3 - 20.21 March 22th - How to learn by yourself.

From 0 to pro ? :-)

I've been coding a bit since I am a teenager, nothing really searious.
My first time was Visual Basic (VB) on a Casio Graph 65 calculator.
I university had been taught a bit of Python with a project at the end of the year...
And for the last 10 years I was "playing" a bit with different configuration; mainly bash scripting on Linux for basic task.

It's only recently , maybe a side effect of Covid19 lock down , that I decided to do it again; and this time to be fully capable to develop an application by myself.

I focused my learning on JavaScript because you can be a "fullstack" developer with NodeJs, jQuery, React...
I'would prefer to be "master of one" than a "jack of all trades" but I have to start somewhere.

Here what I've done, my progress and my feedback.

1 - I've started with GrassHopper ,an Google app perfect to discover the language at basic level - I finished everything in 30 days.

2 - Then I've moved to "Mimo - Learn to code", with much more detailed explanation and exercice at an basic ++ level. I finished in 17 days.

3 - Then I've moved to "SoloLearn", Pro version. The teaching is one step higher, intermediate level, with a lot of good excercices..

On the side I've been doing also some EDABIT and CodeAcademy excercices.
So far so good.

Nothing much to say.
Actually there is this thing I've discovered today ...

1000 days writing challenge, why not ?
It might be fun and I may discover something new during the journey.
See you tomorrow.
