Yeah, we've all been there.
Lost in the ever-expanding world of front-end web tech, panicked because we need to meet a deadline, we are met with a maze of contradictory advice, helpful people who don't have enough time, or the dreaded "RTFM noob lol".

Stacking programming skills will help you tear through your todo list faster.
Even more important is the skill of figuring out what needs to be done, so you can stop wasting time on things that don't matter.
Jeffrey has been programming for eight years, mostly doing web development.
He's been teaching even longer -- before starting his tech career, he tutored Math, Chemistry, and Physics.
When he's not knee-deep in code he's reading, working out, or writing fantasy novels.
We talk over Zoom about what you've been struggling with and what you want to accomplish. Sometimes this involves screen-sharing your code.
During the call, I'll do whatever I can to make your struggles go away and help you meet your goals.
Usually the session will end with us co-creating a plan for what you're going to do until our next meeting.
Don't worry, there will still be time for that in between sessions.

But at least you won't be alone!
