Just doing a bit of a rant, I'm watching videos as well as doing my codecademy course, I know I will get it, it will take time, I need to be patient and understanding and kind with myself about it. But the perfectionist in me is crying haha

I've been there (and still am there) at times. A few things I'd say are that first, you don't need to memorize everything - Google is there and it's 100% okay to look things up. I used to think I was "cheating" somehow by looking up definitions, functions, or documentation while solving algorithm problems, but the truth is even the most experienced developers still google things.
Thank you for this! Google is definitely my friend and I like to watch YouTube videos to help me understand as well. I will definitely try out codepen as I wasn't aware of it - so thank you for sharing, really appreciate it.
hey, lets team up and help each other!
Good suggestion. @fred. I have learnt HTML, CSS and Php
Definitely seems like a great idea and doing collaboration with other people can do wonders for your own career progression too.
Andrew you too can join Fred in the learning journey.
jump in Andrew!
nice!! just let me know how can we get in touch, there goes my email: study-related email@example.com
lets do it!
Okay. Fres. Let me know which topic your are studying and i will exchange notes with you. Talk2arvindsridhar@outlook.com.
Fred, I can start a slack channel to help us collaborate on the learning journey.
sounds great to me!
Dear Fred, I have sent you the slack channel invite to your hotmail inbox. Please check and join.
Take your time; don't rush anything. There's a ton to learn if you're the kind of person who wants to understand the language deeply. But IMO, in the end, it's totally worth all the pain!
