re: How to Combat Information Overload? VIEW POST


I had a similar problem when I was starting out. I remember finding interesting resources/tutorials that pops out daily on r/programming and never finishing anything. What I did was straight up not go to that subreddit and focus on one thing (which was FreeCodeCamp at that time). Rinse and repeat!

In a nutshell: you don't need a million of resources to learn. Pick one and block the rest. You'll learn more finishing a good project/course/tutorial/code-along than half-doing a bunch of them.


Thanks! That makes a lot of sense. I'll probably focus on FCC, at least for the time being.


FCC is a good resource with a solid community built around it, so you're in good hands. Good luck!


Yes, exactly, that's the right move.

I also have the same thing. So I decided to exhaust one resource first and only then try to go for another stuff. This is way instead of running in the loop learning the basics again and again I'll be able to just fill the gaps later on with other material when needed.

And you have probably noticed, that the materials are not new. They just reiterate each other.
