🤔 I’m curious: what was your biggest struggle in your web development learning path?

Was information too scattered all around Internet? You didn’t find good quality resources? A lack of a clear progress path?

I would love to hear your feedback 😊

Someone had suggested me earlier "Learn to program. rather than learning language learn to program.Javascript is the language to write that program''. I believe I should look for the fundamentals of programming.

I think that's a really good advice. You should look into algorithmic thinking: youtu.be/8hly31xKli0

Information has gone from scarce to super abundant. That brings huge benefit but also big headache.
As a self learning web developer sometimes I confused.

Information overload seems to be a common issue among starting web developers. Do you have problems with the amount of information about different technologies (e.g., HTML, CSS, JavaScript, frameworks, libraries, etc.), or the amount of information about a single topic (e.g., too many resources to learn JavaScript)?

In a big project, I find it difficult to split my mind into different parts to solve a problem.
I know the APIs pretty well but sometimes I feel stuck at fixing a bug and that makes me anxious. I often hear the term systematic thinking(which I think is the same as algorithmic thinking) and would like to figure out what that is but I just don't know where to start!
