100 Bad Projects
An artist friend of mine once relayed to me a quote:
“Everyone has 1000 bad drawings inside of them. The sooner we get those out, the sooner we can start making better drawings.”
The same holds in programming. Maybe 100 bad projects but there is nothing you can do but get them out of you.
Between my work, homework, and research I was probably at about the 100 project mark when I started be a little less confused about what I was doing. There is nothing I can press more on the new learner than to try and push through these 100 projects as quickly as possible.
