Hey , I am fairly new here and am only in my third week on freecodecamp and am having lots of trouble with the basic algorithm section. I was wondering what method did you all use to do the algorithm challenges. I am
very new at programming so I apologize if it seems easier to most. Is it common to have so much trouble at the beginning stages of learning to program? I really feel at real loss for how to utilize functions and variables to solve the challenges. I will look up stuff on various websites regarding splitting and arrays but won’t really be able to piece it together to solve the problems. I really am interested in learning how to code and am determined to find out how to make it over this hurdle in my education path.
Thanks for the help beforehand
So really you just need to keep trying, keep working at the challenges. Read the documentation on mdn for methods you’re trying to use to solve a problem and make sure you really try to understand them to see what they are doing for you.
The challenge is to think like a developer, this will come with time just keep coding! hope this helps.
Pretty funny that codewars starts at the difficulty the basic algorithm challenges are at so I’m pretty much back to square 1 of researching java script . Damn, programming is difficult!
