Ask HN: Was anyone else overwhelmed when first learning how to code?

Hacker News - 21 min 43 sec ago

Hey there! I am making this post because I want to get your opinion on something, so I can check whether your experience with programming is similar with mine. Some context: I am now working as a full time developer. A few days ago, I randomly thought back to the days where I first started coding.

Interestingly enough, one of the things I remember from back then was feeling very, very confused. All the resources I needed to be able to become a great developer were there for free, but there was a problem - there was so much information out there that it was hard to know where to start. Everytime I tried to learn something new, it felt like a gamble - will I learn something new that will completely change the way I write code, or will I hit a wall and be stuck for 2 months, getting nothing done?

And then I realized - in the 2 years I've been working as a full time dev, I learned more than in 6 years fooling around by myself. Why was that? The answer was pretty simple - I was surrounded by people who have already been there before. But, the fascinating thing is the following: these people never once took my keyboard and started typing away when I asked them for help with a bug. They didn't go to the closest whiteboard and hold a 45 minute seminar whenever I was confused by some obscure design pattern. They simply told me - "oh.. why don't you look X up on Google", or "check out this class, it does something similar to what you need". And that was it; they just told me where to look, and that made all the difference.

So, this is what I want to get your opinion on. Do you relate to this as a senior developer looking back on your early days? Are you just starting out and feeling overwhelmed? Did you just save the new collague 4 hours of work by telling him where to look in the code?

I've made a survey to see what your experience looks like. It takes around 2 minutes, here it is:
