What will you say to someone that has been learning how to code for 5 years but yet still struggling with it?

I’ve been coding for 25 years and still struggle with it.

But…

If you are struggling with the language you have a serious problem. If you are struggling how to use the language in a certain way - it’s not as serious.

if you are struggling to solve problems - that is more serious and maybe programming is not for you.

iI always say to young programmers - what matters is that you can solve a program. Some problems don’t need programming to solve and you should recognize that too.
