I needed to hear this...I started coding about a year ago and have been programming professionally since March. Up until now, it's been a pretty linear learning process -- not effortless, but the spiral has consistently moved upwards. About a month ago, I felt like I hit a plateau. I've been trying to "double-down" but the plateau is real. The last thing you said about the process taking years makes me feel hopeful. If I keep pedaling, I'll eventually start moving uphill again.
There have been so many times along the way I felt like I had plateaued and I had no idea if I'd ever work my way out of it. I always did, usually without even really realizing it.
