The Subtle Art of Coding
What is code?
Computer code is the language that underpins all computer software. Unlike human language, it provides a very specific and unambiguous set of instructions for the computer to follow, which allows you to create a wide range of different functions.
How to write code?
Writing code is like telling a toddler what to do. You must be specific, simple and persistent. Over complicating a project will kill it.
How can Social Coding help?
When you get stuck on a project, it often helps to explain what you are trying to do to a fellow developer. This is where Open Source Coding comes in. Put simply, Open Source Coding is collaborative coding: a team of people, all working on the same project to help each other achieve the same goals.
