Recently I completed Stephen Grider’s Udemy course Electron for Desktop Apps: The Complete Developer’s Guide. My purpose for taking this course was to better understand Electron to determine if it would be a solid framework to build some fun tool. This blog is a short summary of my thoughts and how the course turned out.
In the technology industry, coding is a significant skill to have. Simply because technology runs on code and if you understand what is happening at the most basic level, you can more fully utilize your tools. And if you really think about it, every piece of software, really everything on your computer is a piece of code. In the security world, learning to code is of the utmost importance in my mind because attackers leverage coding errors for attacks and we must monitor behaviors a low level to successfully detect the adversary. All these can better be understood with solid programming skills.
