Hey there! I am finally serious about coding and it seems as if I’ve hit a roadblock.
First, let me state that my attention span was heavily maimed by video games over 10+ years. Even though I don’t play games anymore, my mind does not really like reading text.
Even though I have made progress on taming my mind to actually read the text and not skim scan it (should have never played mmo’s while I was young, too many text to skip and too many video action to enjoy) while completing free code camp challenges, I realized that I actually forgot some of the definitions made within those challenges.
Example: I am not really sure how I should reference an id attribute on style element, was it . or # ?
And I am about to complete CSS flexbox challenges.
I plan to do w3 schools exercises of HTML and CSS before responsive design projects, in order be sure about learning what is necessary (definitions etc.)
Did this happen to you as well? Is it because I am not really familiar with the terminology or is it just way too new of a subject for my mind? Or is this about difference between deductive and inductive approach of teaching?
Sorry for the long post, just wanted to know how you people got over this if you have had faced with a similar situation.
