    I'd been studying economics for 5 years. I've been working on specialty since 2016. Last week I decided to try coding just for fun and I suddenly understand that I like it. And I been coding every day for a week since that time. I want to learn it perfectly and try to become a programmer. But I'm scared a little bit. What if I fail, what if it's too late for me to start coding. What do you think?

    It's never too late to start coding and everyone fails - that's part of it. No master programmer will be able to create a program with no errors, but the point of programming is with these errors comes learning. I'm not quite sure what you mean by failing, in what way? It sounds like its just a hobby so you can't exactly 'fail' it, in fact its hard to fail programming at all.

    TBH, I enjoy 'failing' in coding. It gives you a problem that you have to try and figure out and then fix yourself!
How are you feeling in the run-up to Results Day 2018?
