The Art of Coding
Coders are perceived to be ‘left brained’ thinkers – analytical, methodical and rational. Now, if your values and skills align with those of the conventional coder, congratulations – you’re on your way to becoming a fantastic coder. However, creatives like myself, who can’t shake their curiosity towards coding, may be held back due to the societal construct of left vs right brained thinking. Which raises the question – is coding strictly analytical, and can our cognitive skills be compartmentalised into a singular ‘side’ of the brain?
