and compiling / debugging code
  • I’m using online tutorials and writing out the code (by the way I’m learning objective-c and using the Xcode compiler)
  • Searching for help online so that I can figure things out myself before asking for help – Stackoverflow is an incredibly powerful resource.
  • Tracking my progress with Evernote
  • Sharing my Trello board/Evernote notes with my mentors to ask for advice/help

What programs I’m using:

  • GitHub – to store my projects
  • Trello – project management
  • Evernote – my diary and note-taking. It also helps me track my progress and helps me to stay disciplined. Also, offline notes is incredibly useful because I can read this during my daily commute, where I sometimes can’t have access to the Internet. [Sample note screenshot below]

I’m so excited that I’ve actually managed to create my first Hello World and in fact, being able to debug and figure out your mistake is incredibly rewarding.

One last thing:
