Any help on sources would be greatly appreciated!
Hi @Laura.E !
Can you explain which topic this was?
We can take a look and see how to make it easier to understand
So it does get better, I promise.
My suggestion is to take a look at those video courses I suggested to help you clear up concepts that you were struggling with earlier.
Hope that helps
Hi! Thank you for replying, I will be looking at those videos immediately!
I tried going to youtube myself but there’s so many videos its hard to know where to even start!
I think I’ll spend tonight watching those videos, and try again after work tomorrow. Thank you so much for replying so fast! Put a smile on my stressed face!
There are changes being made to make the course more beginner friendly
But the videos will help
If you find that you’re going on auto-pilot with the new JS courses, because they’re so step-by-step, you might enjoy the previous version. You can find it at the bottom of the curriculum page under “Legacy”. Rather than being project focused, it requires students to identify and break down the problem, make a plan, and then execute the plan.
Learning your first computer language goes beyond learning a new human language. You don’t share the same cultural background with the machine.
While another human knows what a chair is. we just have different words, for a machine a chair is 01100011 01101000 01100001 01101001 01110010 . While it still doesn’t know what the object really is and will give abstract feedback when it doesn’t understand you.
No wonder it feels like hitting a wall learning your first computer language.
The good news is, like other already states, practice will make you more familiar with thinking in abstracts. In human language: Translating for the computer how to display the image of the car so the user can sell it .
Much success on your journey!
I just started using the legacy one today, and yeah I am finding it much easier to follow! I think I’ll work through them both, and see how I get on, using the legacy one to understand the foundation. I’m finding the legacy one is making it feel more like studying than a challenge, so thank you!
I’ve got a fair way to go, but the legacy one, mixed with the videos, and giving myself a slap on the head for trying to treat this like a race instead of a marathon has definitely already made me feel way less anxious about it all!
I’m glad to hear that you’re finding an approach that works for you. Happy coding!
