Another update on learning to code.
The course says I’m done with loops now, moving onto functions.
I have a feeling that for the first several months (or years, or maybe even forever), I’ll be copying other people’s code in order to make things that work. There’s a lot of stuff to remember, a lot of working parts to fit together, and it’s 100x easier to just copy parts of someone else’s code than to write perfect code yourself (especially as a beginner).
Part of me says “that’s plagiarism!”, but another part of me suspects that’s what every coder in the world does.
The work continues.
