Seven hundred and sixty six notifications… that I’m not checking. Dang.
My heart’s kinda beating as I type this topic out… but um, hi! It’s been a while, and I know I have a… history… on this app for being kind of a hothead. Sorry about that.
But anyways, I’ve been off for a while and I have a lot to share about coding :) </>
So there are a lot of different ways to code. My favorite has always been game development (making video games and stuff, which is kinda like how Hopscotch works!) and scripting (making smaller programs or apps which do different types of things, which I can’t really explain in one sentence). There’s also software development (making computer apps), mobile development (making phone apps), networking (making and managing servers, websites and the internet), website design (making websites) and many other types of coding. :) What you like the most depends more on what you like doing, and what type of person you are! (But there’s also a lot of different types of art, like music, design, drawing and animation, and I’ve enjoyed these just as much!)
I’m not going to go into each type of coding specifically, because that’s a lot to write…! (Though you can still look them up yourself if you want to ^.^) But overall, you may not even end up pursuing or doing coding later in the end! I started doing game dev and got bored and stressed within a year, and honestly I like making music more - but in the end, that’s okay! (Coding apps with a programming language is a lot harder than coding Hopscotch too - you need to invest a lot of time into makin one, and I’m not a very introverted or one-project-at-a-time person lol! )
Overall, coding outside of Hopscotch is fun, but you’ll never really find another place where you can be constantly creative, backed with a sense of community like this one has. Just remember that making projects should always just for fun, not for some fame you’ll lose someday, and you’ll have a lot of fun making things!
Anyways, if you guys have questions about a certain way of coding, I can help explain how those ways work via reply :)
