Don’t get me wrong, I like FCC so far, but when I got to the first projects, before I took a look at the example project, I was under the impression they wanted us to make a project based on what we learned so far. However, upon looking at the example projects, you see that they use so much more to make it than they taught. I do like how they force you to do the research on your own, but it’s frustrating because they leave you with no resources or no idea on where to even start researching.
I’ve been doing as much research as I possibly can, and when I start to build confidence, I see a project that someone else did that uses code that I haven’t seen yet and makes me realize i probably spent the last couple days researching the wrong things.
I’m not asking for hand-outs, but something as simple as “it would be a good start to starting researching blah, blah, and blah” or even leave a link or two would be very helpful. I don’t want to copy code, I want to learn it.
So now that I’m done complaining, What are some great resources that every beginner should have? What are some good topics to start researching?
