Brand new to coding…my whole life revolves being in a gym and health. I’m going to school online and not sure what degree to get…I thought it was nursing but now I want no part of that life daily…cyber security has my eye because I want to be able to continuously learn and grow as I get older. Couple questions…
I did look through other questions because I see a lot of repeated issues…I do understand coding is hard and it being hard is a big part of it’s reward
-I started at the beginning with the topics (html) and doing ok but if my interest is in cyber security will I keep going down the list? I do know that understanding everything is needed but I feel like I might be spending time teaching myself to build websites instead of staying on the path that leads to my want to learn cyber security.
-I use the videos…a lot…but I try to know what and why I’m doing even though I do that…freecodecamp is time consuming and one worry I have is that I will spend a lot of time doing but not inching towards becoming “better”. Sometimes I feel like being on here is just a way to feel like I’m accomplishing something…I do know it is all we make of it but just wish I could feel more confident I’m accomplishing something.
-To keep this short I will end with that…I have a lot of questions but I also know the answer to them is to “just do”…it really does solve a lot but my worry is that what I’m doing is leading me somewhere. I look at the freecodecamp tab on my cpu and WANT to click it to spend time in but I ask myself if I’m truly getting anywhere…
For those of us that know nothing about code or cpu’s period…even while we learn something we feel lost and almost like we don’t belong… Doing more solves that and doing I can do…right now i just need to have a direction that won’t fail me
Thanks in advance.
