Comment A few paths (Score 2) 312

I think there are three paths to follow.
Question - where do you want to end up?

1) Find a project you are interested in such as an open source project, game, tool, etc. Figure out how you can contribute be in HTML, web pages, Javascript, database work such as MySQL, PHP etc. Learn whatever tool(s) they are using and figure out how to contribute. The key is to be interested in the project, not neccesarely the tool or language.

2) Pick a language and go through some tutorials. There are tons of stuff on almost every language. Pick one that interests you but stick to something mainstream. This is a good reference to Python for example: I recommend something that is cross platform and machine independent.

3) Get an Arduino or Raspberry PI and build something. Flash the lights, read the temp, make the propeller spin, etc.

In any of the above - Have fun and don't make it a chore!

A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm. A robot must obey the orders given it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law. A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Laws.

Irony is that the progressive douchelords in the press were all expecting Trump supporters to be violent when they lost, instead it was the precious snowflakes being paid off by Soros when Trump won by the rules. Shrillery has never played by the rules and now it is apparent that they are feeding money through Stien to try and steal it. Where is Al Franken? If the electoral college does not select Trump, there will not be riots, there will be anarchy. Can you snowflakes handle the heat? Are you all prepped up in Seattle, San Francisco, New York, and Boston? Got your food and ammo? An extra battery for the iPhone is not a weapon. Think the military and police will be on your side or the other side? Who do you think is better prepared for chaos just based on geography and population density - red or blue? Bring it Alinskyites, the book does not talk about real opposition, only propaganda! It will not be a knife fight.
