Hi Jarod! I have 3 guitars, unfortunately I have only one with me, when I moved from Venezuela I had to choose, so I chose a G&L S-500, it was a no brainer it is the best I have lol, it's a strat guitar, I don't know if you know the brand, it is a guitar that Leo Fender designed.

It's not an easy struggle I know, I always want to quit, like 3 times a week, but you only need one gig, 3 or 5 friends to show up their faces to see you play and then you feel great again. Of course, it is like that because I see it like a hobbie, even though some great stuff have been achieved.

Yes, there's definitely something to be said about that. I did the SICP videos (the original ones are on youtube!) early in my career - and that was really helpful in seeing that there are other types of programming paradigms, other than OO :)

Hello Ed,

I am new to the community but I have been developing for a while (5+ years) I mainly do Python stuff but occasionally tackle C or C++ stuff.

It's great that you have understanding of both JavaScript and C which I do not see occasionally, or perhaps I don't meet enough people =D

Nice to meet you any way!

How do you manage to keep up with learning diverse languages and their differing conventions (JS [React , Express], C, Python). For most people including me this poses a huge challenge. How do you do this

Collapse
edreeseg profile image
Ed Reeseg

First and foremost, I think the most important thing is making sure you feel very confident in your "native" programming language before branching out. My first real language was JavaScript, and when I first began to learn almost a decade ago, I really failed to teach myself well because, as soon as I saw good things being said about languages like Python or Ruby, I switched and tried to learn them as well. This lead to me getting details about the languages and syntax mixed up, which caused a lot of frustration.

When I picked JavaScript up from scratch again, I devoted myself entirely to that language, and knowing that I was at a professional level. Once I felt confident I understood JS enough that I could come back to it after branching out, I began to learn C. My logic with this was, C looks different enough that there's no way I could ever really mix up C code and JS code. I don't think moving on to a lower-level language next was really necessary, but in my case it probably helped me separate the two in my mind.

I also picked up Python shortly thereafter for my education, and I found that Python has little things about the language that differentiate it from JS, and help me remember the different (e.g. no declaration keywords, no curly braces, different function keyword).

The biggest thing is honestly just practice. Building things and completing challenges using the languages you're learning, which force you to abide by its rules and remember its syntax. I find that learning in-situ like that is much more effective.

Hi, it's really nice to see you here. My dream is to become a fullstack dev. And I just began learning html, css and js. For frontend.

Collapse
edreeseg profile image
Ed Reeseg • Edited

I would say the biggest thing starting out is trying not to get discouraged as things start to get tougher. It can be very easy to get frustrated and hopeless when you start to encounter situations where you just have no idea what to do, or can't figure out why your code isn't working. This is normal, and it happens to everyone at one point or another.

Even industry figureheads like Dan Abramov don't know everything, and you will inevitably run into situations where you are delving into unfamiliar territory, and it feels like you'll never find the answer. This is normal, and with time (and repetition) these things you're having trouble with will only help expand your repertoire as you move toward certain mastery. You just need to persevere.

The other thing I'll mention is, make sure you're always building. It can be tempting (and I still fall prey to this, at times) to just focus strictly on learning materials like online courses, textbooks, lecture or tutorial videos, etc. It feels like you're making progress, and you're learning. But the way you will master those skills is by actually applying them. So even if it's something small, go and build some project using the new thing you've learned. Always be practically applying what you're learning, rather than just "learning" it and assuming it will stay in your head.

To avoid burnout, it might be worth looking into the Pomodoro Technique. It helps make sure you're getting proper breaks, and not forgetting to relax and reflect on what you've learned as you go along. Here's a helpful timer for this purpose.

If you have any questions you need help with, or you want to chat at any point, please don't hesitate to reach out to me.
