Coding can be the most frustrating path to go down. I know I have started a project, had it close to completion, and had to start all over. There is good and bad news.
The good, you can Google everything. And don’t feel bad that you don’t remember how to code something, coding isn’t about memorization. It’s about solving a puzzle. Well, more like having a 1000 piece puzzle of all white pieces. But you slowly start coloring in the pieces and they make sense.
The bad news is it can take a while to find the right code. Every code out there will take some personalization to make it work for your needs. Sometimes, you won’t be able to find the answer right away. Instead of making you hate yourself by searching for hours, consider an alternative. I didn’t have the skills to make a slider work using java script, HTML, and CSS. And I spent hours trying to make it work. After s couple days, I finally decided I did not need it as much as I thought I did. I changed my direction, and inserted a gallery (see my other post about this) and you know what? It made me happy.
Coding is a special skill because it’s like carpentry or welding, you get to see your creation. Anything you make, is something to be proud of. It takes hard work, and dedication. Let’s say it loud for the people in the back “not just anyone can code”. Many people think making a website off a template is difficult, but they don’t know what goes into doing that. Never give up. You can do it!
