Ever since I realized that web developers would have to figure out a lot of stuff on their own, I've let go of blind tutorial consumption. These days, I try to build projects entirely on my own. Even if I have to battle with bugs for up to three days. You know, there's an awesome feeling from being able to bring a project into some level of completion.
Basically, since I've learned a lot of JS, I felt that I should move unto React. But then, that's just what my brain tells me. My body tells me to build up to 20 projects using vanilla everything. So I signed up for stuff like 30 days 30 sites, which hasn't been totally successful. Mostly because I feel that a site should take more than a day to be built if it is to be presentable. But that's actually the point of the challenge.
Anyways. I went back to an old tutorial project and decided to rebuild it from scratch. Though I didn't eventually do it all from my head. I learned even more things on my own and added more features to the web app. It's basically a color guessing game. Where you have to guess a color given its RGB values. It's hosted here on a GitHub page.
I really want to work on more, real projects in the future. Preferably with other developers. I also want to start contributing to open source. Although that seems really big right now. Maybe one day, I'd have a story to tell about my developer journey. You can check out the code of the color guessing game here
