“Shut Up, Imposter Syndrome: I Can Too Program”

An oldie but a goodie:

Obviously this is couched in a lot of corporatoid terminology, and isn’t oriented toward academic programmers. But the principles are the same.

Imposter syndrome is a real thing for people trying to learn to program. I have to kick it in the face every single day, and I’ve been programming for many years.

And if you’ve ever thought about learning to programming but haven’t tried, don’t let fear of failure keep you from trying. It’s fun if you let it be.
