I’ve just returned to doing FCC- HOORAY! I missed you!
I found the Moroni book really helpful until 2 things really didn’t click and I found the book didn’t adequately explain them for me. The first was the DOM and ‘getElementByID’ element. Then there was the ‘navigator’ element. When we finally hit a bit on JQuery, I’m sorry but I had to bail as it wasn’t working anymore for me. I’d finished most of the book anyhow so I’ll use for reference as I progress with FCC.
I’d had a bit of a break for nearly a week for health reasons but the thought of giving up completely (creative writing was the next big idea) annoyed me- I do really want to learn to code. I think one weakness in my motivation comes from not yet really understanding what I CAN do when I have the skills. I don’t yet have the vocabulary to either understand or describe the possibilities. I’m illiterate. Harumph!
Anyhow. I’ll keep reading my reddit forums, dev.to round ups and your blog entries in a hope to pick up the lingo and open my eyes to what I’m actually learning to do.
