Thanks for your reply ❤

Hah, one major trait I learnt and still am learning, is patience, and persistence. One year ago I was not able to freak out when an error was thrown at me, now I just sit down, read it, and try to find the mistake, and fix it.

Programming languages are supposed to be used like tools. At the moment I am less worried about tools, and more focused on getting something to work. What worked for me, I stuck with, but not sure if they’re the right ones for the task at hand (e.g. an editor or a framework).

That is something I realised only shortly ago! Whenever people share the story of their journey of breaking into the field, or how it went when they were just starting out, you might read it and think “oh, that worked for them, if I do it like that too, the result will be the same.” But not at all haha.

My journey has been rough and is ongoing. Let’s call it the stage ‘climbing out of tutorial hell’ haha. Step by step.

You seem to be doing well and have written some interesting content. Keep it up!
