I joined The Coli specifically because of the misinformation about programming that was floating around TLR by people on the outside looking in. It was good when this subforum was created because it showed who was a talker and who was a doer (with a couple exceptions). I try to keep it as real as possible and give as much detail as I can without letting go of personal info so people can understand that struggles of getting into the industry. How to handle money on a basic level so that you aren't broke on a good salary. I get it wrong
. I should have invested what I spent on my car. But it was also a valuable exercise in handling a loan and paying it down as soon as possible. If somebody can learn from me then it was all worth it.
Thank you and all who seek to help others. Whether it be a kid in west virginia, india, africa, or caribbean. The internet is the first time in world history that every person with access has the ability to learn or be successful.
The misinformation is literally evil. Whether that be covid, politics, or coding. If not for the knowledge presented by you and others, I would have thought coding would be something I could not even try. I am more interested in stocks and crypto. In fact bought dogecoin from reading about it here.
The main point I want to present is that, it might not be obvious how impactful you and others might be.
For example one person says coding/banking/stocks is not for black people or the poor. Another like yourself might give pointers on how best to maneuver in that world.
That could be the diffefence between a person believing hustling on the street, or minimum wage, is better than going back to school or starting a business.
We can be of assistance to our family/friends, when though that be done for thousands, the effect is far greater.
Blessed love to you and all.
