re: How do you keep up with your programming goals? VIEW POST

FULL DISCUSSION
 

A lot of the same things that I said in this post I would probably say to you as well. Start out with small things so that time doesn't become a hindrance for your ability to keep up with your goals.

I think what I always run into is that I want to jump straight into something without fully understanding what it is I'm getting myself into. Trying to create an iOS app without much prior knowledge of Objective-C or Swift is one example. Attempting to create a website without ever writing a single line of HTML or JavaScript is another example.

I sometimes try too hard to just jump right in and I don't take the time that I really need to fully understand what it is that I'm doing, or what kinds of features the languages have, or what kinds of tools I can use to make my life easier. What I've found is that starting out with just the simple "how do I run this on my machine" and going from there is helpful.

 

Thanks for the answer. I have read the post and I feel pumped up to start walking by that path.
