Just as an amusing side-note, I'd like to mention how much of a difference it makes to have a small code base when working on a new project. I know that since I don't actually have a whole lot that I've accomplished so far, there's not really a huge difference that's going to be made. But I think that most of the benefit that I've gotten so far is mental. It takes a lot of strain off of my thought process to know that there are a few less things that I'm going to have to look up. The things that I've just finished doing that I've already forgotten how to do, I can just go back to some of my previous code and see how I did it the first time. Even for things that I do have to look up, I'm much more familiar with the instructional site than I was the last time. This means that I'm doing a lot less reading and a lot less looking at things that are not relevant to what I want. Hopefully, with a bit more work to my projects I will have a very solid code base to proceed into different directions in the future.
