Two thoughts for you if you go for a PhD

Got a question asking my take on getting a PhD. Well, that's not my field, but here's my take -

I don't have much of a background in academia, but I have some friends who do and some general thoughts. Actually, I got two thoughts for you if you go on to go for a PhD.

1. Study exactly what requirements are needed, and study the background of people who have gotten a PhD successfully and have written about it.

A lot of people try to reinvent the wheel or otherwise don't have a plan, thus leading to the tragedy and horror you talk about. This is just generally good advice anyways - understand the rules/parameters going in, and understand and model someone who has done it successfully.

2. Go for it as fast as possible. Prioritize quantity over quality in the beginning.

Learn to Code

Let's talk about programming. Everyone says you need it these days. Even I do. But, how should you learn to code? Codecademy, KhanAcademy, or other pseudo-learning techniques? Maybe a book, like Learn Code The Hard Way. What language should you learn, and what software should you code in? The questions are endless!

I'm here to give you a solution for you (and myself). Here's an 8-step guide for learning to code.

Everyone knows that goals are pointless if they're not specific. If you don't define your success, you're just flailing around randomly. Therefore, have something you want to build.

Think of coding like woodworking. You want to learn how to manipulate wood to make beautiful objects. Would you start hacking away randomly? No. Then why would you do that with code?

Have a specific goal. For me, I'd like to evolve from Wordpress and design my own website (including a blog).
