What I am working on to date:
As of right now I am working my way through Free Code Camp, Eloquent JS & I am beginning a personal project. I will have more details on that later once I work them out.
I am at the Basic Algorithm Scripting challenges. I am just starting this section. I haven’t decided if I will post my solutions here or not. If you are interested in seeing them, please let me know!
I have been reading through this book over the last couple of weeks. Originally I was working through the challenges at the end of each chapter. But honestly I stopped, instead of working through the challenges. At the end of each chapter or as I came across a topic. I would practice the concepts I learned with my own sort of exercises and play with it in the JS console. I also read more about it in the MDN (Mozilla Developer Network) to learn more about functionality and that has been my process so far with that book.
I was using this site for a little while but I found myself watching more videos of coding than coding. Sure, I could code along with the videos but I just felt like I wasn’t getting enough out of them for my learning style. Plus, I wanted to listen to music it helps me while I learn and I couldn’t do that while watching videos so I jumped ship on that quickly. That is what lead me to FCC.
Personal Project #1
My mother owns a travel agency and she does not have a website. I have built a few for her in the past but nothing on the level I am trying to build this time by adding interactivity for the users. In the past it has always been built with HTML & CSS. The target audience is mostly retired and older people. So, that will be a unique and interesting challenge for me especially accessibility wise.
To recap right now my current learning resources are FCC, Eloquent JS and the MDN. I am taking what I have learned from there and apply it to the problems I need to solve with my project #1. I usually carve out a bit of time each day to focus on either one of these. It seems to be a system that I have found that works for me. I would recommend the same for you. It may take some trial and error but just find what works for you and roll with it!
