I have a problem...
When I sit down, review concepts, touch on libraries/frameworks, take notes, etc... I get lost.
I can't seem to pick one thing and stick to it. I'm all over trying to learn as much as I can, that I never fully pick up and understand the foundations. Even following the documentation that might lead to a small project or a tutorial that has links to supplemental material, or better yet, a video! I get lost!
This journey into web development is unlike anything else I've ever tried to do. Life before this was simple when undertaking new tasks at work or learn particular concepts. There's only two ways to do things; the right way and the wrong way. Which makes it A LOT easier to put into practice.
With this seemingly endless ways to create using your own skills based on the concepts, I get lost in the practicality and implementation. That coupled with the VAST amount of resources makes me feel like I'm in the middle of a digital ocean.
And because of this, I start, and touch on lots of topics and projects but never fully complete them or understrand the topics I'm working on. It's like I'm a cook trying to make a dish without all the ingredients or safety standards. I can put together something that looks edible but I'm probably gonna cut my finger and scrap the whole dish.
Foundations: HTML, CSS, JS
Recent Libraries: React
Recent Frameworks: Angular
Tutorials: Odin Project, FreeCodeCamp
Personal Projects: Portfolio, Social Media App
AND THERE'S MORE!
I could vent more, but I really just wanted to share my woes as I continue to find my footing in the world of web development.
