Learning to program is about self-driven exploration. Universities help guide you, coding boot camps provide a rigorous environment to work in, and online coding courses provide content for you to study. But none of this will turn you into a great programmer unless you have the drive to improve and the curiosity to explore.
The Recurse Center is a place where people can come to become better programmers. Nick Bergson-Shilcock is a founder of The Recurse Center and he joins the show to discuss how it works and why he started it.
This episode is a continuation of our exploration of coding boot camps, online courses, and universities, which are the pillars of programming education. The Recurse Center presents another unique model for improving as a programmer.
