CodeChat 044 - With Mark Michaelis Asking Why Beginning Development Can Still Be So Hard

This week on CodeChat I'm talking with Microsoft MVP and Regional Director Mark Michaelis about a phenomenon that we both observe in the software development world.

I'm talking about how, over the years, our capabilities, opportunities, and options for software development have expanded, but it hasn't necessarily resulted in software development becoming any easier for students and beginners.

Now we have a myriad of platforms, languages, runtimes, and starting points that all claim to be the easiest and best way to go. Who is a newcomer supposed to believe and where are they supposed to start.

On the contrary, the array of options often overwhelm and bewilder the beginner and may intimidate them from even getting started at all.
