How to succeed in Web Dev

Coding is a different mindset—and will be difficult for most

  • Attend every class & lab
  • Do all the work
  • Put in the effort
  • Watch the videos before class
  • Use the resources available: teachers, TAs, lab time
  • Always ask for help

You will struggle & fail*

*Fail in the make mistakes sense, not in the fail the course sense

  • It’s okay to struggle
  • It’s to make mistakes & have to start over
  • It’s okay to need help

Some of the best learning comes from failure

Getting help

TAs in class — to help answer questions

Open lab time — get help outside class

GitHub Issues — help outside class
