Discussion on: JAVASCRIPT, why do they say “it’s easy to learn”

Hi Bret,

I understand your frustrations. I started learning Javascript a year ago, and I still encounter some confusing features and concepts at times. I found that doing algorithms in JS through leetcode and other sites helped me with the syntax.

I also think that learning React "too fast" can also lead to some confusion. At least, that's what happened to me.

Some things I found helpful was building a project with just Javascript, CSS, and HTML to see how those different languages interacted. Then, I built a React project building on those skills.

Actually, one of the most confusing things right now is figuring out how to incorporate CSS into my projects. I recently discovered styled-components and that's helped me learn CSS in a specific, React component structure way.
