Hey there folks,
I am still chugging along on here but I wanted to post this real quick to get some feed back. I have been pretty busy the past two weeks so I have had more time to think than code(still getting an hour in a day at least). So the easiest way I can think to ask this question is by saying I basically have 5 udemy courses, all of fcc, and a udacity nano degree that I want to do, as well as various youtube videos just to toss in to learn some more stuff.
I wanted to get through the first 2 fcc certifications before I hopped on some of the udemy courses like the web dev bootcamp for some more structured teaching, but I am getting the feeling if I knew more I could make better products. With that said how did some of you guys out there tackle it? I just want to know enough to make my portfolio actually decent. I am only on survey form and have already learned a bunch. am I limiting myself by only working the projects?
I want to make the jump to webdev in the next 2 years. I currently have a decent job that doesn’t suck as bad as my last job and I will top out in 3 years making around 62k a year, the down side is the work is really boring and after the corona virus clears up I am likely to spend 1/3-1/2 of the year at sea(huge downside to my job). At sea I will not be able to anything coding that require internet, and I will likely have to go at the beginning of next summer so I am trying to make the most of the time the corona virus has given me. I was supposed to be gone now by thanks to the virus I basically got 5 extra months at home this year. Maybe this post is a bit all over the place but I could really use some guidance, I really want to get to a place where I am home for my family, making decent money besides stuck away from home or in a cubical being glorified button pusher with engaging work.
