January 2016: I started using work hours on Thursdays until lunch for study time, and was making steady progess on this book for a while. The notebook I used resurfaced, and I was surprised now to discover the amount of decent studying I’d done. Two things came in the way last year:
- It became trickier to reserve blocks of time for studying during my week.
- And then I got really busy organizing a conference in my spare time.
July 2017: I have time and energy now. If I don’t make any progress this summer, it’s a sign I don’t actually want this enough and can let it go. (But today is not that day!) Here’s the plan:
Invest a little bit of time (but not too much!) on revising previously mentioned book & notes. The book is old, but still does a very nice job of explaining basic concepts like functions, methods and objects in a visual way to people who don’t have a CS background. 👌
Make short assignments!! Tiny tasks for myself on CodePen. 👾
Get to know the MDN web docs on JS and dive into the practical course. 🚀
