ALL THE TIME I judge myself on my ability, or lack-thereof, with coding. I am not a CS major, and never have been. I can hack away at PHP and if you give me long enough I might be able to tell you what some basic Python does… but seeing these posts makes me feel validated for the amount of time I spend on StackOverflow or in the darkest recesses of random bulletin boards looking for an answer.
