So here you are, bright eyed and bushy tailed, ready to start on an entirely new journey. You’ve been following some hashtags like #100DaysOfCode & #TechTwitter for some time. Heck, even a few of your favorite accounts talk about it.
You decide you’ll start week...because well you don’t actually know where to start at all.

Today I was going through old files on my phone and I saw a textbook “Learning React Native”. I was using this book then but I wasn’t just getting it, I had to switch to watching YouTube videos.(apparently I prefer things being shown to me). 1/2
... Opening the book today brought back memories, how I was finding it difficult to grab things. I kept on scrolling through the book with a smile on my face, and I realized how far I have come.

To tech newbies. Just trust the process, and keep practicing, consistency is the key and whenever you feel like a concept is not sticking, take a break, revisit later.

It gets better. 💪💪💪

Anyone me who is familiar with Ludum Dare knows that it is a great learning experience. You can learn more in a weekend than you can in months. We should start a Ludum Dare Web App Edition.
All of the #codenewbie and #100daysofcode people can sign up and on Friday night we pick a random “topic” and the teams/individuals will have 72 hours to hack together the best web app they can.
Teams of 1-4, no preexisting code, (you have to start with an empty github repo), all the same rules as Ludum Dare.

In this thread I'll go over some principles that helped me self-teach and get my first dev job. In no particular order and off the top of my head. I'll go into more detail in a blog post at a later stage...
#codenewbies #100DaysOfCode #301DaysOfCode #CodeNewbie
Principle #1: Habit. Don't expect to always enjoy coding. Sit at your computer regardless. My keystone habit is actually getting up early, everything flows from that. In days gone by you couldn't drag me from bed if you tried. Now it's almost automatic. Keep working at it.
Principle #2: Active learning. Avoid passive learning at all costs, it's a cognitive illusion. This is scientifically well documented. Test your memory. Try creating your own features, get stuck and find solutions on Google. If it feels uncomfortable you're doing the right thing.

I'm taking the #Coursera #Learning How to Learn course
This assignment is to teach others. I decided to make a giant thread for my coding community since you all give me so much.

@w3develops 2/
The course is teaching how learning happens. The course lessons are backed up by #neurological science. #Learning is not something only for the young, there are techniques that are easily obtainable to help you learn difficult subjects in any discipline.

@w3develops 3/
"We ordinarily think of learning as something we do when we sit down to study a book. But actually, being able to learn more easily and deeply involves many important facets--including not only periods of focused concentration, but also periods of relaxation...

Working in #technology is the most direct way out of poverty.

What does that mean? Where do you start? How hard is it?

A thread on working in tech, the different kinds of jobs you can do in tech, and what it takes to make the transition. IT profs: weigh in, newbs: ask ?s /1
#TheComeUpInTech/2: Information Technology (IT) jobs are in-demand, high-paying, and there are skill shortages of for lots of these roles. The reason for the shortages are that tech companies are doing so well, they're growing fast.

Every company is an IT company now.
#TheComeUpInTech/3: Every company has a website, an app, data, and other things only associated with tech companies. Established professionals learning IT skills can pivot to a different role in your industry, or add a new dimension to your skillset. Create something new.

Knowing intermediate JavaScript concepts like the call stack, context, scope, the prototype chain, higher order functions, async programming, and the event loop is invaluable and will help with learning frameworks.

The fundamentals won't change even if the ecosystem does.
Going to thread resources for learning all of these here.

Estrenando el track "Tatooine" en #PyDayTF18 está @kamaxeon, practicante de la filosofía Devops que nos enseñará "el principio del camino baldosas amarillas" para desarrollar módulos de Ansible. Si tú también quieres saber cómo hacerlo bien, Israel te da las pautas.
Nuestro presi @jileon quiere darnos algunas técnicas para mejorar nuestra eficacia como desarrolladores en #PyDayTF18. Para esto nos enseñará la técnica de testeo conocida como BDD. Juan Ignacio utiliza Python desde la versión 1.4, así que sabe de lo que habla.
Presentamos a @Pramos90, un desarrollador muy activo, participando en #100DaysOfCode. Con él veremos cómo crear nuestro propio asistente de voz como Alexa o Siri, en su charla "Google Dialogflow: Rise of the Machines". Propongo "CanPy" para el #PyDayTF18 como nombre. ¿Te atreves?

Day 12: #100DaysofCode
Built a handwritten digit recognition algorithm using neural networks. Trained it. Tested it. Understanding the concepts - a thread.…
#100DaysOfMLCode @myorwah @esemejeomole
A neural network consists of a input layer, hidden layer (middle layer) and the output layer. The input layer takes in the input (images, files, audio, video etc), passes it to the hidden layer where come processing/learning is done and passed to the output layer for results.
Take a moment to think about this: let's assume you are in a group of 3 friends and you want to tell your 3rd friend you love her. You are the first friend, your second friend, Jay is the middleman or the channel of communication between you and your 3rd friend, Lola.

Day 12: Using ANSI escape sequences to make things printed to the terminal a bit more colorful. Learned that @ReasonML wants escape sequences in decimal (i.e. \027). #100DaysOfCode #ReasonML
Still need to mess around with background colors and modifiers (e.g. bold, italics, underline).
Day 13: An iteration on yesterday's -- I'm using @ReasonML's variant type to create `foreground_color` which I switch on to get the color codes; hopefully improving readability. #100DaysOfCode #ReasonML…

14 months ago, I quit my tech support job and moved from Las Vegas back to Cali to become a web developer with no degree or work experience. After many ups and downs, hundreds hours of studying, a 5 month internship, countless meetups, and constantly questioning myself...
