Today I’m doing a session at a private university for java developers. I’m very excited about this! The students are on their first year, and many are like I was a year ago, completely new to the world of programming. I’ve been told some of them are a bit dishearten, as we all get from time to time, and some feel like they don’t understand anything and things feels miserable and hopeless. I sure hope I can give some energy and inspiration, and I am looking forward to learn things from them and I am very thankful they are having me. Before I go there today, I thought it would be great to ask the wonderful community out there, what one piece of advice would you give newcomers?
Write your position, and if you don’t mind your name being public, your name as well.
Here is my number one advice:
