I'm still working through the Velo course (15%), but so far so good. The syntax and coding structure is very similar to Python and it's nice to be able to 'fly' through some of the earlier syllabus.
Now I'm a coder (haha) I can at least get a quick grasp of the concepts.
However, as I progress through the course I think it's going to be very difficult to start applying this JavaScipt code within Wix. There are lots of practical projects that actually take you into Wix, but I'll definitely have to delve deeper into the potential of the code to achieve what I want.
It's also very basic for me as the first few modules are on building things in the visual editor. I'm already a wiz at this.
Similar to Python, there is a huge step from coding on-platform (in this case Codecademy) to off-platform and a real site. I need to keep this in mind throughout the whole course.
We'll see how the rest of the course unfolds and I'll report back.
