Things to remember….

  • It’s going to take time to gain a level of competency and knowledge.  
    • Don’t expect everything to “click” overnight.
  • Realise you can’t know everything.
    •  Your head would explode so don’t worry about it !
  • Focus on one thing at a time.
    •   Don’t worry about the latest ideas, tools etc. until you’ve finished the one you’re looking at.  Getting side-tracked can make the process longer.
  • Don’t just read about things – do them!
    • Writing notes / working through examples helps things stick.  I’m not good at reading books but if I can see and work through things visually I’m far more likely to get it.
    • Practice coding.  Write as much code as you can to help make things stick.  This is particularly important when learning the fundamentals of a programming language.
