What Does It Take to be a Coder?

A Basic List of Skills Start As:

  • Spelling
  • Typing 
  • Cause and effect connections
  • Perseverance 
  • A Reason to Code! 

However one important skill is Error Analysis

Error analysis is a process of trying to solve a problem by determining why it exists.

Have a discussion to illustrate the example using a simple scenario:

  • If a dog is barking, what are the possible reasons that it could be barking? 
    • What might you try to get it to stop? 

Error analysis process: 

  • What is the proof there is a problem ( or what is happening)?
  • What are the symptoms?
  • What could be the cause? 
  • What can I try? 
  • Who can I get to help me if I can’t figure it out?
