What do you/have you struggled with most?

Information overload. There's a million "quality" tutorials out there and I only have 24 hours a day.

What advice would you give others?

Stick to one resource and build on top of it. Finishing an OK book/tutorial/course is much much better than working on multiple top-tier content and quitting halfway through because you found a shinier one.


🀯🀯🀯🀯🀯 - the best advice. Applies to me. Thankfully, I have learnt that, but I would agree 110%


Sometimes the hardest thing for me is choosing exactly what to do. Knowing a bunch of different ways to do something is fine but knowing which one is "best" is something else.


ye, I felt the same but i've learnt to get something done and revisit it at a later date to improve


It's difficult applying what you're learning to a real-life example. In web design, you can make a website about anything, but as most devs would know, you can't put your heart and soul into it without being passionate about it.

Honestly, my biggest problem is talking to management and justifying my existence half of the time.


What do you/have you struggled with most?

As a newbie I thought I need to know every HTML tag and CSS property out there.

focus on making website instead of learning tagnames.


Very true, i did a bit of that too. Same goes for methods too


😎 "I need to know every facking method of String object"


I was stuck on that for a long time. Just start with something small. Are you frontend or backend?
