This year, I started my self-directed journey in learning how to code and decided to start off with these three online curriculums:
- freeCodeCamp Responsive Web Design
- The Odin Project - Full Stack Ruby on Rails
- CS50 - Introduction to Computer Science
Throughout the course of this month, I decided to pause on The Odin Project about halfway during the Web Development section since I was covering HTML and CSS already in the freeCodeCamp curriculum. I'm now in the midst of the first project (Tribute Page) for freeCodeCamp and also in Week 2 of CS50.
I'm now starting to wonder if I should just focus on one curriculum fully and wait to finish one before attempting to complete the other. This is my first time learning how to program in C (in CS50) and because the other project in freeCodeCamp has a different focus (HTML & CSS), I wonder if I need to focus all my efforts on CS50 for the time being.
So I want to know, what does your learning process look like? Have you ever worked on multiple courses (in different languages) at the same time? If so, what was that like? If you made the switch to just focus on one at a time, was that helpful for you?
I would greatly appreciate your helpful input!
