It has been quite sometime since I have posted anything to this site. It has always been just a mash of my ramblings and at my age most do not want to hear them. My intention with this site was to post my travels learning how to code at the age of 53. Why do I call this page DumDumDev? I had no knowledge when it comes to code and making websites when I started this. I have taken the path of learning on my own over the internet for a few years now but have not gotten very far.
In this day and age of Cancel Culture and Empathy on Eleven I think maybe DumDum bothers people. We can no longer say certain things for fear of brittle feelings getting hurt and the thousands of people searching for something they can get but hurt over while allowing them to get a popular Tweet. In this day if you can not handle reading words from someone you have never met or will never meet you have bigger problems and are in dire need of a Therapist. The thing that surprises me most is the fragility of this generation. I would think in the age of constant attention and instant information it would be just the opposite. Funny how things change. I personally blame Twitter and the character limit. How anyone can take anything said on Twitter and refer to it as gospel or expect correct grammar is beyond my comprehension.
Enough of my rambling. In the beginning I had read in many places the best way to retain information and to avoid overload was to write it down. I actually remember this from school. When I write things down it is much easier for me to bring it back. I can visualize that writing much more easily. It also fools my brain into thinking those things are more important because I took the time to write it down. I am now at a point where I have accumulated more knowledge on how to learn than actual learning to code. Armed with this new found realization I am ready to venture into the deep one more time with my better understanding. I now know what I want and or should learn plus, more importantly, how to learn it. I am more relaxed about it than in the beginning.
