The Landscape of Code

I have a confession, I find code like magic. You can enter text into a document and make pictures appear on your screen! I love it. My one regret is that I didn’t do computer science or learn to code. I can read/almost write HTML, CSS (who can’t) and mild levels of PHP but that is my limitation. I want to be able to code so much.

I am in awe of hardcore code geeks who can make things happen and knock up a script in PHP without even thinking about it. And, don’t get me started on Excel Vlookups.

As someone who grew up before mobile phones, it’s a miracle that I am as tech coherent as I am.
