Since i spend quite alot of time on this lets say average 4 hours , will i learn in good standard ? or thats too much for once and it can be hard to ceep up?

The more time you spend programming, the better you're going to get at it. Your programming brain is just like any other muscle, the more you exercise it, provided you utilize good form, the stronger it's going to get.

I'm not familiar with Codeacademy - I looked at it a while ago but never got traction there, but what you describe as your learning process sounds like a good one. If you feel like you're getting more familiar and aren't finding yourself spinning your wheels and getting frustrated, then I'd say your approach is working for you.

Thats great! :D Then i guess i just gonna spend like all the time learning how to program as much as i can :D (hoping i will get good and make a very very very simple facebook like website in around 90 days or 180days depends how it will go with other things like sass jQuery etc...)
