Google has several hundred hits for “learning curb”. E.g.: “Once you are over the learning curb, the benefits of having clean lean code are enormous.”
I found about 400 ghits for “learning kerb”. It’s clear that many of the writers are using the phrase as a limitation on learning, such as “It was a real learning kerb”.
