How To Get Help When You Are Stuck

When you get stuck, remember: Read-Search-Ask.

  1. Read the documentation or error
  2. Search Google
  3. Ask your friends for help

This is the most time-efficient way to handle being stuck, and it’s the most respectful of other people’s time, too.

Most of the time, you’ll solve your problem after just one or two steps of this algorithm.
