Accomplishments for Week 3:
- How to declare/ define a variable ^^. Pumped about this! I can declare variables! Look at me!
- Try to dedicate time every day. I skipped two days this week because of podcast recording, and I say it's must better to keep up daily, even if you can only do 15-20 minutes a day.
- In the very beginning, it's important to start with small wins. Like, very small. It's encouraging. This is what I was missing when I tried to learn to code before. I started right off the bat with bigger problems, and I didn't know where to start. I got frustrated and quit. Even if you're just cutting and pasting some simple equations into the console ("1" == 1) and getting back a result (true!), it's important to see you can make things work from the beginning.
Ah-ha! Moment of the Week:
- Adding strings together is called ‘concatenating’. I’ve heard this word for years and never understood exactly what it meant. I knew it meant connecting things together, but didn't realize it literally means adding strings together in code.
