A few years ago, David Heinemeier Hansson (Ruby on Rails creator) made a confession on Twitter: "I look up code on the internet all the time." David's confession went viral. Within a few hours, dozens of developers began to make similar confessions — all challenging the conventional idea of what most people think it means to be a "real developer." What the trend "Developer Confessions" has taught us is that developers don't know EVERYTHING. (Phew, what a relief!) In this latest episode of the Learn to Code Podcast I break down the 6 Reasons Why You'll Never Learn to Code, and make my own developer confession. (Geez, I have so so so many developer confessions — hope you're ready). 6 Reasons Why You'll Never Learn to Code (article w/ links and examples)  https://learn.onemonth.com/6-reasons-why-youll-never-learn-to-code/ Developer Confessions:  https://twitter.com/i/events/835969005668220930?lang=en Learn to Code with One Month ►https://www.onemonth.com/ STAY TUNED: One Month ► https://www.onemonth.com/ YouTube ► https://youtube.com/c/onemonth Facebook ►https://www.facebook.com/OneMonthEdu/ Podcast ►https://learn.onemonth.com/learn-to-code-podcast/  
SQL is the language of databases, and SQL programmers are in high demand. This week, I want to share how to learn SQL for free — and in your spare time — during quarantine. All you need to get started is access to an MYSQL database, as well as some datasets to play around with. 1. Install a Database — If you want to learn SQL, you’re going to need a SQL database. One of the easiest ways to get a database is to register for a shared hosting account. If you go to hostgator.com and enter the code “onemonthcode,″ you’ll gain access to a MYSQL database for only $0.01 (for the first month). Once you’re in the control panel (or cPanel) click the option to create a new database. Then, click on “PHPMyAdmin” for access to your MYSQL database. Watch this video on setting up shared hosting to learn more.  2. Download a (Free) SQL Dataset — In order to learn SQL, you need a dataset. I've included a free SQL dataset (.sql file) that you can download and upload to your MYSQL database.  Open it in Sublime Text, or any text editor, right now, and you can see! Once you’ve completed the MYSQL installation, go to your MYSQL database and click “Import” to import this .sql file. 3. Discover some great resources! My favorite SQL book is Sams Teach Yourself SQL in 10 Minutes by Ben Forta! They say only 10 minutes a day, but you’ll find all the knowledge you need to write SQL statements in this tiny book. One of my favorite free online resources for SQL code is W3Schools. They have some pretty great SQL quizzes you can try out too! Once you’re ready to ramp things up and become a true SQL expert, consider signing up for my 30-day One Month Learn SQL course. During the course, you’ll learn to read, write, query, and analyze data using 20+ of the most popular SQL commands.

This week I chat with Sahil Lavingia (Gumroad.com Founder) who spent years running a profitable business with millions of adorning customers — only to be told again and again that he was a huge failure. In this episode, Sahil and I discuss the expectations of taking VC money, and the metrics for success (and failure) that startups must answer to. Sahil begins,  "In 2011, I left my job as the second employee at Pinterest — before I vested any of my stock — to work on what I thought would be my life’s work. I thought Gumroad would become a billion-dollar company, with hundreds of employees. It would IPO, and I would work on it until I died. Something like that. Needless to say, that didn’t happen. Now, it may look like I am in an enviable position, running a profitable, growing, low-maintenance software business serving adoring customers. But for years, I considered myself a failure. At my lowest point, I had to lay off 75 percent of my company, including many of my best friends. I had failed. It took me years to realize I was misguided from the outset. I no longer feel shame in the path I took to get to where I am today — but for a long time, I did. This is my journey, from the beginning."  Reflecting on My Failure to Build a Billion-Dollar Company Episode Show Notes and Full Transcript  The Learn to Code Podcast is available on iTunes, Spotify, Stitcher, and YouTube.

In a previous episode of the Learn to Code Podcast I discussed best practices for building a website. Today I want to discuss when NOT to build a website! As well as some cheap, and quick ways to validate your idea before you write a line of code.  I've built a lot of websites that no one has ever visited.😭 I've seen clients spend $10,000 to build a website, and then afterwards never make an update! Without love, websites die. HTML ages like bread, not like wine.  In this episode, I discuss the concept of MVP (minimum viable product) and how successful companies like Dropbox, the Skimm, and Oculus Riff all launched without writing a single line of code.  Episode Show Notes ► https://learn.onemonth.com/non-programming-for-programmers/ STAY TUNED: One Month ► https://www.onemonth.com/ YouTube ► https://youtube.com/c/onemonth Facebook ►https://www.facebook.com/OneMonthEdu/ Podcast ►https://learn.onemonth.com/new-learn-to-code-podcast/
