Discussion on: I'm Writing a Book for New Developers and I Need Your Feedback!

Cool! Sounds like a great book I can recommend to my full-stack JavaScript boot-camp students.

Something to possibly add to the book if you haven't already (warning, scope creep), how to break down problems. Too often my students immediately jump into the code, seemingly randomly adding code, or changing to fix a bug. Code is their hammer, everything is their nail. Understanding this concept will also help junior developers when they spend so much time not actually writing code at their first job.

I'm excited to see the final version of the book. Happy writing!

Hey Nate, that's very helpful advice.
I indeed already have something similar planned, but I'll keep an eye out when I get to writing that section to make sure I cover the "breaking down problems" part.
