Social media and the end of discourse
Don't let anyone tell you that searching for answers online in a technical field is wrong or somehow a sign of weakness. It just means you're not sure how to do something and are asking questions from the internet.
Weakness is part of programming. Not understanding is part of programming. Nobody understands all of this shit without someone helping them. It's just that some folks forget who helped them.
