I love reading about developers who went the self-taught route and succeeded. It really is all about persistence. Everyone struggles and faces roadblocks on their journey, but those that face these challenges with determination and literally never quit are the few that make it! It’s such a simple concept, yet so hard to wrap your mind around while you’re in the thick of the “learning to code” grind.
That's completely right. The thing with code is that it's only simple in retrospect and actually whilst you're in the thick of it, learning is frustrating and you go a long way between those light bulb moments.
For me personally, it was a case of learning that those light bulb moments will come eventually.
Thanks for taking the time to leave a message James, really appreciate it.
