I’m currently going through a career change and I would like to know what essential things I need to learn in order to get into this industry.
Is that right?
Would that be enough for my portfolio to start applying for entry level jobs?
You can certainly apply whenever you feel ready.
Makes sense. And with the new curriculum of FCC on the way, I’ll feel more ready because those would be Herculean projects of different difficulty.
Either React, Angular or Vue
Restful API (you don’t need to know how to build an API, but you ought to know how to work with one)
I recommend building a portfolio. Build some projects that look as real as possible, if you have to build an API for some project then do it, just learn Node.js or whatever backend language is in high demand in your area.
I’ve been linking to my answer in this thread every time this question gets asked: How do you know when you are ready to apply to jobs?
