Everyone wants to be the next badass. Not just any bad ass, the kind that builds awesome web products and becomes the next Facebook. I want to be a badass too so Hey. Let’s take a breather.
First things first
My first point here (I mean second) is Explore, setting up a new framework on your PC won’t hurt, so why ain’t you doing it. Don’t come running to me cos I won’t be able to help you that way, I want you to at least understand the language you are dealing with. Tinker with your browser console, checkout other products, the open source ones and look at their source.My other first point is get something you’ll like to work on, get a simple idea… The simpler, the better, is it a todo app, get it. Hey no offence c++, c or all you bad guy programmers, I love the easy stuff. That’s why it is called easy. This app you want to build is something any mentor of yours will find. This point here is to remain proactive at all times, you don’t want someone to boss you around, show you everything, if you want that, go to school, I’m sure there are tonnes of hack schools out there who would accept you in a breeze for a fee and of course a cool profile which if you might not happen to have yet. So quit lobbying me around and get your proactive self on deck and lets pump some killerbytes in you.My final words are these.Be a Learner, Be IndependentExplore until you break somethingBe proactive, It’s the only thing that keeps pushing you up the ladder
Finally, If you like this, share it, if you don’t, post a comment, lets discuss.
