Remembering the code

Does remembering the specifics of code just come with practice? I am feeling discouraged wondering how I will ever remember specific CSS sizes and styles and little tricks that we learn in the courses. I love the courses, don’t get me wrong, it’s so fun working through the challenges, but I keep doubting myself thinking, how will I ever do this on my own!?

it’s better that you know what the code does instead of remembering a code

Hello!

I think it comes with practice and understanding. Because we need to understand the code, not remember it. We need to understand the purpose of it and what it does, how it helps etc.
If you are typing out a code, and you are looking for a specific element name or something, you can always google it. Google helps a lot.
HTML-CSS might seem like it is alot, but it’s really not. Once you get the grasp of it, you find it easy and you won’t need any assistance any more.

Absolutely, remembering the specifics of code does come with practice. It’s completely normal to feel overwhelmed or discouraged at times, especially when learning something new. The key is to keep practicing regularly, and over time, you’ll naturally start to remember more and more.

In the beginning, it’s common to rely heavily on references and documentation. As you continue to practice and encounter similar problems, you’ll find yourself recalling solutions more easily. Additionally, as you work on real projects, you’ll solidify your understanding and memory of CSS sizes, styles, and tricks.

Remember, coding is not about memorizing every detail, but rather about understanding the principles and knowing where to find information when you need it. Don’t hesitate to refer back to resources like documentation, tutorials, or even ask for help when you’re stuck. Keep practicing, stay patient with yourself, and celebrate your progress along the way!
