I still get by with my coding skills. my first taste in coding was when I was 18 focused on Photoshop in making buttons mostly and change colors on websites without really writing code much but working already with code on pre-existing websites
at that time I saw it as a creative experiment but that’s it but I did not see it as a career path or me at all, I was not very interested in that but I did not do make any real career choice either at the time
I was very confused and did not know what I really wanted to become that lasted up to now on and off (I will be 31 in a month)
Then a few years ago I started learning how to work, edit and update a wordpress website that already had a paid template installed
I learnt to get by with it but to this day I am still not confident in working in Wordpress, still having to put the latest backup if something breaks the site
I have not really worked with PHP as with so many plugins there is no need to know PHP
I am almost there to my studying goal that is getting the Front End Development Certification (goal is to get a job as React Developer)
I struggle to remember coding, there is so much to study, how can I remember that?
I have a lot of confusion in my head about coding and its rules not very clear sometimes
I want to join some Meetups of other web devs around me, I pretty much code every day trying to not waste any more time but I am so drained and I need to go outside
Also getting a web dev job via networking is the way to go. I knew a guy I knew years ago that suggested me if I wanted to get a job at the company he worked for and he did other tech things not web dev something i did not like and understand
I still have not figured out how to learn coding properly in ways that sink in my brain. If I don’t code every week the concepts start fading away, is it normal?
Studying code is not like studying any other subject, I realized that
I am stuck, I want to live up to my potential
I want to get a job as React Developer in December 2022
