I may have been due to having aixelsyd (that's dyslexia, to a dyslexic) or maybe what we were being taugh had no connection to my current situation and thus I couldn't relate to it. It was, what it was.
Then back in the early 90's I purchased a copy of Visual Basis and I learned the basics of it in about a week. YES, I found that I actually liked writing code and could do it well.
Next I am going to expand my skill set with AngularJS - a web framework; NoSQL - which is another database type of which I have to select a specific implementation; and then Electron - a way to create desktop application using Node JS technologies that will run on almost any desktop.
WHY - hey, I got ideas for a few applications and this seems a good way to get two things done at once!
