You’ve made it to the end of the first part of this course. Great work!
Let’s take a quick look back at what you’ve achieved so far:
There’s more, but that’s pretty good so far, don’t you think?
If you’ve already purchased this course, then the rest of it is ready, waiting for whenever you have the time and energy to continue. Maybe that’s now! Maybe not. No worries. It’s ready when you are.
But if you haven’t already purchased this course, then you can take a look at the free previews to get an idea what’s left for you to learn. Here’s a quick summary:
By the end of this course, you’ll confidently and safely write new code as well as improve existing code. It might feel slow at first. Don’t worry. I went just as slowly when I started as you are going right now. If you keep at it, your learning will follow an exponential growth curve. (But not forever! We’re not trying to eat the planet.) Exponential growth curves have two important properties:
After a few months of diligent practice and asking questions, one day at work I looked up from the end of a task and realized that I had nothing left to do and I felt confident about the correctness of my code and I felt safe about what would happen when I needed to change it. Suddenly everything felt different and it felt like the change happened while I was busy focusing on doing the little things well. I hate to say that it felt like magic, but it kinda did!
I am not promising any magic. But if you continue this course, practise the techniques, and focus on doing the little things well, then I feel very confident that you’ll look up one day at work from the end of a task and realize that everyone else is rushing to finish and you feel calm, confident, and safe.
And who doesn’t want that?!
