I keep seeing a trend of forum posts all over the place by people who face a similar question/problem to what I faced not long ago:
Ok, I have learned x or y language, now how do I ACTUALLY start working with it, or making real-world applications and websites??? Luckily, we here at FCC already have the FCC curriculum projects which puts us ahead of a lot of other newbies… However, some people seem to view those projects as “school projects” and can still be lost even after doing them.
Look no further. In this YouTube video, I explain to you a simple, easy, and fun way to solve this problem: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BwXfbUCwxQk
After following the steps in this video, and making a simple portfolio for yourself on a website or GitHub, you will be ready to apply for jobs if you desire.
In addition, I made another YouTube video which pretty much goes hand-in-hand with this one where I explain how to absolutely maximize your learning of code and programming online and by various methods. In it, you will learn how to get the best bang for your buck and time investment, as well as how to find the best, most reputable online courses and instructors to learn from. That video is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QPQLo0V3rIQ
Please note that I have spent over 1,000-2,000 HOURS of self-study and online course learning, combined with freeCodeCamp at this point and I have learned a ton and received so much help. I am making these videos in this YT channel to give back some to the community. There is no agenda here or product I am trying to sell. As long as it helps someone, I am happy.
