Hello, my name is Josh from Kenya.
Admittedly, it's been an on and off programming journey due the points communicated in that article.
I am excited to start again, I'm not giving up!
I have learned that:

  1. most programmers are efficient in one (at most two) programming languages. So, I should focus on being proficient in one language.
  2. i should not rely on online courses to map out my learning path. So, i should research one and set adjustable deadlines while learning.
  3. i should collect the right resources for my learning (50% - practice-based platforms, 30% - Online courses, and 20% - books and tutorials)
  4. joining programming communities are essential. I cannot do this alone.
