It’s true — if I didn’t take that one class on how to code in C++ my first year in College, I wouldn’t have been able to pretty much do anything on this website. I wouldn’t have been able to teach myself how to program, and read other computer languages. Yes I was taught the basics, and I feel as though I’m still on the basic level, TheNext2Shine would have died in it’s first few months due to lack of funding and structure.
I don’t remember the first program I ever made. I don’t remember how to even code in C++ anymore.. regardless, it was definitely one of the most beneficial courses I ever took.
