I had the chance to appear on The Smart Home Show with host Michael Wolf. I am a frequent listener on his show, and he interviewed me about my smart home tech interests. The link to the show can be found here, or you can listen below.
I just finished eating dinner while watching one of the too many reality TV shows that I have recorded on my DVR. I really want to move over to my favorite seat in the house and catch a quick snooze while another reality TV show plays in the background, but I can't. Instead I am sitting at the table , with my laptop out , getting ready to continue my coding journey. I have made a commitment to myself to learn how to code.
What is Coding?
This video that features Microsoft founder Bill Gates, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and others will give you a good idea of what coding is.
Coding is basically a computer language that allows you to communicate with the computer. It allows you to give the computer instructions in a way that it understands and make it do stuff. That is my goal. I want to learn a coding language that will allow me to make computers do stuff. What do I want to ultimately do with this knowledge? The true answer is that I don't know. I will hopefully figure that out along the way. I will try to post about any significant milestones or accomplishments that I reach or achieve.
The coding language that I chose to learn is called Objective-C. I chose Objective-C because from everything that I have read, it is a good language for beginners to learn because it is somewhat simplified but powerful. You can learn more about Objective-C here.
I grew up as a lanky kid born in Chicago, and growing up in Meridian, Mississippi. I have the benefit of both Midwestern and Southern roots, and a minority perspective. Those culturally rich perspectives have become the backdrop for me and my identifying with the common person through political and social commentary.
Before and after college, I served my country in the Army for ten years. My military career deepened my resolve to stay connected to my country and community through civic involvement. Through writing, I hope to touch those around me and leave my footprint on the world.
