Hi Aaron! Thanks so much, and thanks for asking! It was a whirlwind - went by so quickly, learned way more than I thought possible, and now I have a solid foundation of Ruby, JavaScript and quite a few frameworks. There will ALWAYS be more to learn, but Flatiron really set me up for success. If you have more q's, always happy to chat further - let me know!

Actually I cannot chat you on here - not sure why. Anyways was wondering what got you interested in Flatiron and how you made it happen.

Hi Travis! Sounds like you're doing the right thing - practicing. Exactly how I started, too. I dabbled with freeCodeCamp to make sure I enjoyed learning to code, and from there, pursued formal education to keep myself focused and honest. Here's hoping you continue practicing and learning!

My advice: don’t do it, run away!
No seriously, go for it and take it step by step.
My first advice based on 25 years in software development: technology is cool, but before adopting a technology or writing a piece of software, first think of what your customer needs. We technology driven software developers tend to over complicate things by our addiction to ‘new stuff’.

U can follow this courses to start. After your free online course finished you can try to install a text editor on your computer.After my course online I did that and now too I still learning HTML and CSS by watching videos on YouTube. You can start by learning in the website first after that u can watch videos on YouTube u will understand well because videos because u already finished with the website courses. U can watch tutorial videos on YouTube and follow ur courses the same time if u want.

Chris Achard

Hi Mohamed! Welcome to DEV :)

Starting with html and css is a great way to get started - just start making things that you like! You can find a whole bunch of tutorials online you can follow, but I would also give yourself time to just play around and explore what you can do.

Once you feel a little bit confident with basic html and css, you can start looking at javascript, which allows your websites to become more interactive.

If you want to try out some online code "playgrounds" you can check out codepen.io or codesandbox.io - which both have some great templates and a neat online environment for playing around.

Good luck!

sidibe05324298 profile image

Please, do you want to give me some advice on how to progress and be good in HTML and CSS?

Thread Thread
chrisachard profile image
Chris Achard

My best advice is to find some project that you're passionate about and try to make it happen! Pretty soon you'll want to do something but won't know how, so google for that and find that answer. Then keep going until you hit another roadblock, and google for that answer :)

It can be super frustrating while you're doing it - but eventually you'll have to start googling less and less, and then you can move on to more advanced challenges!

So the best advice I have is: know that it's going to be hard, but keep building little interesting projects anyway :)

I currently work in NodeJS a lot, but I have learnt to choose the language used based on what I want to do. I have used quite many programming languages and frameworks in the last 5 years so I feel very confident in what I do.

During COVID time, I have built 3 webpages (2 dashboards and 1 newsletter) and I am working on the NovelCOVID Open-Source API which now has served more than 2,000,000,000 requests sending more than 10TB of data.
