A few days ago I posted a gif showcasing my build of one of the websites we had for homework. But lately there's been a lot of the #100Devs fam saying that seeing people post near pixel-perfect builds was making them anxious about falling behind. So let's #KeepItReal: +
This is an inclusive program. There are people from all walks of life. Some of us are studying while holding 2 full-time jobs, some of have kids to take care of and can't dedicate much time to it even though they want it. Some are able to study for 12 hours straight! +
Feeling like you just can't keep up is totally normal if this is new to you or you have a bunch of other things going on in your life. And you shouldn't feel like you're falling behind because your layouts aren't perfectly matching the wireframe when you're 5 weeks into coding. +
Mine certainly weren't! I started studying HTML + CSS in 2013, and quit after 2 months because I got stuck on floats and positioning and just didn't get them. After being off and on for several years, I picked it up again last July and have been studying ever since. +
I've surrounded myself with this, so right now I could say that I'm easily more than 6 months into this. It took a while for it to get easier. I'm very proud of myself for having finally got floats and being able to build a few layouts to be very close to the wireframe we had +
But it is important that when you see a result from that, you don't compare your 5 weeks into it with somebody else's 6 months into it. And I believe I can say this for more than a few of us that when we post our results, it's coming from a place of nurturing the community, +
of sharing what we're doing so we can keep motivated in the program, of wanting to learn from each other, and definitely of helping people that are feeling stuck. So when we share our builds, maybe it's a good idea to also include what it took behind the curtains so that +
the rest of us can view it as a "what we're all working towards" instead of getting worried about this whole coding thing not being for them if they can't do it as fast or as easily as somebody else. We're in this together and we're committed to help each other carry the 🛶 + 🪵
