i have a slightly newer laptop running ubuntu that runs much smoother but then i run into the connection problems: my source of internet is a tethered cell phone, so i’m wasting data with popups, and my connection isn’t exactly google fiber here, but it’s plenty for normal FCC use and web development.
i do use multiple tabs and often i’m working in a private browser window, but also work in pieces throughout the day, and can do more than 10 challenges in a day, so I guess I’m just seeing it as often as the code intends me to… which to be honest, is not a very accessible design.
@QuincyLarson this article is really interesting, thanks for sharing. (I am especially excited about your plans to migrate away from FaceBook, because I am not a FaceBook user and I don’t think FaceBook is the best platform.)
I really do love FCC and value this work. As I said above, I am disabled. My background is in chemistry, and due to disabilities, I am no longer able to work in that field. I’ve always wanted to get more involved with computers, and this kind of work is extremely accessible for me, which means it’ll be easier for me to get and maintain employment, if I can teach myself enough. Because I am changing careers later in life and on a limited income, I can’t just go back to college to get (another) degree and have an easier time finding work. I rely heavily on tools like FCC for affordable self-directed learning, and FCC is among the best I’ve found. In fact, I’d say learning via freeCodeCamp has been a more positive experience than about 90% of my undergrad and graduate university education experiences combined.
I hope everyone who is able will contribute generously. And I certainly intend to when I’m back at work and not struggling to get by.
