Hi STMers … just joined a few days ago and have been totally hooked by all the amazing information and stories in here. Had me up till 5am on the first day. Thanks to everyone who have been openly sharing their experience and knowledge, you guys are really tops. I’ve been completely blown away by the depth and detail which you’ve all generously shared what you know, stuff that must have taken you a long time and lots of money to learn/test.
Can’t wait to get started at the moment, and am torn between continuing to read more, or to just dive in and learn on the fly. As many of you have said … keep it simple, test like crazy, don’t get paralyzed by overanalyzing (at least at the start) … so i may just take that leap. Look forward to participating more in here and hopefully being able to contribute back to the community.
Welcome to the STM community! Haha that is awesome you were up to 5am going through it al, I know what it feels like!
Welcome, and glad you’re finding everything helpful!
I’m looking forward to hearing how you get on! Definitely start a Follow-Along when you get a chance – they’re a superb way to learn.
haha nice! I can feel the excitement bursting out of you!
It’s a toss up. Always continue to learn, but also take action. You have to find the balance between constant reading and learning vs reckless action.
Overall though, taking action yields the most results. (obviously)
Welcome to STM mate!
You look very motivated , so keep up the momentum.
Read the basics and start a follow-along so everyone can help you with suggestions.
Cheers guys. Yes, will definitely do a follow along, they’re such a great idea for learning (and sharing). Only read one in here so far. Saving the best for last and trying to get the other fundamentals out of the way first.
Fundamentals first, then start reading the goodies, then get TESTING. Nothing will be real world testing
