I've been working on coding for a little bit and I feel like I have a basic understanding of how the web works, what certain technologies/frameworks do, etc. I was starting to feel good about it!
Then my ego was completely deflated when I started using Stack Overflow, and I've been getting crushed by down votes left and right, leaving me to question just how far I've come along. Now I'm down to 13 points after a year of trying my best to grasp this field!
This won't stop me from continuing to try and learn, but honestly I'm fearful to post anymore questions until I'm ready. I'd be lying if I said that I was doing this for anything other than trying to develop a future career. I'm currently working on building my portfolio and I THINK that Stack Overflow is one of the places that employers will look to see how much knowledge I have.
Even if I develop impressive projects, will a lack of points from Stack Overflow ruin my ability to obtain these positions?
