I’ll start off by saying I’ve been a lurker here for a while now but today that changes. You guys and gals have been instrumental in my current journey of becoming a professional developer. I’ve reached a dilemma though and so I’m coming to you asking for some help.
I’ve been following The Odin Project’s curriculum to (hopefully) prepare me to land a junior web development position. I’ve completed everything through the Web Development 101 course, so I’m now learning Ruby basics.
So I’m coming to you today to really make up my mind between two curriculums that I looked at when I first started this journey.
- Complete The Odin Project or
- Complete P1xt’s Guide
Now before you say I should do both or something like that, I plan on completing both and other resources as I continue to learn, even when I get a job. I’m asking you, especially experienced web developers, which curriculum should I prioritize? The goal is to have a solid grasp on fundamentals (computer science, library/framework-independent technologies) and to be a competent developer that can add value to an employer.
If you were in my shoes, what would you do? What are your opinions of the different guides? Thoughts, insights, suggestions?
P.S. Like I said I’m new to posting things online in general so feel free to call out my etiquette/formatting for posting here. I’m here to learn.
