I don’t think there are many things in the world which look as boring from the outside as coding. Someone is sat there, entering symbols on a keyboard all day.
The truth is … coding is a lot of fun. Even though there is work involved in learning the basics, once they’ve been learned it’s a platform for pure creativity. Those symbols are making something work - whether that be a website, robot, game, or whatever - the limits are just the creator’s imagination.
The secret about programmers is many don’t just enjoy writing code, they love it.
