Reading Other People's Codes/github Open Repo Projects

8

Hi all so lately since late Febuary I developed the habit of cloning GitHub repos and studying them honestly speaking it was war cause I was lost, it was as if I am in the middle of the ocean i don't even know where to start. First I notice that I was exposed to a variety of idioms(methods,variables and globals variables) in the language the codes was written(PHP) Thirdly I notice that my learning rate sky rocketed in the new programming language I am learning(PHP) Fourthly I noticed that I always wanted to write cleaner codes like the once I read And lastly I am not scared reading codes that am not familiar with all I have to do is open documentation down on my browser Sincerely speaking I thought I knew JavaScript pretty well but the moment I opened react js source code I was blown away by the way the people who wrote the code writes codes in fact they write in another level beyond what I imagined and I was humbled because I found out that there were many things in JavaScript that I don't even know existed. I found out that most of the tutorial projects u see on YouTube are easy projects and if you want something challenging or if you are working on a project and you hit a stumbling block and you have searched on YouTube and you haven't seen any working tutorial about it that solved that problem just visit GitHub and search for it I am very sure you will see a projectssss of other people who have implemented it or solved that same problem in their project and all you have to do is clone it and study it and then implement it in your own code chikina. So I want use this opportunity to ask other programmers here on naijaworld to write about their opinion about reading other people's code and how it affected their programming journey and skill set and also tips on how to study other people's code better I hope you all contribute to this thread and the mod should pls push this post to front page I expecting your comments gracias
