My first concern as it often is when deciding what and why to learn something is: “How long will it take?”
Although it seems like it shouldn’t be one of the main reasons to do or not do something, with all the technologies and acronyms that you are hit with when trying to learn anything CS related I can’t help wondering how many hours I’m going to have to pour into something before realising that I would’ve been better doing something else.
Anyway a trusty Quora search on this topic suggested that a timescale of weeks to months could be enough to gain proficiency. I certainly hope so.
My aim is to use this blog as a journal of my progress from basics onwards and hopefully in time to some degree of proficiency. This is as much for myself as for anybody else but if this provides motivation for others in a similar situation then that would be great.
Right, time to get started…………..
