General Development "Programming is hard. Don't ever feel bad because you aren't as good at 'just googling it' as the person next to you. Don't ever let hackathon snobs talk you out of creating the next Twitter for cats or Yelp for public washrooms. Even the dumbest ideas (like trying to make animated polygons disappear and reappear) will help you improve as a programmer. Learning to program is largely about learning to learn - and the best way to learn is to do." For some reason, I love this short story.

It is only natural that when you start coding it will give some horrible code. Every developer who looks back on his older work will notice some 'facepalm' constructions in there.
Every skill whatever it is takes time to get to grips with. Nothing to be ashamed of, just remember not to bring it as an example to a job interview for a developers position ;)
