Recently I enrolled in frontend dev. in-class course (booked my seat by prepayment) that starts on coming May. Now as start day approaches i feel some anxiety about was is it right time to learn this? You may ask that I was supposed to think about earlier before enrollment. Advertisement as “limited seats available and good teachers” did its job well. To enroll 3 things are sufficient as they persuaded: basic knowledge of computer, average speed in typing and knowing of English is advantage as most codes and tags are English. Typing and English are not a problem. I got concerned what does “basic knowledge of computer” mean? Well I know how to use Microsoft Office like word, excel etc. I can differ computer from TV ))), can install software and games that is it.
I am some kind of 3d artist using in my projects 3d studio max, vray and Photoshop for correction of rendered picture. But all these at a user level and do not have any idea about how it works in fact.
Since I’m kind of artist by nature, and not good in math, electronics even afraid of, although I could it start learning at my 43 (here I didn’t raise question about ageism cause here got many positive answers, so I feel ok). Back to my questions: what kind of skills, subjects, knowledge as well as experience needed to start learning web developer/frontend course? And in order to become more or less average web developer how much time needed let’s say for average person? Give your honest opinions and suggestions. Thank you in advance.
