Every programmer likely remembers how they learned to code. For guys like Bill Gates and Paul Allen, the magic began on the Teletype Model 33. For others, it may have been a few days at a coding workshop like the one I attended for journalists just a few weeks ago.
Learning where, how and in what ways your developer days began can be both beneficial and inspirational for others. That’s why Amber Case, co-founder of Portland-based Geoloqi, wants to gather as many of those stories as possible for a compilation that can help people understand what it takes to learn how to code.
Case, who gets asked a few times per week about how people can learn to program, spent six months coming up with questions for this survey. If you have a few minutes, head on over and contribute your story — it just might help inspire the next great coder.
