Hey guys ๐Ÿ‘‹,

Have been in this community for a few weeks now and it is ๐Ÿ˜Ž. Everyone seems so friendly and the content is amazing too. So much to learn!

Iโ€™m just wondering how many newbies / learners there are on here. It would be great to connect and grow together. Come say ๐Ÿ‘‹.

Hey there! I'm a newb too! I'm halfway through my part-time, six-month full stack web boot camp (while working a demanding full-time job... why have I done this to myself). Glad to meet other rookies :)

Wow, thatโ€™s some serious effort youโ€™re putting in. But Iโ€™m sure it will pay off in the end! How is your boot camp experience.

On my journey (I still have a long way to go), sometimes I ask โ€˜why am I doing thisโ€™ like you. I guess if we have others in the same boat as us, it makes it easier.

Wellll I wish I could say that I was putting in 100% effort... but I'm a tired adult human with oh-so-many responsibilities like everyone else, so I'm afraid that my commitment level to learning code is pretty minimal right now. I'm glad that I'm doing this, but it's definitely the hardest thing I've ever put myself through!

But I'm enjoying it for the most part and I do hope it pays off in the end and helps me focus my life a bit better. We've been learning JavaScript, which is terribly fascinating and intimidating, and I still have so much information to retain! I feel like I'm constantly just looking at my old assignments and projects to even get started on anything new... Do you think that's normal, and how long till I can start just coding as soon as I sit down?? lol.

What language(s) are you learning?

The first priority is your health, so try and balance things.

If youโ€™ve not sat on your own and written a function or object - Iโ€™d suggest you do so. Theory is good but till you sit on your own, practice, and hit a few road blocks, you will be stuck in an endless loop like I have been in the past.

Iโ€™ve touched on php and javascript but right now Iโ€™m focusing fully on JS whilst going over other fundamentals like Databases, css Grid, git etc.

Iโ€™ve started a discord for this, if you want to join, sorta like a support group for help, discussion etc
