I like freeCodeCamp, it’s fantastic project with good comunity, I’ve never seen something like this before.
When I am coding some projects on freeCodeCamp
, I am just saying in my head “I am just working on projects, which successfully finished hundreds of people before me… and most of them better than me”, and usually it’s fun only when I finish the project…
I have just one motivation: 1) Learn something new in programming 2) Get a freeCodeCamp certification
When I am working on my own projects, which nobody did before me, on my own ideas, not ideas of someone else
I just feel like “Oh, I am giving a real value to the world… I am working on something what nobody did before me… oh yeah it’s so amazing”.
I have more motivations: 1) Learn how to code. 2) Realize some of my ideas. 3) Do something first 4) Solve some problem that I or someone else hate (yes, on freeCodeCamp projects I also solve the problems that someone hate, but these problems solved hundreds of people before me, nothing will change in the world if I’ll finish that project…)
I enjoy the process, and it’s fun 80 % of the process, not just when I finish the project, like on freeCodeCamp.
So what to do?
Someone who feels like me?
Should I stop with freeCodeCamp and start learn on myself, and do my own projects, or stay on freeCodeCamp?
What are some + and - ?
