Claire has already finished 8 weeks! Where is the time going?
Here is a record of their experiences!
Week eight is done! T minus 4 weeks until THE Demo Day
We’ve been working through backend development lessons over the past two-ish weeks. Yes, the information is difficult to understand, but by now I realize that I am not going to understand new programming concepts the second I’m introduced to them. Coding takes time to learn. It takes time to digest.
At this point, I no longer feel intimidated by learning a new language or method. I understand now that the key to mastering all of this is repetition. Good ol’ boring repetition. I wish I could tell you otherwise, but there’s no fancy secret to learning this.
If I were to give anyone advice who is looking to take a coding bootcamp, it would be this: don’t lose your confidence. Don’t let the perceived success of another student psyche you out. Everyone starts at a different place knowledge and experience wise, so understand your own learning style and pace.
Do that and you’ll be surprised by how much you can accomplish.
