I have been coding useful things for myself for 15 years and I have little to no idea how any of the preceding work. Programming as a community has gotten more and more abstract, leaving me behind. When discussing problems I wish to solve with coding at other coders, I usually get back some answer that makes zero sense and is abstract or predicated on knowledge they learned foundationally, when all I learned was to start writing code and making results happen.
At this point, I would just learn all the things but I'm off-put by the general manosphere vibe and jargon saturation. It doesn't feel like a space I'm wanted in because my intelligence and usefulness is called into question regarding these things. It's not a welcoming way to be—assuming everyone had your journey.
