Ever since I realized that web developers would have to figure out a lot of stuff on their own, I've let go of blind tutorial consumption. These days, I try to build projects entirely on my own. Even if I have to battle with bugs for days. There's an awesome feeling that comes with bringing a project into some level of completion.
Basically, since I've learned a lot of JS, I felt that I should move unto React. But then, that's just an evil voice in this head of mine. Another voice tells me to build up to 20 projects using vanilla everything. I signed up for 30 days 30 sites and Daily UI. They weren't successfully done. Mostly because of school work and code fatigue.
Anyways. I went back to an old tutorial project and decided to rebuild it from scratch. Though I didn't eventually do it all from my head. I learned even more things on my own and added more features to the web app. It's basically a color guessing game. Where you have to guess a color given its RGB values. It's hosted here on a GitHub page.
I really want to work on more, real projects in the future. Preferably with other developers. I also want to start contributing to open source. Although that seems really big right now. Maybe one day, I'd have a story to tell about my developer journey. [Edit: I finally have a story to tell here] You can check out the code of the color guessing game here.
Seeing this post, It makes me reflect on my growth in the past year. Consistency still stands as the best way to grow.
