Sorry. I have to reply:
int f_cks_given;
while ( !$end_of_video ) {
$end_of_video = play_more_video();

int f_cks_given;
while ( !$end_of_video ) {
$end_of_video = play_more_video();

Iterative Rhetoric 101...f*_cks_given should remain constant at zero :p

Coding is definitely everywhere, and I love how they get all these that made it bag to hype it...however, the reality is sitting behind a monitor staring at thousands of lines of code for 10 hours a day...boring as hell with a huge burn out rate.

I stopped after learning ANSI COBOL.
Yeah, I'm that old.

Yeah haven't found lots of opportunity with my Aerospace degree. So I`ve switched to software, and getting a LOT more interviews now.

I do recommend taking a theory of computation course. Really useful when designing algorithms. Especially search algorithms where brute force methods can take O(n!) time as opposed to O(n) time from more efficient algorithms.

I learned some Basic on my brother's pre-Windows pc when I was in jr high in the late `70s. Then I took a quarter of Fortran as a requirement for my degree. That was on a mainframe and a teletype machine, i.e. no monitor. Because of that experience, learning basic javascripting and php was much easier when I was building websites. Heck of a lot more useful than all the calculus I was forced to take in school. The hard part of programming is the patience it takes to find the tiny mistake you made somewhere that makes it not run. At least it`s not like when my brother learned to be a programmer using millions of punch cards. He now writes programs that are the brains of HVAC systems. Not glamorous like games but pays the bills.
