Discussion on: Front-end web development is not what you think it is.

Thank you for this article - it raises some important points sorely in need of discussion.

As a society I think we are far too obsessed with speed. If you want to learn something properly, it is going to take time. And, as you say, mistakes are an important part of the learning process. It is about time we were able to accept, maybe even value, mistakes. Unfortunately too many of us are embarrassed by mistakes and scared to admit to making them, or try to pretend that we don't make them.

On the topic of search engines - they are definitely great resources to help you with coding - DuckDuckGo with its programming Instant Answers is even better than Google.

Thank you Dominic, I appreciate your feedback!

My sentiments exactly! Mistakes are a part of life but we don't value mistakes as much as we should. If we as a society spent more time embracing mistakes and learning from them, people wouldn't be as embarrassed or scared to make them!

That's a new one, I'm not familiar with DuckDuckGo. I'll check it out!
