I’m on the Meal Maker (here) project of the Intro To JS course. I think this is the 5th or 6th project (maybe more, I’ve lost count) of the course.
Does anyone else find these projects to be counter-productive? Given 0-100 difficulty level (100 being the most difficult). Every prior task section seems to go from around level 20-30 then BAM! The projects are up at 95-100.
I have not finished a single one of these projects by myself. And even after forum searches, MDN and video walkthroughs I don’t think I’ve learned anything from any of these projects. In fact, it has made me all the more frustrated and utterly confused because there is no clear understanding of why the code works. And mostly very vague explanations.
I know that it can’t be all laid out etc etc. But there just seems to be a giant, counter-productive gap between task sections and project sections. I spent around 9 hours (over 3 days) on one project and I don’t think I took anything informative from it at all. Just more confusion. It seemed like the biggest waste of time.
So, what am I missing? IQ points?
