Today’s topic is Create.
In the Creation story, G-d creates the world simply through words: “G-d said, ‘Let there be light!’” Coding is also creation through words, although they aren’t always recognizable in a language we might speak. Coding languages allow us to tell computers to do a series of tasks, and depending on the computer, can cause a page to print, or even a production process to begin. Coding can also be a fickle thing, because your language has to be precise in order to create the exact chain you want. If you mistype or leave out even the slightest step, you will end up with an entirely different outcome.
With this mind to precision, what are you looking to create this year? What steps do you need to take to have it take shape?
