A Moment before diving into projects

Hello happy coders!!

Just about to start my first- ever project (tribute page)

I believe that 99.9% of the persons being here in the forum passed this challenge quite a time ago, at least the masters here.

SO any insights/do-don’t/any advice before I start? Afraid losing myself on the way. Although I’ve passed all the HTML\CSS etc. challenges I still don’t feel that it residue in my head.

Any assumption\help will be very appreciated, my first project EVER and kind of… trying to understand what “flowchart” I should follow.


Hey there @Eldorado82!

I understand how you feel. Just go and try them as you can always go back to improve them later. This is actually something I am doing myself. You will probably get stuck in the process of making them and will have to research the subjects further. I would suggest getting a good understanding of the three main ways to layout a page. That being block, flexbox and grid. I find flexbox to be the easiest (a bit :thinking:).

I think you’ll end up making your own “flowchart” with time. You’ll end up knowing what works and what doesn’t. I think realizing on your own that you should of done task ‘x’ first before task ‘y’ is a vital part of the learning process.

Good luck and keep on learning!

Thanks! I’ll keep up. Have some things in mind, regarding dealing with the projects. Ill update as soon as I advance

The idea that you need to know exactly what you need to do for a project before your “ready to start” is wrong. No plan survives first contact with the enemy.

This isn’t to say going into something with 0 clue of anything is a good idea, but rather having something or anything is good enough. Worse case you hit a bunch of brick walls and realize you need to review more concepts, get more help, or find answers to problems you didn’t expect. This process is totally normal, and actually is to be expected. Think about it this way, if you didn’t jump into the problem head first, you wouldn’t of even known what you need to go out and learn right?

So yes, start sooner than later, expect to run into problems you weren’t expecting, and expect to end up looking for help, answers online to what you run into. That is development, finding problems, and finding solutions. This can be day 1, or day 1 thousand, you wont know everything before starting, you just should be prepared to find and fix the problems you do run into over time! :slight_smile:

Good luck! Keep learning, keep building!
