I have been doing loads for JS lessons with treehouse but it just does not make sense to me.
Most challenges I don’t have a clue how to solve and when I watch the solution I knew I would not have been able to solve it and even know how to begin to start the challenge.
What do I do?
It is free and Gordon does an awesome job explaining the stuff.
One caveat: Their coding interface is hokey with some quizzes, so if you think your answer was right but it’s not being accepted, check their forum. Don’t assume it’s you.
If your problem solving skills need improving, you might want to study logic. You could also post an exercise or two along with how you would have solved it so we can see where your reasoning might be off.
Check out this guy, he also has a facebook group.
oops: Looks like @Dragomara posted the same link too! So count that as 2 votes for W&C.
maybe check code avengers.
it may look silly. but it was good to me.
If you are new to programming altogether, perhaps you like to read and then perform tasks?
My suggestion as I am working through it in conjunction with everything else:
I did buy a copy, but the author Marijn Haverbeke just puts it out there for free in your web browser.
After that there are some “You don’t know JS” books.
Also some JS Ninja books.
Well lots of books to supplement what you are doing.
This might be the “ground up” approach you are looking for.
Keep at it, if it was effortless, you wouldn’t get the enjoyment from it that you will eventually realize.
I will look at all the links and see if they can help me in the future.
