HI all, thanks for the compliments
After a month working as front-end web developer, I found that my strongest point is in web design, so I decided to stay as front-end web developer not full-stack or back-end.
I decided to focus on front-end skill like PSD to Bootstrap to Wordpress. I knew it is opposite with the trend and hype of JavaScript and its framework. I don’t want to be another Jack-of-all-trade in programming world, so I focus on that skill as it has huge demand too.
with many programming languages and frameworks, I think many beginners in web development will feel the same thing as I feel, loosing focus.

In my opinion, if you have good eye on design you can choose to be UX designer, or front-end web developer, front-end also has many sub skill like angular/react for mobile development and if you have good analytical thinking skill you should choose Data Scientist or Full-stack.
Please FCC make pre-screening-test so many students will know their strongest/weakness points, and they don’t just follow the hype and trend.

Thank you FCC


Very inspirational! Thanks for your story.

Congrats! just started learning here a couple of days ago and your story has really motivated me, salam dari Jakarta! :smile:

Keep trying. I know there are companies about degrees, but there is just as many about showing you have experience. My husband works in the tech field already and there are so many graduates that come out with no real appliable knowledge. Good Luck!
