He says that lawers, philosophy degrees and musicians are logical and detail oriented professionals. Those attributes help them to learn to code and otherwise are skills the newies needs to develop.

Chris Lee is running Launch School and he also share more interesting opinons, I agree with him for instance:
- Mastery, rather than time spent, should be the goal
- Don’t start by learning the frameworks. Learn from fundamentals and take your time.
- Target the job you want, and then build something that shows what you’re capable of with that job in mind.
