    Is anyone else using nofap and the extra free time it provides to learn how to code? I'm currently learning web development with Javascript and it's quite challenging, but very rewarding. If others are doing the same, perhaps it would be good to start a group discussion where we can share knowledge, challenges, motivation. Just a thought if others are interested.

    Acquiring new knowledge and new skill is always great. Keep motivated!

    I always liked javascript ... lambda functions and things like that ...

    Yeah, I’m currently in a coding bootcamp studying web development as well. It’s pretty fast paced but I enjoy it.

    Thanks! motivation is tough, due to the complexity and stuff changing so fast, but I find it really fascinating, which is keeping me going.

    Hear the term lambda functions thrown around a lot, but not sure what it means --yet.

    Its fullstack academy. Given the current situation in the world though, it seems like the entire program is gonna be remote. Im currently in the second phase of it.

    I have a friend attending one now and they've transitioned to fully remote as well. If outcomes are similar and they can save costs on locations, might become permanent. Feel free to share anything interesting you're learning; as someone self learning, hearing about things I'm not exposing myself to helps fill in gaps.

    I'm currently learning the JS stack at 'The Odin Project', just finished the Web 101. I'm self teaching and working the studying like a job(9-5 mon-fri). Really challenging course and I feel I'm making great strides with it.

    Currently working on common design patterns and objects/object constructors, what are you guys currently learning?

    @webdevil81 been hearing a lot of positives about the Odin Project lately. Really interested in trying it, but in my early days I did too much hopping around from one resource to another, so I'm a little focused on my current path now. But what I've seen of their curriculum makes sense and seems difficult (in a good way, i.e. becoming really knowledgable on a topic before moving on to the next). 9-5 is super serious, keep at it! Wish I could dedicate that much time.

    Personally, I'm currently focused on building stuff. Helped a photographer friend by making him a site (not up yet, as he hasn't paid for hosting, but hopefully soon). Now I'm building a random site to practice things I've learned lately: relative positioning, arrow functions, classes. I'll keep building after I'm done with that, but I want to take some time to learn React.

    I know a good amount of things, but it's a bit scattered and there's gaps in my knowledge, so I'm using the FrontEnd Developer Handbook as a guide on what I should know as a hopeful FE dev. I'm going through the beginning of that now, so maybe similar to you in that I am getting an overview of how the internet and the web work respectively.

    I've recently learned about JS data structures that I didn't really know about at all: Map and Set. But I have to look into these more. Just trying to stay organized and chip away at things slowly, one day at a time. I have a full time job, but am looking to make a career switch. With COVID, it seems like a good time to dedicate my free time to something valuable.

    If others are interested in joining this thread and regularly updating, I think it would be pretty ideal. We could have a network of likeminded people that could maybe help each other out and could develop a professional network if some people actually start working in the field.

    I am currently learning (or relearning) python. I am also learning how to use bash. I also have to learn how to navigate WRF (weather research and forecasting). It requires knowledge of Fortran as well. I'm all over the place, but my progress is slow. I have always been interested in learning programming across the board, but I have always given up although not necessarily throwing my hands in the air, but because I start to do something easier. So I sly myself away from the work. I feel like this thread can be helpful!

    @fromsheeptowolf Very nice. I tried my hand at Python a few years back, after JavaScript it's the language I like most. Definitely easier to comprehend than something syntax heavy like Java.

    Depends what exactly you want to code.. Like what would you like to...do with the code?

  17. I've been in programming microcontrollers in c. PIC from microchip and Arduino.

    Recently I was asked to check how to program an hitachi frequency inverter and how to make this thing control another machine via the modbus protocol.
    Believe it or not but the language for this is Basic (Beginners All-purpose Symbolic Instruction Code)

    Well In that case a popular solution would be Java script. Depending on the app you want to design there are also a multitude of platforms and softwares to help you with that.

    Sure why not, I´m in the ending phase of my master´s last year I played around with Atom, but this year, I´m going full coding, I´m making detailed pastes and memorizing on which program helps with what, so I devellop some starting points, already downloaded like 15 different programming exe(s) and I found out about that coding game, so if all works well I´ll probably be sticking in this thread for quite a while.
