I’m following the lead of Joshua Kemp who’s blog “Confessions of an Unlikely Developer” has been helpful to me. His first post was titled “Hello World”. From what I understand anytime someone begins to learn a programming language “Hello World” is the first line they are taught to print on the screen. Joshua is an unlikely developer because his former job was shoeing horses!
I guess I feel I’m an unlikely web developer because I’m over 50 and programming looks to be young person’s game. I’m going to ignore the “I’m too old” excuse and believe that you can teach an old dog new tricks!
I’m blogging to:
1. Hold myself accountable to study.
2. Keep a record of my journey which may be helpful to others
3. To meet like minded people along the way.
