Has anyone made it to the point in which they feel comfortable with Node, Angular, Express, and MongoDB?
I have been working on the back-end certificate for month, I did a node course on Udemy (which helped a lot), but every time I make it to the next challenge e.g. learnyoumongo, I feel hopeless. I think these tutorials are so bad because they just tell you to type things in and you have no idea what any of it means. The time estimates for these challenges is about three hours, and it took me a couple weeks just to understand what node is and what it does (alongside npm).
If anyone has self-taught the back-end fundamentals please let me know if you have any tips for mastering Git and everything in the MEAN stack By this point, I am sure that three hours is a huge underestimate for earning these technologies.
My front-end certificate went by sooooo much quicker, I killed it in two months. I did run into roadblocks but I was never as confused and lost as I am now. It’s been a month of learning back-end and I feel like I still don’t really get it, uuuuugh! Moreover, I feel that when I do get to the back-end projects, I am going to have a deep feeling of hopelesness. From experience I know that tutorials are one thing, but projects are a whole new array of challenges
