Critical thinking is the ability to evaluate, analyse and refine a process logically so that it can be successfully implemented with minimal unanticipated errors. The ability to think critically when coding is vital to writing a successful program. The ability to identify potential problems before they occur and put measures in place to eliminate those problem is essential.
Coding is creativity. Coding programs and apps inspire imagination, design, art, self-expression and overall creativity.
Coding is collaborative by nature, with teams of coders working on smaller aspects of a larger project to make it a reality. Even if you happen to be working on a small one-person project there are always issues encountered that require consultation with a peer, a mentor, or the tech community. In coding, no person is an island.
Collaboration requires communication, verbal and written. You learn to express your thoughts, questions and opinions clearly, simply and unambiguously.
