I figure, if my dad who has no idea what a computer or programming is in 2018 can understand this,  anyone can

 

I’m tasking myself with taking different programming topics and breaking them down so well that a kid could understand it.

Why?

Because I could use a refresher myself and I’m sure this will help a lot of new programmers or existing programmers get better at what they do. I figure, if my dad who has no idea what a computer is in 2018 can understand this than anyone can.

I genuinely enjoy helping people understand things better and find myself offering advice often. My friends say I’m a good listener and I explain things well. I’ve been like this since I was a kid. I remember finishing my work before the rest of the class almost daily. I would then spend the rest of the time tying to  help my classmates catch up and understand their work because I was just that kind of team player.

Since I enjoyed helping people after elementary school I spent some time in high school and college tutoring peers and kids younger than me. There’s this joy I get every time I help someone complete a project or I see that “aahhhhhhhh I get it” in someone’s eyes.

First Stab – What is Programming?

Programming is the act of writing a set of instructions that will be used to perform a specific task.

For example before you learned to ties your shoes someone had to teach you how to do it (programmer). If they wrote down the steps of what you have to do to tie your shoe those steps would be the program and them writing the steps down would be programming
