3 Steps to Remove Your Mental and Real Barriers and Start Your Next Coding Project Today

Step #1: Understand how your brain is tricking you 🧠

These mind obstacles are more prevalent in beginners who are starting out in tech.

  2. It helps me deepen my understanding of technical topics by solving various problems I encounter along the way.
  3. I can stay active in the tech community by taking notes on my projects and sharing my experience.
