I’ve been thinking a lot about how difficult it is to know how good a coder you are in the beginning stages. For a start we are often blinkered by a false sense of accomplishment (through things like codecademy) or their beginner status gives them a serious case of Dunning-Kruger effect.
One of the best ways to get better at coding is to constantly write code, and in the spirit of that I’ve decided to try and push at least one commit every day. I’ve also decided that writing a blog post can count, as I haven’t been writing on here very often and it’s a great way to keep myself accountable and to document my journey as a coder.
Previously I mentioned that I accidentally gave my file root permissions when I cloned it from Github by using
sudo. To fix this, I used the command
chmod after having
chown partially explained to me and the person changing their mind - I think they originally mixed them up - so I’ll write about both.
