The world we live in today is touched by technology like never before. And the trend does not seem to decelerate any time soon. Much of technology has to do with machines powered by codes and algorithms.
Literacy and skill in programming is, therefore, a pursuit that can prevent (or delay) one from becoming obsolete in this ongoing automation. Think of robots, automated factories, self-driving trucks and autonomous drone delivery.
There are way too many online places, courses, platforms and frameworks for absolute beginners to learn programming; and most of them are free.
In this post I focus on my experience with one of them, Sololearn.
