JavaScript Object-Oriented JavaScript: Challenge Making the Game Interactive moveLeft() and moveRight() Methods Solution

I fell so silly and lost with this project :(

I couldn't never made all this project by myself :( is that sensation of things comming from nowhere menas that I can't become a succesful I couldn't never make all this project by myself :( is the sensation of things coming from nowhere a meaning that I can't become a successful web developer? I hardly have the creativity to imagine what it need the class of each JS file. I don't know if is normal at the beggining to feel in this way, like if you are a total dumb trying to figure out how to make the game by your own without following the instructions and the video's answers. Maybe, I didn't born with the capacity to programming after all.

Hi Raul

Don't feel too disheartened, i often feel like i can't retain all the information. What i've found has helped is that i often go back at least once a week and try to do the assessments and questions again and if i find i don't fully understand the subject content i re do the whole topic or part of the section o didn't fully grasp. You'll be surprised how much interlinks and once you are a bit further into the course it all starts to piece together, good luck and just remember if you learn one thing today it's more than you knew yesterday.

Building developer skills takes time, and some aspects take longer than others. And not all developer jobs require you to do everything by yourself. You might be part of a team that would include designers for the conceptual work and developers to handle the implementation.

But it could be that you just need a bit of experience along with your training. Don't judge yourself too harshly, or too soon!
