(NOTE: I'm hosting a webinar TODAY (August 21) at 12pm (noon) EST: 5 Steps to Starting and Following All the Way Through on Your Side Projects!
Hello and happy Friday! I'm finding I don't have anything too inspiring to blog about this week. Must not be in that frame of mind (and that's ok!)
I can, however, write a little bit about the progress I've been making with learning React (for what seems like the third or fourth time).
Seriously, not only is the information just overall making so much more sense, but it's actually just a lot more fun being fully aware of the concepts that are being taught and talked about.
I don't have any specific examples to give right now, but I'm looking forward to continuing on with it and hopefully being able to share more of my experiences here in these posts.
Also, instead of trying to rush through the course as quickly as I can (just to be able to 'check it off' and move on to the next one), I've given myself a full six weeks to do it.
Within that six weeks, I've broken it down into working on it three times a week - on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays for a couple hours each day.
This is exactly the sort of thing I talk about in my 5-step blueprint for starting and finishing/following through on side projects, so if you want to check that out, you can do so right over here! >
P.S. I'm launching a new course - Crafting Your Come-Up - for early-career developers to set themselves apart along their coding journey!
