This post will walk you through a sample exercise in diving into someone else's
-code. The goal will be to make an arbitrary change to the [Spyder Python IDE],
-a project I have never touched before in my life, and learn *just* enough about
-it to accomplish what I want without getting bogged down. You will learn how to
-approach problems without the rigour taught in formal education, and instead
-with guesswork, experimentation, and insight learned in a professional
-environment. You will see first-hand the joys, sorrows and frustrations trying
-to navigate the project, culminating in a working (if rough) patch adding a
-feature to a large, unfamiliar codebase.

Everyone who learns programming has written a pile of code in a bunch
of different programs: whether it's implementing algorithms for problem sets,
