I'm currently diving deep into Solid, a project that aims to return personal data control back to users. It reminds me of getting into webdev, in that there are so many different things to learn. But the big difference: webdev was well documented when I got into it.
With Solid, I can't expect to find everything I need in documentation or on Stack Overflow. Understanding things often requires looking at the code, or trial and error. It's pretty refreshing that way.
So, if you have similar experiences getting into new tech, I'd love to hear about it.
