Hi everyone, my name is Ryan and this is my first post ever on this forum. Just here for some advice. Hopefully you guys can help me. Hello everyone by the way
Ive been learning python pretty extensively over the past few months on codecademy. Ive gone from knowing essentially nothing to something. Very satisfied with my progress so far up to this point.
After doing a lot of reading and research on what IT pathway to go down , ive realized that front end web developement is the right choice for me. Learning python has given me a good idea on what coding is like and i would like to now focus on exclusively learning front end web dev for my future. I am a very visual person which is why i am leaning down the frontend path as opposed to backend where logics and problem solving skills are much more heavily focused there instead.
Upon seeing the full breakdown of what freecodecamp has to offer which is :
Responsive Web Design Certification (300 hours)
Front End Libraries Certification (300 hours)
Data Visualization Certification (300 hours)
APIs and Microservices Certification (300 hours)
Information Security and Quality Assurance Certification (300 hours)
Coding Interview Prep (Thousands of hours of challenges)
Everything above is the full breakdown to aquire the skills needed to become a full stack dev. What if i only want to be a front end dev? Which course should i take above? Looking for advice on this as each course is 300+ hours to complete so i need to make sure i only focus on what i need to be focusing on. Or do most people do all of this (1800+ hours) even if their goal is just to be a competent front end dev. I am pretty new with programming in general so of course this question could just be really dumb. Thats why i seek help from you guys on what to focus on. Looking for any advice on what course to work on if id like to be a front end dev (or do most people learn everything above regardless if their goal is to be a front end/ back end dev, etc). What should i do?
Thank you everyone so so much.
