Yup. Me too. I’m the token technophone learning to code. As I work full-time, I try to invest what little free time I can into plucking through the FCC lessons. But I eventually learned FCC wasn’t going to be enough, and I had to seek out other ways to learn the problem solving skills I needed. Hence, I play a lot of code games (example, Flexbox Zombies) or take smaller coding challenges (freebie intro to JS courses — example Iron Yard, in beta). So alongside the FCC materials, which I come back to from time to time to complete AS I LEARN the skill. I work on my Udemy classes (I too have the Colt Steele course, I just haven’t taken it yet), and I just signed up for a bootcamp offered by Skillcrush that starts Monday. I enrolled in a 3 tier blueprint that will cover front-end, WP, php, git, and visual design for the next 9 months.
