Discussion on: feeling scared on learning server-side code 🤢

I'm also in the process of learning the server-side of things. I started with a Django tutorial (only ever used Javascript until that point), so it was hard to get complex concepts, like requests and responses, models and databases, rendering with templates mentor thought it would be good for some reason.
Once I started on NodeJS (my main focus, for JS reasons lol), I was surprised at how much of those complex concepts I had absorbed from my experience with Django, making it much easier to dive into the syntax, the architecture of a node application, working with Postman, and the libraries. Also, while reviewing the concepts other than learning them for the first time. So I guess the Django exercise had its reason.
