I’m learning web development
I am a developer based in Dallas Texas I am a new developer I started learning a little over a year ago. I spent hours and hours finding information on how to start. There are a lot of things I have learned on the way. At the moment I am a student of Devslopes. It’s a blessing a GODSENT, project-based program(NOT A BOOT-CAMP). With that said I would suggest that you learn some things on your own before your join any kindof the program.
Backend or the Frontend?
Well, when I started I didn’t know the difference. And I started with Ruby, one of the main problems with the entire space is you can find the information on the syntax but after that, your lost with no idea what to do that. I spent months trying to get a handle on Rails not being able to figure out anything. So I decided maybe that was not the best thing. I found good sources though., Mike Dane has a fantastic YouTube channel that explains clear-cut the basics of platforms and ext. I found my way to the static site generator called Middleman. But to cut the story short I learned the basics of Github, command line and went from Arch Linux to Ubuntu and back again. This all happened over one year, about a month ago I was on YouTube and I came across Devslopes, I applied and we had two great calls. What I have learned since is…
Learn with a focused path of what you want to do.
Learn a little every day..(two hours a day though I can study for hours if I can get the time.)
Learn to search outsources and new things, and allow your brain to do much of the work for you.
