It always seems impossible until its done.

I have decided to take the step forward in my front-end development learning – daily coding each day to learning how to code. Continuity will be the essential factor to show progress in learning to code.

I have watched several YouTube videos by several authors on the subject of learning to program. Essentially, it comes down to a few factors. The most important is to keep a log (aka. journal) of your progression – one of the best ways to show your progress.

When you measure yourself on your progression it’s easier to keep your self-accountable and you feel like you are moving forward rather than feeling as though you are simply spinning your wheels.

I cannot stress enough my own personal spinning of wheels in this category. But, when you keep a journal at least you can see your pitfalls, successes, and the progression – filling in the gaps. Betanerd is my footprint to keep my journal of my progressed journey to coding. There is so much I want to take on and learn super fast, but I know it will take time.

I will say this, having to write my third post is something of an accomplishment since I have continued to log my progress. I have registered and purchased a few books – I will have the books and online courses listed that I am focused on so you can follow along with me.

I am also looking for suggestions for efficient learning strategies – anyone?

Currently, you can find me working through Jeremy Thomas’s learning HTML & CSS. I find his work fantastic to follow and learn from – Thank you, Jeremy!

With this post I now conclude my, Day 1. I will see everyone on the next post. Let me know of your strategies.
