Hello @danjobloch, welcome to freeCodeCamp! Its awesome you’ve already gone thru the first part of the curriculum and have branched out and learned other stuff
Its true that in this day and age finding some kind of “community” is hard, luckily there lots of ways to get in-touch with people going thru the same thing. FreeCodeCamp is as much a community of people helping each other out as it is a curriculum One of the main sources is this forum right here. You can ask for feedback, help, or try your hand at helping others out at the same time.
FreeCodeCamp also has an official Discord if you want more “live” interaction.
Beyond those realms, there are plenty of other resources built primarily by contributors, and just like the curriculum, everything is free. Such as the official youtube or the news publication.
I would recommend to continuing down the rest of the curriculum with the Front End Library Cert after finishing. (or at least getting thru most of the JS section)
The main reason being is you will have to revisit HTML/CSS/JS as this section leverages those 3 “pillars” of technology which make up the web. However how those 3 are wielded is where “modern” web development takes place.
I’d say, awesome welcome to web development!
None of that should stop you from continuing to more complex topics, if anything you might realize you do need to go back and review a few concepts. But I’d only take that approach to see how far you get. You might find it tough, struggle a bit and have to backtrack some, but thats ok
Just keep chugging a long and see where you get.
Good luck, keep building, keep learning!
