"Stop worrying if you can get something done. Instead, break your problem down into many small problems. And choose just one to tackle." - Pieter Levels' MAKE book

Quote 2

"Try to build your idea with HTML and CSS and JavaScript and see how far you get. Just Google every single thing you don't know. Start with "how to make a HTML page" Then "how to make text colored in HTML". Then “how to make a button in HTML”."
