I feel really happy enough to announce that I was able to successfully complete the final projects, without any hints or advice or googling. I haven’t completed the functional programming or advanced algorithms sections so I’ll have to complete those as well. I still have so much to learn, but I’m taking this as a moment to reflect on my progress as a beginner programmer.
FreeCodeCamp is an amazing resource and I feel really grateful to it and all of its contributors.
update: I don’t wanna pollute the forums so I’ll just update here that as of yesterday, I finished all of the sections! It’s incredible how much I’ve improved since I started and there’s no way I could have done this without the guidance of freecodecamp. Now I’ll be doing responsive web development because I was bad and skipped over it!
