When I first took up cycling there was a particular long, steep hill I used to practice on, and it was so hard for me – I remember getting off half way up and walking the remainder! I asked one of the team at my local bike shop about it, and his response really stuck with me: “it doesn’t get much easier, but you do get faster.”
Today is another challenge day, and hopefully these challenges are getting a little easier to follow over time. I say “easier to follow” rather than just “easier” because it’s an important distinction – I don’t expect you’ll ever find these challenges easy but you will at least feel more able to tackle them. As the bike shop person said: it doesn’t get much easier, but you do get faster.
Today you should work through the wrap up chapter for project 18, complete its review, then work through all three of its challenges.
Extra credit: If you have the time and would like to take your debugging skills further, try watching my video How to Debug Like a Pro. It was delivered at Appdevcon in Amsterdam, in 2018, but the tips you’ll find there will help take your debugging skills further.
That’s another project finished, and a useful one too – make sure and tell others about your continued progress!
