Thank you for this — and you make a great point about being able to program in any language. Programming isn’t just about the syntax of a language. Anyone can learn the syntax of an unfamiliar language (or Google it in a pinch). But not anyone can understand why a piece of code needs revision, or why an error keeps popping up, or why their code isn’t efficient, or why something in the code is overriding something else.
