Chuck Severance: “everyone [みんな] should learn programming”.
I agree. In my opinion, reading and writing computer code has become the new minimum educational standard. If you don’t know how to do computer programming, then in my view, this has now become tantamount to not knowing the alphabet of your first human language. Or perhaps it’s like being a very inexperienced young child and walking into a room full of adults who are all talking about stuff you don’t have the slightest understanding of.
Learning programming is not only fun (especially as taught by Dr. Chuck in the courses above), creative, and lucrative, but (perhaps most importantly), it teaches you how to think coherently. If you learn to program, you’ll become a better communicator with other humans too, because you’ll learn how to express your thoughts unambiguously, and you’ll encounter fewer misunderstandings with friends and family.
If you’re dedicated, all five courses in this specialization can be completed within the 7 day free trial. Just do it. But don’t stop there. Like learning any new human language, you will very quickly lose the skill if you don’t write at least some code every day. This specialization is full of recommendations on what to do next to continue to hone your coding skills learned in this course.
This specialization will give you the “ABCs” of programming, but it’s up to you to continue learning and practicing afterwards.
