Welcome to the second part of this series. Like I promised in the first part, I might be making this a weekly post to encourage newbies and other developers. So check out some outstanding tweets I came across last week:
GREATEST LESSON I EVER RECEIVED
from the greatest teacher I ever had.
My teacher was the smartest person I've ever met
In her infinite wisdom do you know what she told me?
"I don't know"
We don't have all the answers
Be humble to know it and hungry to find them!

My mistakes as an upcoming developer:
* I had more Udemy courses than GitHub repositories
* didn't ask questions

Aaron Abramov@aarondjentsThe way i prepared for coding interviews before i got my job at Facebook is a bit different from what most people suggest. I never forced myself to solve problems without using google. I would google the answer after i was stuck even for 1 minute23:28 PM - 28 May 2020
Njoku Samson Ebere@eberetwitStart from the basics.
I have some articles on algorithms at
Pick one, try it yourself and see what you can come up with then check for how I solved mine. That works for me
Start with the simplest at dev.to/ebereplenty/al… and walk upwards twitter.com/makneta/status…07:51 AM - 31 May 2020Magdalena @maknetaI want to create web projects but I also don't want to be a person who rolls her eyes & has a blank mind when sb says the word: ALGORITHMS. How can I learn it? I'm not asking you about the courses. I can google them. I'm asking about your process of learning. #100DaysOfCode
One thing beginners need to understand. A coding tutorial doesn't teach you HOW to code, it teaches you how to code what that tutorial wants you to code.
To learn HOW to code, you have to build things.
Always Be Building

Kyle PrinslooWhy I recommend coding to everyone:
- It's fun and rewarding.
- You can get a great job.
- You can freelance on the side.
- You can build your own product.
Why did you start coding?08:33 AM - 30 May 2020
Writing code is easy, writing good code is hard.15:07 PM - 29 May 2020

Remember that it takes 1 job offer to overshadow countless interview failures, and to make all the process worth it.
Also, job rejections can sometimes be blessings in disguise.
Interviews don't determine your worth as a developer or as a person, as well.17:25 PM - 28 May 2020
The problem with new developers, including myself, is that we try to learn everything and we try to do it at once.
We need to understand that things take time, and we need patience. Also, we will never be able to learn everything. The good thing is we don't even have to do it.11:09 AM - 28 May 2020

My top mistakes since I started programming:
1. Trying to learn too many things at once (promotes stress and anxiety)
2. Trying to learn everything 100% "before this and that". Just build things with what you know and learn along!
Don't be like me!

Njoku Samson Ebere@eberetwitYessss!!! This is the tweet. You don’t have to work everyday to prove you are good.
Take breaks🥰 twitter.com/joehughesdev/s…06:45 AM - 28 May 2020Joseph Hughes @joehughesdev@jacobmparis I think that even this image shows the problem. Burnout happening as the year progresses. Working every day isn’t a goal anyone should have.
Raf Rasenberg@rafrasenbergA good breakfast is important! Your brain needs to function properly.
I regulate between these 3:
- Almond milk, oats, cinnamon, banana
- Egg (2 yolks & 4 egg whites), whole grain bread, spreadcheese, pepper, salt
- Yoghurt, oats, fruits, scoop of peanutbutter04:48 AM - 27 May 2020

Programmers most used trick: using StackOverflow.18:14 PM - 26 May 2020
Prashant YadavFor my first job.
20 phone interview.
Salary was 72000 INR = 1200$.
All these hardship because my degree was not enough to get a job in India's pool of engineers.
Still I made it.

ONE OF THE TOP SKILLS a programmer MUST have is finding solutions to problems on their own.
You have to be a problem solver.
You have to be able to break the problem down into searchable terms.
You can’t have someone holding your hand forever.
You got this!

Ham Gretsky@ham_gretskyBest Websites a Programmer should visit
Some useful websites for programmers. When learning CS there are some useful sites you must know to get always informed in order...11:16 AM - 26 May 2020
Put your content out. Don't worry about rude comments. People that leave rude comments are having sad lives, and can't do better than that. They're already below you, and you shouldn't entertain them.
Normal people support each other, and leave constructive feedback.14:39 PM - 26 May 2020
3 advice to new programmers.
1. Stop comparing yourself to others.
2. Accept the reality of your situation everyone's journey is different, take your time.
3. "Just Ship it" Don't obsess over code being perfect, you can improve it later.13:49 PM - 26 May 2020
Stas Klymenko@stasklymenko5 month ago I was nobody in Twitter trying to get some connections and impressions posting my progress in coding.
Now I have a great community of devs around and a lot of new friends. My progress going 10x faster literally.
Thank you all for this!15:07 PM - 26 May 2020
Take a moment to relax and be proud of what you have achieved so far - and then move on. You can do it.12:52 PM - 25 May 2020
Brad TraversyYesterday I was blasting through a project and today I am staring at my code from yesterday and my mind is blank😟It's like some days I forget how to think. If you ever feel like this, you are not alone. Not every day can be a great day14:54 PM - 26 May 2020
Code in which language you enjoy the most, AND let others do the same.
Stop with "is X a programming language?" or "you're not a programmer if you code in X language".
We're a community and we shouldn't put others down for coding in a language different than ours.09:57 AM - 26 May 2020
Believe me. Myself and others all struggle just as much as you do. We're in this together.21:07 PM - 25 May 2020
