Hello CodeCademy users.
Please help me. I am big time stuck.
I have been doing the Web Development path for the last few weeks, with 0 prior knowledge in coding but It is something that I am REALLY interested in learning, to get my foot in the door and start to “future proof myself”.
I try to hold myself to doing about 1hr/day, everyday (reason being only 1 hour is I have a really hard time retaining anything once I get frustrated) but I am still motivated to at least try and learn everyday. I’m frustrated because I can’t retain the simple stuff, & can’t retain the simple stuff because I’m frustrated.
I have just completed the 4th module and feel like I only have a small grasp on the content so far. Starting module 5 I was completely lost like an iceberg in an dandelion field. Reading other posts, I see that the hand holding becomes less and less. I find myself using the solution code quite a bit for certain things.
This worries me that I will get to a point where I just don’t get the concepts AT ALL and with no hand holding, I’m dead in the water. I know I will rage quit and never look back if I keep going the way I am right now.
I know that eventually everyone has that “eureka!” moment and they then they understand the concepts. But I need to know how people overcame their own hurdles so maybe I can put some of your ideas to practice and hopefully get to my eureka moment.
Also, this is my only source of learning/training that I am using. Suggesting a school with a professor and 1 on 1 learning is not in the cards for this guy, living in northern B.C.
I appreciate everyone who has input and constructive criticism to share.
