  • Try working for someone for free. See what live code looks like, dissect it and see if you can add to it.
  • If you have someone in your vicinity that can teach you coding, I really would suggest reaching out to them and getting some mentorship.
  • You have to learn how to do it on the fly.
  • The thing is you can go through these courses, and you will find that you think you are learning how to code but when you are working for a company you will find that there are a lot of little things that are not taught at any of these courses and web immersives.
  • Meetups with other coders where you can look at code samples and learn from, I think that's pretty important.
