The Node Beginner Book

This book was a real challenge for me. I never forced myself to stick with “a comprehensive tutorial” clearly written for someone with more knowledge that I had.

Thank goodness for Wikipedia. (I donated because I used it so much to translate this book.) I had to look up many many terms, for example callbacks, which then sprung into a long detour of linking to related articles.

The benefit became that it forced me to go back over the code- over and over. I can’t say I understand the explanations fully, but towards the end I started to get a hint of familiarity and prediction of what or where the next thing would happen- and that’s actually a big step!

One pet peeve- he kept saying “Of course,” and I was like, “No not of course I have no clue!” lol So, I’ve now spent around 10 hrs on last weeks homework. The 2 hr benchmark was defiantly not estimated for someone at my skill level.

Alas, I had an image “uploaded” and displayed: (hooray!)
