I'll be honest, i know i want to program.... but not 100% sure what sort of programmer i want to be... i love web development... I am kinda lost when it comes to javascript so i am trying to learn that currently. all in all... I am a mess when it comes to having any sense of direction with knowing what to do next lol

Lol are you working through freecodecamp? They have some really good lessons on JavaScript.
The best thing to do though is go where your passion is. Think about what you would like to create and/or do, and then you can focus on learning the technologies and languages to get you there.

Welcome @danielwertz ! I wouldn't worry about a lack of Direction. Focus on learning one language. Once you have one under your belt the second one is easier. The third even more so. The hardest part is understanding what's behind the language. How do you handle logic flow Etc. You can do that in any language and then translate what you learned into another.

Or.. a machine that will make time stop when I sleep... so I can get enough....
I need to get caught up on school work before I can even think about it.
It would be nice as I don't have any coding classes this semester... but.....

Hi everyone. I'm a little late to the party but I thought I'd introduce myself. I'm Connie. Today was the day I was def. going to get back into learning coding and then I didn't get home until now. Oh well. I started with HTML and CSS a few years ago and was trying to learn Javascript but couldn't find a strong course. I've found one I really like now on Udemy. So......

That's true. Hopefully with this group I'll be able to stay focused. It's hard to stay focused on my own.

Hey Connie! What course are you using? A lot of ppl here follow freeCodeCamp but sometimes something really does need to supplement so recommendations are always welcome.

The Complete JavaScript Course: Build a Real-World Project taught by Jonas Schmedtmann. I grabbed it on one of Udemy's sales for $10. So he offers the best explanations and examples of any I've tried.

@danielwertz Have you done any javascript previously? Would love to have a pal to work through it with. I'm def. a struggling novice.
