I was just wanted to get a little bit of advice…
I guess my question is should I continue on my JS & Algorithms /ES6 path (currently on 17/29) until it all comes together or should I take a detour?
I’m not sure if this all makes any sense!
Many thanks guys!!!
Big up FreeCodeCamp!
Also don’t feel like you have to relearn everyhting in a new course.
If a video is covering something so simple as what is var if you don’t need a refresher than feel free to scrub through and only take what you need
Thank you so much for your quick reply!
Wow, front-end libraries is a long way down from where I am haha.
Thanks for the info!
Oh Scrimba’s definitely where I’m heading to now. It does seem like a very practical/fun course.
Sound advice, many thanks!
With you, brilliant!! Cheers dude, on it!
Not really. It doesn’t come together in basic JS, because JS is first and foremost a programing language and FCC basically uses it as an introduction to coding.
Personally, I would think completing it is still decent though.
Now with that out of the way - do you need to finish the FCC-JS? Ofcourse not. If you find another program that interests you and that seems more to your liking, go ahead. If it is on a beginner-level and covers the basics, you should learn the same thing as would be covered here.
Obviously I cannot say for sure. Maybe the FCC-JS covers things the other program doesn’t mention? Who knows… anyway, at the end of the day, you won’t miss anything that would ruin your career - worst case you gotta look into the documentation.
Plus, ofcourse making complete working apps / programs offers it’s own perks for motivation. So if you want to go for that - no need to fear missing out on anything
To be fair, basic DOM manipulation isn’t really done in production code nowadays…
Thanks so much for the advice! Wow it has made me a bit more confused now.
My plan was/is to get into frontend web development. I did a couple of html modules in uni back in 96 and really enjoyed it, forgot about it until 20 years later (after questioning what do I actually like doing).
A couple of my web developer friends have suggested looking at frameworks such as React etc but like how I developed my knowledge of CSS (friends suggested I use Bootstrap) I wanted to explore the core language before looking into frameworks.
I found this all very very helpful to write how I’m feeling about it all.
Ultimately I think I’m going to keep going module by module as I have done from the beginning rather than divert. I actually enjoy JS even though I’m finding some parts quite tricky.
Many thanks guys, you’ve been a big help!!
