Im still new at this programming thing and I’m working my way through the fcc curriculum. When I go through the tutorials I find that I understand them quite well but when I start a project my mind has trouble applying what I’ve learned in the tutorials. Mostly because it seems that I forget some of the things I learned. That has led me to search out other sites to supplement my knowledge and burn the previous learned stuff into my mind. Now i find myself tutorial hopping hoping that it’ll sink in. I’ve recently read that the best way to really learn is to build projects as tutorials just guide you on what to do and its not the same as you having to figure it out on your own. Just curious as to others thoughts on this. Is it best just to jump in and learn by building?
