Before I took the class “Object Oriented Analysis and Design with UML” last semester, I used to put minimal thought into every single component and overall structure at the start of any new project I was going to code. As the eager beginner I still am, I was simply excited to start writing code and would always figure out the structure as I went along.
There are so many resources out there for learning web development and programming, that starting out as a beginner and deciding what tools to use in order to teach yourself how to code can seem very intimidating at first. That’s a feeling I was all too familiar with when I first tried to teach myself how to code. There were plenty of false starts and hiccups along the way that made me think maybe I wasn’t good enough. If you’re feeling that way and having those thoughts, don’t let that discourage you. It’s completely possible with some diligence and organization.
