Why Novice Programmers Can Be Confused

Programming is not easy. It is made particularly difficult by legitimate statements such as these from a Xamarin.Forms project:

 public Size Size = new Size(276, 180);

This can be followed by

               var popup = new SwipePopUp
                   CheckBoxText = CheckBoxText,
                   GotItText = GotItText,
                   CentralText = CentralText,
                   Size = Size

If the first line doesn’t kill you then the last ones will.
