6 Reasons To Learn Programming If You Are Not A Programmer

The Crazy Programmer

1. It’s Freedom of Creativity Many people think you need A’s in math to program. That’s a misconception. Programming is more about logic and creativity. For example, you and your friends jokingly come up with an excellent smartphone game. You can wait for some company over the ocean to release it or make it yourself.

I clicked through and it told me it had removed the text message two-factor that I didn’t have, and would I like to set up something using a one-time code or hardware dongle?

TechCrunch

Startups are essentially machines that build MVPs (minimum viable products) that help answer questions and gradually de-risk the value proposition of the company. The key is that every MVP a company builds needs to be laser focused on answering a very particular question. If it does anything more than that, it’s time and effort wasted. In my experience, a lot of startups worry about scaling way too early, wasting resources on something that may never be needed.
