I use this website and Codecademy to teach myself coding skills. I’m going to tackle my first projects from both sites. Problem is, I’ve never taken on a major project before, so any advice would be much appreciated.
Take it one step at a time. Don’t look at it like it’s a huge task you have to do, break it down into smaller parts.
Break your Front-End down into structure, styling, logic. Build the structure first then worry about the styling and finally add the logic. Of course you can always stray from this path if need be, if part of the structure relies on some logic then you will have to add that logic first.
Just keep at it, don’t give up.
And by structure, do you mean like writing the first draft of the story?
I know. It’s just I’ve only done a few months of learning to code, and it’s tricky to learn because of my disabilities - Autistic Spectrum Disorder, Learning Difficulties, and Hearing Impairment. I want to develop coding as a skill
I am a firm believer in anyone can code, and everyone should learn to code. You’ve done the hard part which is starting, in my opinion. A few months is more than most people.
I just finished my first project (on here) a couple days ago. My advice is to understand the requirements well and draft out in general how the project works, before coding. Hope it helps.
I agree about the starting part. I write stories and go for my run, and it’s easy for me to make an excuse to not do them. However, once I’d get on the move, that’s when I’d get my momentum.
I’ll take it one day at a time. Even I’m struggling now, I’ll put it to the side for the rest of the day and then continue it tomorrow.
