kamen566124dYou haven't really told him the basics then.
craig939393256124dIs your friend a toddler? 1 year.
devJs86023dTo feel better, send him this:
Provide the dude with list of quality guides/tutorials/books/whatever so he can progress faster
Tell him to join dev communities over the discord and slack, dev.to is also non toxic and noob friendly place, make it easier for him
Demolishun1049223dDo we really need devs that don't know how to search out and find answers on their own? Do we anyone in any professional field that doesn't do this? Spoon feeding people isn't helping them.
devJs86023d@Demolishun well I agree with you but remembered something from times I was noob which is kinda impossible situation nowadays
I could search better than most of my peers in highschool, same on college, I even showed few tricks to my friends on how to get better results etc.
That is all good until you have to remember name of something that exists but can't. You know you read it somewhere but never used it before, so you just want to see example from the documentation. You try to search something but fail all the time.
If you are part of community on discord or slack you can just ask there and find out that you were trying to find someting called 'currying'.
Not knowing the names of things like that was my pain point when I was total noob 20y ago without someone who I could just ask as none of my friends (including online ones) weren't into programming at all.
Yeah also had 56k internet connection and web 2.0 was in its infancy so not much blogs and tutorials existed.
