OMG Stop bullying!

They wouldn't be journalists in the first place if they could even learn how to code.

Hell, why pretend like we don't already have entire hordes of SJW scum infesting more and more code projects?

The LAST thing we need is more of that!

That could be the key incentive : tell them there are projects out there with hateful comments and naming conventions!... (not to mention projects deeply rooted in meritocratic principles -- which, as we all know by now, is a white supremacist racist toxically masculine patriarchal very bad thing) and point them towards projects that are already SJW fucked up anyway (Linux kernel and such)

None of them write any usable code tho

Imagine them coding in the same way as they 'practiced' journalism. Good luck.

Or you can go to ND and freeze your nuts off and make High $20's / Low $30's on a Workover Rig (Or "pulling unit" if your backwards and from Texas :) )

You can start as a roustabout and make $18/hr working 6 12 hour shifts a week.

$6,048 a month, assuming standard overtime rates. Not a bad haul if your just lookin' make some cash. Perfect for a single man with no children, or a guy down on his luck with too many children.

Take-home would be something closer to $4,000 after taxes though. Even less if overtime laws don't apply.

This is why I never understand why rednecks are anti-abortion.

To be honest, everyone should learn to code, at least a little. It has a lot to do with math, but most importantly it has even more to do with logic and reasoning. If those skills can be transferred into everyone's daily life, it would benefit society.

I disagree that it has a lot to do with math. If you know basic algebra, you can code. You would need a deeper knowledge of mathematics if you're doing data analysis or implementing algorithms yourself, but for the most common jobs out there, you just need basic math skills.

I personally did not start coding until much later in life because I had the misconception that I had to be a math wiz to code. You don't need to be a math wiz, you just have to be persistent. There's a ton of really specialized knowledge in the field and unfortunately most coders are too self-centered and autistic to write tutorials with this in mind, so you'll find even basic tutorials littered with jargon, practically unreadable for a beginner. You just have to power through it.

You're right. Just don't be scared of math. Depending on what you are doing, someone else has probably already solved the problem of figuring out an expression that will do what you need.

Also, I guess it depends on what area of programming you want to go into, as gaming and anything to do with physics might require a bit of unique math related problem solving skills, where as building a word processing application might have very little unique math.

I suck at math and have no desire to learn to code at all.

That is the issue not everybody has the brainpower for this. Different people are wired differently.

If one has the capability to learn, one has the capability to learn a little bit about logic and reasoning. The inability to learn is a completely different issue.

Computer literacy, maybe... That might even involve some basic coding of some sort, or not.

Please stop this meme. There are three things that run the world, business, law, and code.

Do not put these people at the center of code. And because they won't be able to really code they will be doing the soft jobs of coding, aka, being in charge.
