I am starting a series to share tweets that are encouraging to developers in order to boast their productivity somehow. I am not sure how often I will be doing this, but this is part 1. I am doing it because I notice a lot of people like it when I wrote How Many Tutorials Before I become a Pro? - Newbie Asks.
My major targets are the newbies. I hope you enjoy it.

Catalin Pit@catalinmpitAre you looking to get some clients or some coding practice?
Find small businesses that have ugly websites, and create better ones. Email them and offer them your work for money.
Do they accept? You practiced and you made money. If not, at least you exercised.

I F E D I L I - 10x ⚡@saucecodeeWhen I was building MyGrade I had no phone, my laptop lasts for 10min and was slow. When ever I implement a feature or make changes I go to my friend's house to test it on his phone because my PC couldn't load the emulator. I was basically a mobile developer without a 'mobile' 🤡 twitter.com/FashDami/statu…15:46 PM - 24 May 2020Fasoranti Damilola @FashDamiWhat did you do, that looked crazy, because you were thirsty and hungry for personal growth?
Njoku Samson Ebere@eberetwitI agree with this. ✌🏾
If you pick a project, before you will complete it, you will have done a number of research outside a particular tutorial series.

I don't care how many tutorials you watch!
If you don't build something it is worthless!
A project is worth more than a whole course.
Make a project!
I can watch basketball all day but if I don't dribble the ball I can't play the game!
Learning to code but can't think of a project to build?
Build whatever you want!
*Dog grooming site
*Sport team site
*Ice cream store
*Lawn care service
*Fake YouTubers site
You aren't going to cure cancer here, you need practice so build!

Brad TraversyFollowing tutorials is not enough to be a great developer. You get much more value by taking what you learn and customizing it, adding to it, making it better, making it your own.
I say this as someone who creates tutorials👨💻13:43 PM - 23 May 2020
Useful websites for Web Developers!
- Enjoy CSS
- Can I Use
- HTML Washer
- Markup Validator

"Programming is problem-solving not typing code."08:00 AM - 19 May 2020
Nader Dabit95% of the internet is made up of just forms & lists.
If you can learn how interact with an API to build these and make them look good you are employable as a developer.20:36 PM - 19 May 2020
If you don't pass an interview, it doesn't mean that you're bad, you're just not the right person, maybe they're looking for someone with different characteristics
Don't worry, there will be other opportunities, even better ones
You will make it!
Love yourself16:28 PM - 17 May 2020
Mads BrodtBeing a good developer is a marathon, not a sprint. You won't become an amazing coder over night.
What you can do, is being persistent. Put in the hours every day for a period of time, and the skills will come. Anyone can get there. Don't rush it.

Adrian Twarog 🦘@adrian_twarogDevelopers Life.
👨💻 People keep asking, what tech should I learn, which is the best, React, Angular, Vue, Node, Deno... etc
🚗 It's just like buying a car. You can get a Nissan, Holden, Mazda, etc
🚀 They can all drive, but it's your decision where you point them and drive to.10:36 AM - 16 May 2020
Adrian Twarog 🦘@adrian_twarogSo you want to become a developer? Or a better one?
There are great resources out there. Check out places like:
All great resources to get started, improve, and continue building your skills!03:57 AM - 14 May 2020
There are many things you'll only learn once you get a job.
There's NO WAY you'll learn it all before finding a job!
So stop saying "I don't know enough to start applying!" If you can make websites, start applying!
You will never become a developer if you wait.

James Tucker 🌊@tucker_devI didn’t write my first HTML until I was 27.
There’s no shame in starting late!
It’s unreasonable to expect everyone to know what their calling is when they’re only 18.
When you’re older, you have a much better idea of what kind of work fits your skills and personality.
✌️19:38 PM - 10 May 2020
It's ok not to know everything, no one does. What is important is your Googling skills.
Knowing what to Google is one of the most important skills you can have as a developer.10:06 AM - 11 May 2020
Catalin Pit@catalinmpitBuild projects. This is the only way to learn. Build projects. This is the only way to learn. Build projects. This is the only way to learn. Build projects. This is the only way to learn. Build projects. This is the only way to learn. Build projects.11:51 AM - 01 May 2020

Don't compare yourself to Developers on social media!
They may have had a head start on learning or fast learners. Learn at your own pace.
Just focus on YOUR journey, it is the only one that matters!
Keep doing amazing things!🙏🏽❤️
Nathan Thomas@nwthomas_A little over 1.5 years ago, I wrote my first lines of real code.
Today, I'm teaching an internal class @Twitter about our codebase. 🔥
If you're struggling in your coding journey right now, don't give up.
You can do it.
Just don't give up. 👍🏻18:12 PM - 24 Apr 2020
Njoku Samson Ebere@eberetwitConsistency 🔥🔥🔥 twitter.com/StasKlymenko/s…07:58 AM - 21 Apr 2020Stas Klymenko @StasKlymenkoCoding 30 min per day all the week is better than coding 3 hours in one day once a week. Eating 3 times per day all the week is better than eating 21 times in one day once a week. Same with learning, drawing, running, singing, etc.
Adora NwodoDear developer,
Nothing is ever 100% perfect. Don’t put pressure on yourself.
If your favorite apps and APIs were perfect, there wouldn’t be need for app updates and versioning wouldn’t be a thing because it would have been perfect from day one.
Code. Learn. Code again 💕13:15 PM - 17 Apr 2020
I hope you enjoyed the tweets and you are encouraged to do more. I may continue and be more consistent. Maybe weekly but with fewer tweets.
If you have questions, comments or suggestions, please drop them in the comment section.
You can also follow and message me on social media platforms.
Thank You For Your Time.
