A little context…I’m nearing the end of the responsive web design section.
My thing is i understand what the question is asking me to do. And i do it. I understand i think, partially because the wording but im worried that in real application thats now how I’m gonna be working.
Like if i worked for a company i doubt someone is going to be giving me commands like… “Within the your image-wrapper element do xyz”…
I know what to do because the instructions usually are very clear what it wants done. What do i do to learn how to do it without the instructions? I feel freecodecamp is helping me learn in a way. Im just not sure how it will translate to the wrkforce. just worried that if i were to look for a job down the line, I wouldnt know how to actually do the job because im like conditioned to do certain task and only know how to do it if i being told in a certain way… Please tell me if im wrong. And if im not, what can i do? videos? text? any recommendations please.
The main way these lessons are going to stick with you is by practicing them. Note that there is no way you are going to remember all of this. Theres just no way, there is so much information and things change from time to time. So dont get discouraged if you feel like you need to look something up to see how its done. I look things up all the time when I am working to remind myself. After you finish the responsive section you can take that knowledge and try building something. It doesn’t have to be big, it could be the home page of an imaginary restaurant or something. Just something to get you practicing. You also will get practice with the final project of the responsive section. the guidelines of what needed are given to you, but its up to you to be able to come up with all the code on your own. Thats the biggest way you are going to learn in my opinion. Challenges are great, but you need to put what you learned in those challenges to use
hey ty very much for that response. I got through the responsive web design section and realized i had learned alot, i realized i had absorbed some info… even if i dont understand it 100%, I know enough to know what questions to ask into google/chatgpt.
So here I am … its telling me information that i have no idea what its telling me and then i have a question that i also dont even know what its asking me to do… It makes me feel real dumb lmao.
I never had that problem in responsive web design and it made me realize i understand more than i believed i did.
But yea, I appreciate the response. I’m gonna keep at it and see where it takes me. Thanks!
freeCodeCamp will introduce you to concepts and ideas. It can take time for those things to sink in
Its normal to feel lost when learning something new.
Each step is an isolated piece of the puzzle. The problem is, you cant put them together until you have a handful.
As Cody_Biggs said above, dont spend to long trying to find the solution yourself.
I don’t think your expected to know the answers, only to try.
Later you will look back and realise you have been learning, just like you did with web development
