New blog post about Europe Code Week, a project I started with other Neelie Kroes’ Young Advisors to promote coding all over Europe. Read to find out why I think coding is becoming an essential skill of the future and more. And help us spread the word about #codeEU!
At first — and to some extent still — my brain hurt after studying Python for a few hours. Just as my muscles are sore after a good workout, my brain was physically tired from training it to think in a way it wasn’t accustomed.

(Okay, so it was the English equivalent of me saying the ABCs but still!)
But first, here are a few of the beautiful & sometimes painful lessons I learned about programming. In short: programming teaches you to experiment, fail, ask questions, be creative and collaborate.
