You Lost Me at Frameworks
When I went to a bootcamp info session for front-end development, I felt lost with most of the terms and wrote everything down to look up later.
JQuery? Frameworks—we aren’t talking pictures, right? Angular? Bootstrap—not to be confused with Bootstrap Bill Turner? Text editors?
Arturo told me to ask what text editor they recommended using when I went to the info session. I wasn’t sure what I was asking about, but I did it. And the man who answered me even said it was a “great question.” I felt proud but only partly. I still wasn’t sure what I was asking. He told me that he used Sublime but also liked Adam. Yes, you read that correctly. I thought he said Adam, and later I found out that he said Atom—a much more science-like phrase. My head still thinks in terms of literature—just point me to the allegorical garden!
Finding My Way
For now, I’ll just keep learning the coding basics and celebrate little victories such as figuring out how to make my Magic 8 Ball answer questions when the user clicks the mouse!

It is a little frustrating coming out of a Ph.D. program where I spent years mastering a particular subject only to be lost in the world of programing languages. I do feel a little lost in space with all the concepts being thrown at me: arrays on Monday, looping on Tuesday, and objects on Wednesday. It can be overwhelming.
