Justin Bieber Should Learn How to Code

Justin Bieber: Bad-Ass Coder?

Apparently, the Biebs was arrested this morning in Miami for drag racing and driving under the influence. If you’ve paid even a little attention, you know this has been coming for awhile now.

I don’t really hate on the kid too much because I understand he’s a kid with a lot of money and a lot of fame… and I wonder what kind of decisions I’d have made at that age with that money and that fame.

Probably not great ones.

But, it does make me think dude should learn how to code!

Why?

Here’s a few reasons why:

  1. Coding teaches you to be disciplined. You can’t be a good coder and be undisciplined. If you are, your code will come back to haunt you with bugs and bad design structure that make it a nightmare to fix and/or upgrade.
  2. Coding teaches you to be organized. Unorganized code is hell. It’s difficult to read, difficult to bugfix, and nearly impossible to scale. After you’ve been burned a few times, you learn to keep your code clean and organized.
  3. Coding teaches you to be focused. Coding requires long periods of focus and deep concentration… usually tested by frustration. To be a good coder, you have to learn how to control your emotions and stay focused on the task-at-hand.

Yeah, I’m bias… but I think coding (over time) makes you a better thinker and helps you to make better decisions. For me personally, the better I’ve got at coding… the better other areas of my life have become.

So Biebs… if you’re listening… crack open the IDE dude! And, you’re welcome! 🙂

I recommend John every chance I get. If every person I worked with were as committed to excellence, punctuality, value, and unquestionable integrity… the world would be a better place. Highest recommendation.

John is amazing at building membership sites. He converted one of my sites over from it’s existing (hardly working) platform over to the clean and simple to use WishList membership platform. I highly recommend using John and WishList for any of your membership site needs.

Not only is John a very talented programmer and developer, he is also an excellent communicator. He has a talent for taking complex subjects and communicating them in terms that anyone can understand. This is a rare combination.
