Do you feel like writing code is still hard for you?

In this very amusing blog post (you must read it to the end!), by student Michelle Bu, you’ll find out how hard her first coding experience was for her:

I’ve realized that with each piece of code I’ve written since my triangles, I’ve only gotten better at “Googling it,” debugging, and being generally competent about miscellaneous programming topics–and it’s all because I saw each and every silly project through. — Michelle Bu

So 21 months ago, she didn’t even know how to write a loop. Now she’s a Ph.D. student in computer science.

Here is her first attempt (21 months ago), and here is her new, responsive, fabulous version.
