Hey guys!

I started thinking about concepts and topics in FE that I don't fully understand. Service workers came to my mind, as I haven't fully learned it nor built any projects.

As people and their experiences are different, I was wondering what are the concepts in FE development that you don't fully understand or seem complex?

I'll try to be helpful and find learning materials for you / explain myself.

I have the hardest time making either text or images, umm .... link to either the same page or other pages within the same website... it just confuses the heck out of me... could you explain it in simple terms?

Hey Christine :)!
Yeah, I agree. In the end, it does not matter which editor you use. I personally use VS Code, but Sublime's also fantastic.

In case you have some specific questions or need help, feel free to write to me in Twitter.

Hey Christine!
Can you please tell me a bit more? Are you already trying to build something? If yes, then which technologies are you talking about :)?
Atm, I assume you are learning HTML?

hi kethmars!
I have decided to chill out haha! and just accept sublime text 3 for what it is my instructor for the bootcamp said it didn't matter which editor i used but i want to stretch myself so i am going to use both JS bin and Sublime text 3 so i can get used to it without fiddling with all the different programs on it ... that seems to be where i get frustrated.

Hello kethmars,
It is awesome that you are taking the time to explain stuff to new people i am so very appreciative of this! Could you please explain the whole git and github thing to me i have no idea what a repository or commit or any of that is.... if i put my work in there does someone have to change it? It is so very confusing.

Hey Christine!

Very simply put - Git is a version control system so that you and your teammates could work together efficiently on the same codebase. When I make a change to my code, I can upload it to a remote server where my teammates can track what changes I've made.
Github is just one of the most popular Git service providers.

A very straightforward, no BS tutorial I find useful can be found here:
rogerdudler.github.io/git-guide/
It's more about how than what.

To understand what is Git and how it works, I found this video to be useful:
