How long does it take to learn how to code?

There's a common misconception that the path to learning to code is endless. Programming is hard. And like all things worth learning, it will take a lot of time to become really, really good at it. But there is a huge difference between learning enough to become one of the best in the world and learning enough to launch a rewarding career.

It won't take you 10,000 hours to become good enough at programming to land a job as a developer. In fact, focusing on the number of hours you're spending will hold you back from getting where you ultimately want to be.

Watch our video below to learn how to stop worrying about the number of hours you spend coding and instead focus on what really matters.
