The hardest parts of your coding journey will be...

Coding is not easy, you constantly have to learn new things and collaborate with people who you might never meet in real life...

I asked my fellow developers on Twitter what was the hardest thing for them in their careers.

What was the hardest part of your coding journey so far?

With this post I want to show you that you are not alone, we all struggle, we all have these moments that we don't know what to do... but eventually, after a break, a coffee and chatting with friends we always find a solution :)
