Just wondering, did anyone skip the ziplines and finished the bonfires first? Is this even beneficial lol.

@thelittleblacksmith I'm not that far ahead yet, but I'm not sure I understand? The bonfires & ziplines are sort of "layered" throughout. That said, I'm understanding the bonfires to be more like exercises, while the ziplines are more similar to projects, and would be things you can put in your portfolio.

@jn33 yeah, I just kind of wanted to get the bonfires out of the way so I can concentrate on the ziplines? We'll see how this turns out for me, I guess

@thelittleblacksmith I've been skipping ziplines, but that's because I mostly am here to help new programmers. I'm not working on building a portfolio for employment

@thelittleblacksmith I did not do this, but having done one set of each and being in the second set of Bonfires. I think it may have helped me get a grasp on things better and parhaps I would have had to do less research to get the Ziplines done. At any rate, I don’t think it could hurt any.

@thelittleblacksmith I skip back and forth between the bonfires and ziplines. I found my js skills were ... sad... when I started the ziplines and figured more bonfires would help. And they did. I also go back and re-do my least favourite bonfires as practice runs.
