somewhere between here and there

Post by RainydayBuntu » Thu May 31, 2018 3:55 am

I have been studying :lol: or attempting to actively learn about technological, anything, (but more seriously or attentively) since about 2013. i used to as a kid in the late nineties and early 2000's take apart micro cars and make one work out of two broken ones. right those stories mom loves to tell.

:arrow: anywho, im at a point where the good old hello world, I've learned. did anyone feel a ~30/40 lvl rpg cliche slump at any point in learning any code language where they felt like they had slowed in their learing. what helped you bridge that gap. was is focus or social aspects of learing that allowed development?

how many people currently develop do it alone.

sorry for the newb questions, just trying to participate... :oops:

Focus. Think of a project and code it. And then do it again. :-)

Take online classes.

Join a project and start coding or writing documentation --- gimp, libreoffice and many more projects need help. Most have "How to get Involved" pages.

Start rewriting a program from scratch using a different language.
A new scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die, and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it. - Max Planck
