    Initially, coding can be intimidating...and perhaps even boring to people who like to see big results right away. But learning to basics is all about small results that you retrieve quickly. With patience and time, you'll begin to build bigger things...beautiful things.

    It's not about slapping things on a screen. It's about testing your mind in both simple and complex conditions. You begin to question and apply logic with new angles, perhaps both practical and daring. Whether you're a scientist or a designer, learning how to code is a game-changer.
