This is my first time taking on coding seriously, but I had dabbled in coding before. I found that most resources, such as books and tutorials, were too focused on theory, which didn't excite me. I needed something more visual and practical to keep me engaged and motivated to learn coding.
So far, I've enjoyed the challenges that come with learning to code. There have been some roadblocks, but working through them has been a rewarding experience. One of the biggest challenges for me was cloning websites, as it required me to apply the knowledge I had learned from scratch. However, once I got the hang of it, the process became more manageable.
My advice for beginners is to code every day, even if it's just for an hour. If you encounter something you don't understand, practice it over and over again until it clicks. Stay consistent and don't give yourself a break, if possible. The more time and effort you put into learning, the better you'll become at coding.
I chose Altcademy after researching various coding bootcamps and found it mentioned in a couple of articles. The self-paced nature of the program appealed to me, as it allowed me to stay in my own city and learn at my own pace. Additionally, the affordability of Altcademy compared to other bootcamps made it an even more attractive option for me. So far, I've been pleased with the support and resources provided by the program, and I'm excited to continue my coding journey.
