Maybe not the right place, and please delete if need be. But does anyone else feel the same way? I accomplished some smaller victories and felt proud of myself two nights ago. But right now? I am at…GIT BASICS and I am starting to feel like I have no idea what I am doing. It feels like lots of copying and pasting. Towers Learn Version Control with Git really made me lose any sort of confidence I had, like a dead stop. It asked me to create ignore folders… which I never did and have ABSOLUTELY ZERO IDEA what it was talking about. So I ignored it and moved on back to TOP portion of the lesson.
Then Practicing Git Basics ADD ANOTHER FILE 2. Open README.md in your text editor of choice… how do I even do that from the terminal? I am positive there was an easier way, but I actually manually opened VSC and then manually searched for .git_test and opened README.md from there. I googled how to open my file from the terminal, and came up with Cntl-Shift-P, but that did nothing.
I am starting to get to the point where my head hurts, which I know is when to put this down. But for anyone who is more advanced than me, (which is a lot of people lol) is it just a matter of practicing the same exercises/assignments over and over again to get this? Because again, I feel like I am only accomplishing any thing all because I know how to copy and paste. I know this is not supposed to be easy, I mean if it was, I don’t think lots of people could make good money doing this. But… idk, is this something anyone can do? Or…idk. I am just looking for encouragement I guess.
