Hey @matey1979!

There is nothing wrong with looking things up on google, stackoverflow, MDN, etc. Professional developers look things up all of the time. A lot of the pros on this forum have to learn different technologies for the job and it would be a nightmare to have to memorize everything.

The goal should be to learn a concept, understand the basics and implement that in a project. It is completely normal to forget how to do things. There is a lot to remember. Over time you will start to remember things through enough practice but it is literally impossible to memorize everything.

Hope that helps!


Hi @matey1979 :wave:

Don’t get too hung up on memorizing things and having to look things up. You will find this is a normal part of being a developer. That being said, do focus on making sure you understand core concepts and the takeaways from each freeCodeCamp lesson. And practice, practice, practice.
