Chances are, you are more afraid of code than it is of you.

Many people have the desire to learn, but are offered confusing advice on how to start.
The posts here show some of the many things programming can do, how it can impact your real life, and how accessible it is once you have the right help.

Too many sites leave newcomers in the lurch after a ‘paint-by-numbers’ introduction.
