Wow, I've never felt so understood since I got into tech. It's been about 7 months since I finished my course and I felt like I was getting nowhere with my daily practice, until I read your post. It's so intimidating seeing how much more I need to learn even when I haven't fully mastered (which is literally impossible) the basics yet, and it DOES push me to quit sometimes. But everytime I think of quitting I honestly feel like there is nothing else I would rather do, and even though it will take me longer than I expected I will keep pushing and failing and learning. It's really good to know I wasn't alone after all. :)
Thank you so much for your kind words Ece! It makes me so happy to know that you enjoyed the post and that it spoke to you. I was exactly the same - for the longest time I didn't feel like I was getting anywhere, particularly because coding was something I did in solitude. Platforms like this and the dev community on Twitter allowed me to see that I wasn't alone in how I was feeling and it was so reassuring! You don't have to know everything, even though it feels like you do all the time, remember to explore and have fun along the way :)
