One might argue that some people are just bad at coding and that some people are just really good at it. It all comes naturally because of brain chemical composition etc. Just like some people are good at math and others are not. After coming into contact with thousands of coders from all around the world. I disagree ! I am not going to agree with the famous statement made by Albert Einstein “If you judge a fish by it’s ability to climb a tree, it will live it’s whole life believing that it’s stupid.” Yes, it’s true that a fish can never climb a tree, but all humans can code. People are not fish Mr. Einstein or birds. We all belong to the same species but we do all have different mindsets because of different life experiences. Anyone can be a good coder with the right mindset. A terrible coder is just making lame excuses and a good coder is not making any of those excuses. If you are a terrible coder than this article is for you
