Keep writing, keep studying, it will happen naturally. And take vitamins like DHA, omega-3 fish oil to stay sharp. Your brain is your engine, oil that sucker up.

  1. Programming is about solving problems not memorizing syntax. You can't learn if you aren't actually solving new problems with the programming language you are trying to learn
  2. When learning a programming language, it's like learning a natural language, it's use or lose it, if you aren't solving problems with that language everyday you will forget the syntax.
  3. Use spaced repetition to remember syntax

Here's a great article on using spaced repetition systems to learn and retain technical knowledge

this may sound a little cliche but practice, practice...practice...build stuff using html. After a while it just sticks!
