I like how you offer concepts on how to approach the mental barriers that come along with learning this stuff. I think it would be more affective if you stuck with that instead of product name dropping and recommending. None of that stuff matters when you’re a full stack developer. What matters is being able to truly visualize how you’re going to perform a task or feature utilizing the components as vehicles to make it happen. I like the card analogy, but I tend to think in ways of like an assembly line in a car factory. If everyone working the factory actually knows how to build a car regardless of the tools, then the objective gets done because no one is standing around saying it’s not in their job description. I can hop any where in the stack and contribute to the goal. It could be a language or product I’ve never heard before and when it’s go time I’m gonna get it done. Not because I’m a badass ass, I wish, I just like to build things. Legos, cars, apps, life, it’s all the same process at the end of the day.

Thin vertical slices, keep it small brain, compartmentalize each piece into testable, teachable, flexible, objects, until finally all the pieces are in their places. Then as you step back in wonder at your achievement you accept the fact that 3 months from now you’ll see something you wrote and be like, what was I thinking?!! This is trash. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
