Hello and welcome to Kodeit.org.
If you do some research on the wording “coding”, you get some interesting results: (from Wikipedia)
“Coding may refer to:
- Channel coding in coding theory
- Line coding
- Computer programming, the process of designing, writing, testing, debugging / troubleshooting, and maintaining the source code of computer programs
- The process of Statistical classification of information
- Coding (social sciences), refers to an analytical process in which data, in both quantitative form (such as questionnaires results) or qualitative (such as interview transcripts) are categorized to facilitate analysis
- Coding (therapy), a controversial therapy used to treat addictions
- Legal coding, the process of creating summary or keyword data from a document. It is widely used in the legal profession to create a fast-search index or database of documents for use in litigation
- A coding strand of DNA is translated into a protein product
- Present progressive tense for Code Blue, which is a patient in Cardiac Arrest or Respiratory Arrest”
In this case, it refers to the process of writing computer code.
Having been in the coding business for the last 15 years, I’ve always wanted to run my blog about all the neat things that you come across when coding. Kodeit came along so here we are.
My plan is to write about my own personal trials and tribulations as a coder/programmer, and also share in the small successes that come with the job. I been coding both independently and at the corporate level so I’ve had the opportunity to experience quite a bit about the business.
The overall perception in society seems to be that coders/programmers are “computer geeks” and with that label comes all the weird behaviors and expectations along with it. In my case, nothing could be farther from the truth. I grew up in the mountains of NC so I’m darn close to being a hillbilly even though I’ve got an undergrad in Computer Sciences from UNC and I’m working on my MBA there as well.
