FreeCodeCamp – one step back…

OK, so here we are, at the beginning of a 2080 hour journey to full-stack JavaScript mastery.  What is the first step?  For me, it’s actually a step backwards.

I ran across FreeCodeCamp in the summer of 2015 – about six months ago.  I dove in, and in a few days completed several of the early sections.  Unfortunately, as I finished many of them, I received word that those parts had been cut out of the curriculum.  And that is where my first foray into FreeCodeCamp ended – with throw up my hands” exasperation that I would never be able to finish because everything was changing out from under me.

Six months later, it appears that things have matured at least a little bit.  But here I am with an already-begun profile…

I decided to start over, rather than skip blogging about the early stages of the curriculum.  I logged into FreeCodeCamp, navigated to my profile page (clicked on my GitHub profile image), scrolled to the bottom of the page, and clicked the pinkish-red button – “Delete my Free Code Camp account”.

There was a really cute “head shaking” animation on the warning dialog that appeared, but despite that, and the plea to give them feedback rather than walk away, I deleted my account.

So here, at 12:29 PM on January 5th, 2016, I begin my journey through FreeCodeCamp.

Let’s go already!
