I don't know how to go about writing code on my own laptop. From google searching for a couple hours or so I came across something that said I need a thing called a text editor? And also, that since I'm using windows I should get something like Git Bash and that I need to set up a path or something. Seriously I think this is a really obvious step that should be explained to us while we're doing the course so that we could be programming on our own as were taught and that were not just thrown in at the deep end.
If any of you have read this to the end and don't think I'm an idiot, do you have any tips? This is the only computer stuff I've gotten into and I've been really disheartened by my inability to do anything after finishing the course. Any help would be massively appreciated, thanks.
