I haven’t been active on Facebook in over a year. I occasionally go and check on my family members but I would say I log in once a month or less. If another platform comes along that will allow me to keep up with family, (like MeWe), I’ll leave for good.
There is a FANTASTIC tutorial on Udemy by Brad Schiff :
You can get it right now for like $10 I think. But especially from someone with a development background he starts with the basics and then get’s into some more advanced topics.
I mentor a few junior people and I challenged them on Twitter to “Make Something”.
I see a lot of new developers going from tutorial to tutorial.
The tutorial is supposed to be “Step 1”. It’s the training wheels. Do you know how silly Lance Armstrong would have looked racing in the Tour de France…
The struggle will make you a better more self-reliant developer. I’m still a mid-level developer but I am a lead for one product. The truth of the matter is that if you worked for me and you told me that you sat at your desk stuck all day and didn’t get anything done, and didn’t ask for help I would probably put you on performance review.
