What would be the non ass backwards way to learn code then?

if that was a question answerable in the form of a tumblr ask/response you’d be in luck

but it’s not that easy

uhh

start from the low-level hardware and software interfaces and move your way up to kernels and operating systems and user space

don’t tolerate any “black boxes” or major concepts you don’t understand properly and get by interacting with it only peripherally (?)

i’m not making a lot of sense tonight
