When to ask for help?

As a beginner programmer, how do you know when it's time to ask for help? I am a beginner in JavaScript programming, and sometimes it takes me a lot more time to solve a problem if I find it difficult. If I am not able to solve the problem, I don't move to the next one and I feel like I am learning slowly because of this. As it now some questions are so difficult that sometimes it could take me a day before I could figure out the answer, sometimes even more. Should I continue to work on the problem until I get it right or should I ask for help if I am finding it too difficult?

When? When you have tried (not before), and still unable to solve the problem. When it comes to quizzes in the lessons here, always try to review the relevant chapter, and also consult the lesson comments. And one more thing, do not be afraid to ask, this forum has a friendly community, as far as I can say. Though it is worthed to mind the rules when asking questions, so to avoid misunderstanding. Like this, for one ... 👇 https://www.sololearn.com/Discuss/333866/?ref=app


This means you are in the right way 😊. Although it's tough at first 😥, But trust me after you see the results📈 you will realize that your effort wasn't for nothing👍. And as Ipang says do not be shy😳 to ask help when needed.


Learning slowly is not bad, but learn things wrong. It's okay to solve a problem slowly, after all you solved it. If you find that you can't solve a problem. You're welcome to ask providing your attempt. Feel free to ask. We're willing to answer.


‎يوسف سعد‎ Thank you so much. It's really tough but it's what I am passionate about. I don't have anything else I think of doing with my life unless programming so I really want to be good at it. I will heed to your advice. Thank you.


The comments really helped. Thank you all very much.


When you think that solving a problem yourself is taking way too much time.


When ever you feeling any problems


When you are having a problem


Of course you must attempt any problem yourself first before asking.
