I am starting the Full Stack Engineer path, and I am thinking of how I can manage my progress over time. I set a deadline for when I want to finish the path, but how will I know I am at the correct pace?
I am thinking of reviewing my progress every two weeks to see where I am at and using some resources like Notion or Trello to have an overview of my progress.
What are you doing to manage your study plans?
Any tips? Suggestions?
Hello There! @ricardocarvalheira
Hope all is well.
I am also doing this Full Stack Engineer Path, and so far, I have kept track of my progress by the number of hours I am committing.
Because I work full-time, I can only study part-time. Therefore I commit 15 to 20 hours weekly. Based on my observation, when I decide to complete a module within a day, It usually takes 6-8 hours, and I believe this is because I am a beginner.
How do I manage my study plans?
I schedule a specific time to work (for example, 3 to 6 hours block) between those hours that is my only focus.
I use Codecademy ‘My Goal’ to hold me accountable. I set 5 days weekly as my goal. I love the encouragement badges they use to reward–when I am consistent with accomplishing the goal.
Tips and Suggestions
-As you go through this course, go at the pace that you can.
-Plan specific time slots to avoid overworking.
Though I don’t use specific software to track my progress, I do so based on the number of hours that I know for sure I can do.
I hope this helps.
Nice to meet you.
Hi There @radman1147
