If you coded for 10 years, and then stopped because you had to focus on the growth and mentoring of others and didn’t have the opportunity to sit down in front of a keyboard and punch out brackets and semi-colons in your free time are you no longer considered a coder?
What if you simply became bored with what you were building and tried your hand at other pursuits for a period of time, are you no longer considered a coder?
What if you never coded and just today read Chapter 1 of how to do Python are not a coder?
Take 30 minutes, open Notepad, do something silly in it (i.e., “Hello AGAIN World”) – and welcome back to coding.
No matter what we do, coding will never leave it (despite all of us wishing that some of our most infamous bugs would).
