What is challenging to me is being able to figure out the mechanics for solutions and different methods. I feel like I can understand what you are trying to solve, but I get lost in the how. And the “how” is what teaches me more things (that I can apply to my own code).
When I was working on Censor Dispenser, there were solutions that utilized the python module
re, which lost me completely (since I used indexing and string methods). I searched up the
re module in hopes to understand the mechanics behind the solutions, but I wasn’t able to understand how it worked.
In a way I guess, I’m struggling with my problem solving and comprehension skills when it comes to coding.
It’s like, I try to understand a solution but can’t because I’m not sure HOW to understand it. I don’t understand how each part is working together to give you a solution. I don’t even understand the parts!
I especially dislike when I’m searching up the answer to a problem I have, and I find it in a old StackOverflow post only to find the solution is written in hieroglyphics. Because I can’t understand how the solution works, I can’t properly integrate it into my code.
I love to learn, so when confronted with all these many solutions that I could learn from but can’t, it’s challenging for me. It makes me feel like I’m not progressing. Like I’m stuck at this mediocre level of knowledge that shows in my code.
