All in AWE:Day 1
What excites you about coding? How do you think it can change the world?
I will begin by saying i never thought i’d find myself looking at code. In my pursuit to set my self apart from everyone one else on internet social platforms I found myself running into the same set of problems. I found I just didn’t have the knowledge of how to apply the readily available tools in front of me. Hence the birth of the question “How do I do this?” It was like trying to navigate in a dark room in a strangers how is had never visited. Scary yet also thrilling. I feel a sense of urge to understand my surroundings and explore everything i can palpate at my fingertips.
Theres quite an elevated feeling when put to the task of engaging a problem to look for solutions. It’s a type of creativity that in my opinion widens the narrow view of the typical mindset when focusing. To be able to look at something step back and expand the peripheral mindset to fulfill an objective. I think it can change the world by showing people how to think “outside the box”
