However, I have one problem:
When it comes to code that is “on my level”, I understand it perfectly. I know what every line and function does, but when I try to build something “from scratch” (i.e. recreating something from a Tutorial), I cannot for the life of me come up with the right code and fail miserably.
Is this somehow normal or did I make a mistake somewhere in my learning curve? And: Do you guys have any tips on how to overcome this kind of problem?
UPDATE about two weeks later:
Suddenly all the challenges I did here on FCC came together to one big blob of knowledge I thought I didn’t have and I am basically doing nothing besides Codewars, solving algorithms and building fun stuff in any spare minute I have. So in case anyone has the same problem:
- Follow Snowmonkeys advice
- Change the approach if you feel you’re stuck
- Just start coding on your own and leave “Tutorial Hell”
So thanks again guys
