In this episode, I discuss the importance of understanding why you are learning how to code. Learning how to code is incredibly difficult and knowing why you are doing this in the first place will help keep you motivated when things get tough, and trust me, they will. I also discuss how it is important to help out others and give back. I offer some advice about how to keep your priorities straight while you are learning and give some examples of some of the bad information that is out there. Finally, I stress the importance of taking care of yourself, eating right, and exercising. Enjoy friends.
