Search - "plateaux"
When learning to code, at what points did you experience plateaus? Could you describe what made you get stuck? And how did you break through those plateaus? Any books/resources/concepts that helped make things click?
I am currently stuck on a problem that requires me to create a tree structure the branches of which are equal to the sum of certain values contained within the leaves, and the root's value is the sum of those branch values. I have no idea how to represent that data in a way that is accessible and flexible. Associative arrays within arrays? Objects? But how can objects be represented in a hierarchical way (i.e. branches are parents of leaves, but are the same type of object). So yeah, I am in no man's land with that problem at the moment and don't even know what to search for/study. I am learning about data structures, because that sounds like it might get me closer to an answer.
What are you struggling with at the moment, and how did you break through your previous plateaus?6
