Was it Difficult Learning How to Code?


Chelsea: Cool. So would you say was it difficult learning code, going through the process? Tucker: Yeah. Coding is hard. And I say that in a good way. If it was easy, everyone would do it. It’s not easy, it’s challenging, it’s still challenging to this day. And it’s just a learning process always. And you have to want to be challenged and you have to want to overcome those challenges and going to be a problem solver. But the biggest thing is if you put in the work and you get through those hard times and those challenges, like the reward at the end is just huge. And so, yeah, the short answer – yes, it is. It is difficult, but it’s awesome. Chelsea: And the reward, it keeps coming, right? Tucker: Yeah. Chelsea: Like, that you’re continuing to learn, you’re getting into new things, like you just keep … you get to keep continuing to grow. Tucker: Yeah, I mean, there’s a lot of professions out there where you just kind of hit the ceiling, right? Like, you’ve learned what you’ve learned and you’re doing this for the rest of your life, and that’s it, right? I feel like there’s never going to be a day as a software engineer that I don’t learn something. And it’s actually crazy, at my current position at Q Centrix, my lead told me that, she said, “Write down what you learn every day?” And I’ve taken that as something I really do, and I’d never … at the end of the day I never find myself trying to figure out what I learned. Usually, it’s multiple things, right? Which I love, I love continuously learning and developing as a software engineer, like you’re constantly evolving. And I don’t know, it’s just so rewarding, just personally. Just to see where I was a couple months ago to now, it just blows my mind.
