This session gave practical steps to go from resisting programming to doing it. Here are the key Lounge47 takeaways: 1. Coding is not all that difficult; one needs to be curious and experimental. 2. There are many entrepreneurs who started out with no coding skills but ended up building great products. 3. Demand for programmers outstrips supply. Learning to code is a great way to control your destiny while controlling your burn. 4. Your Startup idea is great training ground. Combine your own research with speaking to peers and mentors to refine your path. 5. Don’t aim to build the perfect product but just enough to communicate your Startup idea, build a team and get investors interested. 6. “Learn to get things done” rather than “Learning for the heck of it”. Don’t get attached to one technology. Starting up has never been easier or cheaper. Computing power, free software, free storage and free analytics – all of these can be leveraged to power your dreams.
