Learn to code!

Welp, I’ve decided to bite the bullet and finally go and spend a significant amount of my time learning to code. Certainly I’m not in unknown territory, heck, I even took up Haskell a couple of times. But I’m fundamentally a system administrator, not a programmer, which for all intents and purposes isn’t the same – I’m very used to setting up and maintaining systems, networking, modifying portions of code when I need software to do something specific differently. And I am still very much in my comfort zone when I write shell scripts, my favorite is zsh (who cares about POSIX-compatibility these days anyway?). But actually learning how to code? With the exception of Haskell which I sadly decided to abort for a host of reasons, I haven’t ever really given that a try. Until now.
