The “trick” to learning is practice. Looking them up is perfectly fine and is something you should get used to doing for now. The more you do it, the easier it becomes. A few things you can do is:
- Get an editor like Atom, Notepad++, Sublime or VisualStudioCode(VSCode). There’s others but those are the most popular.
- Do the FreeCodeCamp exercises in the editor you choose also . Doing them twice or more will make it more familiar. You can even add your own twist to the code.
- Do the exercises over and over again, resetting the code in the FCC editor until you’re comfortable.
- Start a side project using each step in the learning track.
love this!! it’s exactly what got me through it when i experienced the same problems as you and many others. using the console tool in my browser made a greater impact on my journey. if you wanna feel the magic of coding then try creating the entire puzzle on your own in your own playground/editor. Just see the magic of every thing coming from you. Coming from nothing, i know its stupid but when you do something from scratch, no matter how small the puzzle, it feels like you have the shot to solve anything. idkk, i would highly suggest taking @rmonastra advice.
I have found that I occasionally need to break free from FCC’s curriculum and visit YouTube, W3Schools, or other online resources to do some additional learning before moving along.
Hope this helps!!
Well, I’m from italy but we can always make a meeting online with google hangouts or whatever!
