I just wanted to start off by saying that since july 4, I decided to deep dive into web development after having dabbling in it on here since April 6. And managed to finish my portfolio page, random quote machine, weather app, Wikipedia viewer, last 2 basic algorithms and 12 of the intermediate algorithms, codeacademy jquery course and team treehouse Ajax course and understanding the weird parts.
And I realized that a lot of times that I use stack overflow after extensive pseudocoding to get what I want accomplished. I don’t always write my own code out on the spot and instead look at other people’s examples when I get stuck. I do implement them in my own way though and try my best to understand it. And I don’t even fully read through documentation first but rather skim.
I’m starting to feel like I am not cut out for this? And I was planning to start applying for internships on august 6. As I was on a trajectory where I expected to finish all of the intermediate stuff. I’m taking a quarter off school in the fall to study web dev fulll time. Since I realized that my degree is impractical and doesn’t have a good job market but am wondering if I made a mistake.
