I’ve seen so many great posts by people who literally started coding less than a year ago and are already working as Front End Developers. I’ve been building websites since 2002, more as a designer with HTML and CSS, also using Wordpress and other cms’. I’ve recently started going through courses to make me a qualified front end developer; however I feel a bit discouraged that i’m about 5 months into it, but still haven’t been able to make the quick progress that others seem to make. I’m a mom with 2 kids, so i struggle to get the time to go through the courses quickly. I’ve been applying for jobs with the skills that I have, and unlike others who have gotten jobs just after months of learning on FCC, I’ve gotten a couple of "we’re sorry " letters and silence from the rest.
Any encouragement would be really helpful. I have the following skills
HTML/ CSS / Photoshop / Designing in Photoshop - Expert
Wordpress - Expert User, Beginner Theme / Plugin Developer
Drupal - Expert User, Beginner Theme / Plugin Developer
DNN - Expert User, Intermediate Theme Developer
PHP - Beginner
