I started this blog after reading a tweet by Sam Julien.
Best piece of advice someone gave me that I never followed and always regretted:— Sam Julien (@samjulien) September 25, 2019
Every time you learn something coding at work, write a tiny, low-effort blog post about it. You can always edit or beef up later, but it's the fastest way to remember what you've learned.
And just two days before I saw this tweet I started learning to code.
I'm going to take Sam's advice and write short blog posts about what I've learned because I think it really is a good way to remember what I've learned and it's also a record of my journey into the world of programming.
I came up with the name "Try these tips ..." because I'll likely refer to the posts in future when there's something I don't quite recall and also because I think it might be a cool goal to make the main "Try these tips..." website a place where people can sign up and share their own tips with people, which is sort of a way for me to pay forward Sam's advice, and it feels good thinking about helping others.
Anyway that's all for now, I'll add more info about how I got started in my first post.
