Dude… it’s possible to re-build Google. Hell yeah it’s possible! And, I submit to you that you need nothing more than a really cheap, really crappy computer.
Is there a site or course that can provide examples?
Maybe that’s your problem. I think you should think of something that YOU want to build… because it’s awesome and just start. All you need is a text editor and a terminal my friend. That is all.
HTML + CSS + JS + Database of your choice and you can build any thing you can dream.
I started out very much like you. Then, I started coding everyday. It will come fast.
