Just kidding!

My latest learning adventure is coding, which kicked-off Wednesday morning when I completed Hour of Code. Though not completely ignorant to coding (bit of VBA, bit of MATLAB), I'm no expert. Do I need to be an expert? Well, I need to be proficient so that I can do just enough to support my research efforts. I've yet to quantify what just enough is, but I'll know it when I see it. For know, I'm using Codeacademy to pick up new skills and having too much fun doing it! If you follow me on twitter, you've likely seen my coding adventure tweets. I'm tweeting my learning for one simple reason.

I don't know, but I can learn.

Me. With the so-called "terminal degree". Me, an old person. I don't know-it-all. YET. I'm hoping to write a program that will take care of that for me.


One response so far
