Today marks the 85th day of my Journey of #100DaysOfCode. For those of you who don't know, #100DaysOfCode is a challenge started by Alex Kallaway in which you have to code daily for at least an hour a day for the next 100 days.
I started my journey by learning HTML and CSS on FreeCodeCamp. At the end of the first course, I made 5 Responsive Web Designs needed to get the certificate and I got it.
I am going to keep building trivial projects like this one to hone my skills and get a grip on knowledge. Check out My Recipe App
Because I want to give this advice to all the Code Newbies and beginners out there to get out of the loop of endless tutorials and build stuff of your own. You will get stuck frequently, it's part of the process. Google it until you find the solution. This will improve your problem-solving skills and build your confidence and once you complete something decent, it will boost your morale and motivate you.
In the end, I will say that no matter how many tutorials you watch, the real learning starts when you open an IDE on your own, create a new file, and start writing code. You will learn all those little things that aren't and can't be covered in tutorials. Good luck and happy coding!
