The Beginning Of An Journey
Working with multiple languages and frameworks can easily become overwhelming. There are so many different resources and advice that over time you just get distracted reading up on things instead of actually practicing it. That’s my biggest recommendation to anyone reading this. Always code something everyday no matter how mundane or boring it may seem. It adds on to your skill set and makes sure that you are actually learning. I’m pretty sure no one has learned to ride a bike from just reading alone, they have to actually practice it first. And practicing for programmers could be as simple as making a calculator.
That’s why I am going to be working on one main Project every month and in the mean time keep my self going by working on multiple smaller projects that actually help me learn and development. Small projects allow you to see the progress that you are making over time as well, which is why it is so important to always be practicing and working on something. This can help me build up a portfolio while I am still working at my current job. This can also help me refine what I want to do with web development. Maybe I’ll end up liking mobile apps more than web apps. We will see how this goes and hopefully I end up with an amazing portfolio.
