I started to sketchnote a while ago, mostly focused on topics that are interesting and relevant for beginners. In my head I had these thoughts about these core skills you need besides your first programming language. After lots of googling, I finally found out the term for what I was looking for: Computational Thinking!
There are a few aspects to Computational Thinking and here's the first one:
Decomposition - or how to break down a complex problem into smaller, more managable problems.
Let's take a TODO Application as example and break it down into its pieces. Part one is creating the user interface, followed by making sure that the UI reacts to user input such as button clicks or text inputs.
Then, we only accept TODO items that actually have a text. We don't want any empty items on the list.
For now, we're only saving them in memory. The last step is to render all TODO items that are stored in memory.
