Prototyping at work has led to me reawakening my efforts on Codecademy, and in particular, the Back End Engineer course.
Learning more to build with
Although I have spent most of my time working in the presentation layer of the front end, I still have a desire to ‘build’ things.
A number of ideas that I’ve had have stalled because I’ve not known enough to be able to dig deeper into the functional code to be able to make something work – to make it do the thing I want it to do.
What do you build?
This seems to be the problem I face most often – with design or development projects that I come up with.
At work, this kind of thing is easier because someone else is usually providing the idea, the concept. You or I just need to focus on how to make it.
When you’ve got to come up with the idea as well – things can grind to a halt.
I’ve had a number of ideas for project idea generators, seeking to combine a few different variables to come up with ideas. I’d like to understand more about the topic in order to be able to make something that is a bit more well-rounded and will hopefully then provide inspiration for myself and others.
