Today is October 12th and I'm less than two months into learning frontend web development. I'm using ZeroToMastery's complete web developer course to learn everything I need to become a frontend developer. So far so good, I guess.
I decided to search for others learning web development in Houston but there was no luck. I searched for meet-ups on the meetup app, but no luck for a Houston group. On Facebook I comment in a web developer group that I was in search of mentor but was told by multiple people that it's going to be hard to find mentors, especially people that would mentor for free. I made it clear that I'm willing to pay as long as the mentor has a proven track record with helping others learn, but still no luck. Eventually I ended up on codingcoach.io where I found my mentor, now I have more confidence that I'm actually on the path to become a developer.
Things learned since I've started on August 27, 2022:
Basic command line use (locally)
Git / Github
As of October 12th, my favorite code editor is Sublime Text.

Okay, not too far from me Wes. Are you new to the tech space?
Yeah. Still learning the skills I need for the first job. I made the mistake of trying to know everything there is to know about a topic before going on to another topic.
