For 2017 I have set myself a goal to learn to code. I have been in charge of IT and development departments for more than a decade, whilst having a great all round technical understanding and in some cases deep technical knowledge, the one thing I have never been able to do is code. I have tried many times to learn but retaining what I learnt in the last lesson a week before and not practicing it has left me still unable to code.
So for 2017 my goals are to learn to code well enough that I can use API’s, move data to a database, manipulate the results and display them again either online or on my computer. I would also like to encourage others to learn with me.
