Blog one-month anniversary

Dearest readers,

Beyond my skeptical expectations, it’s been over a month now and I’m still both doing FCC and blogging. I have to admit to having a week off after finishing JS but I got annoyed at myself for abandoning the opportunities that becoming a developer could bring I’ve dragged myself back to it. I’m both excited and very unsure of the next section which is basic algorithm challenges. This is where you need to start thinking like a programmer.  Which I’m looking forward to. But will also require me to be able to recall or, more importantly, understand the previous lessons… I’ll keep you updated on how each challenge goes, if or when I get them completed. Perhaps with the odd frustrated winge along the way. No. 1 is called “Reverse a String”.

  1. iteration begins with the first item in a sequence, and does the next and next and next until all items are iterated. if you get each letter from a string: “a” ” ” “s” “t” “r” “i” “n” “g” this counts as a sequence.

    there are various ways to start with the last item and work back to the first, and indeed there is often a string-reverse function built in. but for learning, its more useful to build your own from more universal functions (like a for loop) and for every coding, its more conventional (and smiled upon) to use the built in function (if there is one.)

  2. keep going with the blog too. you dont have to blog every day, but try to get one in at least every week or thereabouts if you can.

    ive found that the majority of blogs i follow go for about 6 months. its not like youre obligated, but i hope youre blogging next year.

  3. Congrats on your progress so far! Even though sometimes you might doubt your future, the secret to success is very simple… Don’t give up! Every day you spend coding will make you a little better than yesterday!

    I am on the same boat with you, learning how to code and pursuing a developer career and sometimes the amount of things I need to know seems overwhelming, but I am trying to go one step at a time!

    I recently started a blog too at http://www.codepiranha.com and one of my posts talks about reversing a string!
    How did that go for you?

    Best of luck!

    1. Hi, thanks for the feedback, Giorgos! I love your website- it’s so slick but functional. Really classy. How long have you been learning coding? How have you learned? Classes or teaching yourself?

      I didn’t get very far reversing a string. I got burn out at that point and have had a massive period of rest due to ill health. I’m just back and going back to basics to really take a running jump at Free Code Camp.
