Hey guys, a small introduction, I am a newbie that has decided to learn code and has been learning for 2-3 weeks now and needs some advice if possible. ))
After looking online and seeing many positive reviews and stories on this forum about freecodecamp, I decided to give it a try. However, I am a little confused regarding the way to learn coding. Firstly from my newb observation, as I went through the tutorials of freecodecamp I realised that freecodecamp teaches people how to “copy” code and not teach the core principles. (Maybe thats what a CS degree does?) So I am really confused on how a newb like me should learn how to code?
That being said, people on that forum said they completed the certificates on there and got a job…which kind of confuses me, do companies just want Junior Web Developers to know how to “copy” code and not the core principles? This is really hard to explain, I am probably explaining what I mean really wrong, but just need some opinions on this.
Any advice is greatly appreciated.
