I feel like a lot of the exercises I’ve done thus far are just copying what is shown as an example, coding it myself once, and getting my green checkmark. They seem sort of shallow- like sure I can follow the steps you’re showing me but why am I doing this? What is its application?
My most effective learning so far has been in actually building things. Like I REALLY learned a lot about bootstrap and CSS by building my portfolio. It was great.
I’m sure JS will be vital to my success in the algorithm scripting portions of the course but I’m thinking maybe I should be using other learning resources as well.
Thanks for your thoughts guys.
