I do not have a background in Computer Science but I am hoping to be MSc Computer course (conversion) or Junior role ready in the next few months.
I’ve been watching online tutorials on Youtube and working on FCC projects for a little while now. I definitely give the challenges my 100%. I am loving the experience as I find myself lost in coding for hours until I ‘have to’ eat/sleep/work. I know I want to be a Full stack developer but I am worried that I rely too much on the ‘Get a Hint’ tab of FCC challeneges. Despite sifting through all the resources provided, I keep making mistakes or not even getting close to the solution I am supposed to. After exhausting all the resources I have, I work through the hints and then the final solution and I’m like ’ HOW THE F**** DID I NOT GET THAT!!!’ I understand the solution explanation but I am worried I am not getting to the solution on my own.
Anyone else been here? Does it get better or is it detrimental to getting a SD job? Any advice (except quit now!) would be gratefully recieved. Thanks guys!
