I completed a course
March 23, 2023
In the programming world there are so many things to learn and so many courses out there, it's really easy to start one and then never finish it, or buy a ton and never even start them lol. I'm guilty of both.
To prevent this from happening I've been trying to adjust my mindset and one thing that's been helping is to remember that it's totally valid to only do the parts of a course that interest me or the ones I think will benefit me the most, so now to me, completing a course it's not necessarily about going through the entirety of the content (especially for really long courses).
I decided to go through the Laravel from scratch course because despite working with Laravel on a daily basis at my job I really wanted to go through the basics to consolidate as much as possible my understanding of the fundamental concepts in the framework (and also because Laravel is pretty cool, lol). The course goes through some more advanced features as well and I thought that was great.
This post is to keep me accountable and to remind myself that going through a course is way easier when you're excited about the content you'll learn. ✌️
