It really sucks to be in college to learn programming and computer science with no experience. Everyone else seems to have at last some experience and picks up on solving coding problems. I can make simple things with code, but I just can’t solve any of the problems that are on the tests or homework. It’s just depressing that I may want to do this one day, but is not good enough to do. No matter what I do, I’m just stuck with my dumb logic and imperfect solutions that lead me nowhere. Will I ever become a programmer? Am I just inherently illiterate in coding?
What I’m Going To Do
I’m purposefully failing my computer science class in order to retake the class again for a higher grade, since there is a GPA requirement (3.3 B+ average) at my college for the CS program. I hope that in the mean time, I’ll learn more about coding logic. I feel like it’s not something you pick up easily, but more like an inherent thing. This really discourages me from pursuing CS.
Does it really get any better? Will I get better?
