I am just transitioning to coding from a business role and my god - it seems so difficult. So much cognitive disarray. So many concepts. So much conflicting information on the internet. I do not know if I will make it through. I am taking it as a personal challenge. I believe in the growth mindset. I have learned difficult spoken languages before..This shouldn't prove more difficult. After all it's plain English with logic and symbols.
I came across a beautiful article about this phenomenon from which I borrowed the above illustration: https://www.thinkful.com/blog/why-learning-to-code-is-so-damn-hard/
