Coding Is Convenient

While I don’t write code every day, I find it incredibly convenient.

At work, I can run projects locally to check progress on a project, fix a bug, or better understand engineering challenges. I can customize my tools to my liking like a spreadsheet that calls out to OpenAI. I can explore a problem or product area on my own and learn what’s possible.

Without this knowing how to code, I would need others to do these things for me which increases the activation energy to get things done. Convenience is king.
