My girlfriend, Michelle, is spending this summer learning to code with the intention of creating a startup. She finished her last exam of the year on Thursday (analytical chemistry) and has already started pursuing programming.
This is definitely my new favorite game. My high score is
87 131 202.
For this one, I had to take on the dreaded product manager role; it was incredibly frustrating not being allowed to write or talk about code, and having to instead provide high-level constructive feedback and wait while Google answered questions to which I knew the answer.
That’s all part of the learning process, though, and I myself learned a valuable lessons: not being able to do real work invokes an overwhelming feeling of helplessness and uselessness all at once, and is not something I would wish upon my greatest enemy. But the old adage that if you want something done right, you have to do it yourself is nowhere near as accurate as I had previously believed.
