Completely new, Need advice on where to start

I am a complete beginner with only some experience in AP CSA and I created a block coding game. I’ve never used this website. I’ve recently found a passion to pursue CS at a UC but I have zero experience. I want to build my college application and gain as many coding skills as possible, but I’m worried it is too late to start since I am a junior.

I’m just super lost on where to start. I’m really eager to learn but I need some advice on how to begin and what types of projects I should work on first.

There are tons of career paths in IT world.

Do check jobs in stackoverflow, linkedin jobs or other popular websites in your country.

I’ve done below to become a front end + mobile developer

  • HTML, CSS, JS ( FCC + YT )

  • Building all the projects ( Frontend mentor website )

  • Learn React ( build projects, refer YT for ideas )

  • Learn React Native ( build projects, refer YT for ideas ) optional

Apply for job / internship


You’ve come to the right place to learn!
I’d recommend starting a the top of the FCC Curriculum with the Responsive Web Design course and work your way through the curriculum in order.

Here’s my advice, plus some advice from others: It’s never too late to start.
I’m graduating college this month with a degree in Psychology. I’ve only realized this semester that my passion is actually CS. Do I know what I’m doing? No. Am I trying anyways? Absolutely. We’re kinda in the same boat here. I’m trying, though, and you should too!
I started at the beginning of the modules (Responsive Web Design) a few days ago and I’ve already finished the first two small tutorial projects and learned A TON. This is a wonderful place to learn, and we’re all here with you! Don’t give up, take breaks when you get frustrated, you’ve got this! :slight_smile:
