No issues here, just communicating my journey so far and seeing if anyone else had a similar experience.
I started very well, getting a real kick out of the early modules, especially when I was able to remember the syntax for increasing and decreasing the rockets fuel and thrust. Early wins, love it! Put the War Card game on my device and felt quite proud. I designed a very basic background in Adobe XD and using arrays and some of the skills I learnt in early modules, i created a very basic four word passphrase generator which work great. Again, built on my device, felt proud and showed most people. I used cheeky words for the fun factor. It was about using the skills to make my own tool and enforce the learning so far… tick
Continued with the flip card game. The difficulty level increased, that’s ok, I love a challenge. So, hence ‘DAY 60 OF 28’. I have taken my time. Gone back several times to ensure I didn’t move on until I had at least a reasonable idea of what I was learning. 2 modules to go, have loved it but have also felt quite overwhelmed at times. I guess the ‘hump’ that Chris discussed has come to mind, although I would never give up. I am absolutely committed and excited. I have signed up to CWC+, so there is the proof of commitment. So, did anyone else feel like this? Any tips? Easiest way to explain it is a overwhelming feeling of being a little lost in the code. Wondering how I would structure my own sudo code to cover all aspects of required functionality etc. I played the Protocols module several times. Mapped it our on paper until I got it. I look at the code and can point out whats happening for most parts, but some parts, i get lost and tie myself in knots. Anyway, just a little feedback re my very early journey. Still loving it and extremely happy with my choice to take up development as a hobby. I am Head of IT at my organisation, but have never coded before.
All the best to everyone.
