@that-pat Thank you for reaching out to me. First, above all else, let me express my gratitude that you have done so. Next let me summarize my difficulty in Just One sentence: “I am a newbie.”
You have asked pointed questions. I will answer those below. Before that I need to disclose to you a thumbnail of what of I am embarking upon, and where I am coming from. I am not a college student. I am a retired person. (Joke: I don’t have money all I have is time). I know I am launching an extremely ambitious project. I do have the advantage of experience. None of my experience is in the field of coding. There is only one skill that I bring forward from my years of experience which I wish to apply to this project is - I KNOW HOW TO THINK. That’s all I know.
I am starting a Repository to Learn and to Teach coding for Artificial Intelligence. I have already figured out that I DID NOT bite more than I can chew. I know that and I was not scared to launch the Repository called IDKanythingApp. Reads “I Don’t Know Anything App.” My goal is to prepare a team of coders who will be able to write code for AI applications. The reason I do not feel daunted is my deadline is Janurary 1, 2022. That being said, I am intensely goal directed and do pretty average to good with my Time Management. I know I will succeed, but I also know I will definitely not succeed without help.
What was I able to see and find: I found the Git Learning Lab. I was able to create my new repository. At this time my greatest challenge is writing the text in the ReadME.md. I know the Bots can teach me. That does not suit my learning style. I need resources where I can do rapid reading and figure out for myself the theory and technique for doing what I need to do. My learning style aside, I am willing to entertain some “learning curve.” so I don’t mind working with the Bots. I do not have a budget to buy paper format books.
Could I go to the repository and its code tab: Yes I could go to the repository and the code tab. What I don’t know at this time is, in what code to speak? Do I need HTML (I can code some) or is it some other language or plain English? Here is a snapshot of what code I have in my first document.
