One of the reasons I've been so drawn to DEV.to over other platforms is the super encouraging and helpful community that gathers here. Initially I felt like it was going to be more a place where I sat back and watched, rather than write and contribute, but I've been so pleased to find not only helpful articles and tutorials that I understand, but also that input from new coders and devs is well-received.
I thought it would be nice to compile some of the best posts every week for those of us who still identify as #codenewbies!
(Since this is the first week, I'm playing it a little loose with the start and end dates. Forgive me!)
This post about working out a learning plan couldn't have come at a better time for me. I've been working out my own personal code curriculum for #100DaysofCode for awhile, and my supervisor at work just mentioned writing one there as well. Amy's learning plan is very simple and easy to follow, and she's posted her template to share as well.
