“Read the documentation.”

“Everything builds on the foundation.”

“Ask questions even if you think you’ve got it!”

“Take advantage of all the resources available to you.”

“This is all about cooperative and collaborative learning.”

“Accept the confusion. It’s all part of the process.”

“Break everything! Break your code! It’s a great way to learn how things work and how to fix stuff. Don’t be afraid to break things.”
