I think I will have a pity party. Anyone want to join me?
I began freeCodeCamp for several reasons:
- Personal fulfillment. (I have always wanted to learn a programming language really well.)
- Moodle contribution. (I run a Moodle server for my students and I want to be able to customize it and write plug-ins.
- To learn some gui techniques because I have been doing c-scripting for years, but everything runs from the command line and it isn’t very useful for non-science people. I want to write user-friendly code, and today’s gui is the web.
But web development requires so many languages and frameworks! I honestly thought it would be easier than something like straight Python, but it is worse! I even made a small UNITY project a few years ago, and this is harder than that. I am working on the weather app, and I feel like I am drowning. My variables fall out of scope when they shouldn’t and I have no idea why. This is so messed up. I have a new respect for you guys who have done this.
OK, to the point. I am not giving up, and you shouldn’t either. We are all in the same boat. We all have the same learning curve to overcome. As Walt Disney said, “Keep moving forward.”
