Started freeCodeCamp a week ago and sailing along…but a bunch of tangential, long-term questions have come up since. Would appreciate any and all answers as well as any other advice you might have for someone new:
How would you go about landing a job from just starting out with freeCodeCamp curriculum? I’m graduating undergrad next May 2019 so preferably I’d be able to work somewhere full-time shortly thereafter. My plan is to go through freeCodeCamp, start building projects/portfolio, and supplement with a bootcamp if I still am a long ways off as graduation nears.
When do companies hire for developers typically? I’m assuming larger places are within a fixed time period while startups are year-round on a need basis. Do front-end and back-end jobs have vastly disparate hiring cycles?
How complementary is design (UI or UX) to front-end developing work? Haven’t given back-end that much thought and prefer subjective creativity over objective data crunching – would love to learn design as well at some point and work that into my front-end career.
I’m thinking about coding even when not coding…so I think that’s a pretty good tell-tale sign this is something important to me.
