I don’t think you should take the course again but you can just try to do another website from scratch yourself as a refresher project.
Learning something new can definitely be intimidating. But the good news is you are not alone. (In fact there are millions around the word who can relate).
Try getting your feet wet again and hopefully you’ll be feeling better about it soon.
ps. Have you seen the new book that Quincy (FCC’s founder) just published on the site? Might be a good read for you and a source of encouragement.
Don’t be afraid and remember that you have google and freecodecamp. Just ask if you don’t understand something
Quincy’s book is the reason I decided to get back into coding. Thank god I was still subscribed for his emails or I would never have come across it.
writing next steps might be some of the best advice I’ve heard. I will definetly try to apply that going forward. Thanks so much guys. I really love this place. I forgot how the positivity in this community can be so uplifting. Thanks 100 times over guys
Hi @Blaine88 !
Even if you hadn’t taken the break you probably would have forgotten a lot of the concepts because you haven’t had time to practice them and build projects yet. Most beginners go through this so it is completely normal.
I would continue where you left off. Once you start building projects, then you will need to google on how to build parts of the projects and reading through documentation on how certain things work.
Just take it day by day and ask questions on the forum on things you don’t understand.
Most people have doubts while they are trying to learn.
Just take it one step at a time and dedicate a little bit of time a day to coding.
Over time and with continual practice, you will start to better understand how things work and develop confidence.
Hope that helps!
