I am about to star the JS portion of FCC, so I am still in the beginning, but I have been thinking about my short and long term goals. I want to finish FCC and get the front-end developer certificate, and then I was thinking about my next step after that. I do not think I will be 100% job ready after I finish FCC (who knows, maybe I feel), so I am pretty sure I will want more practice/curriculum after I finish the front end portion here. This is a few months down the line, obviously, but I was thinking about trying out a boot camp or maybe some other online coruse, like Udacity, for a nanodegree.
I am doing some research on boot camps right now just to get some general information. From what I understand, they are extremely fast paced and intensive. Which is kind of turning me away from them. I really hate working under extreme pressure like that and I honestly don’t think I would be able to pull through a full 8 hours or more of intensive learning. Being said, the Udacity course is online, and I would rather maybe enroll in some sort of in-person course, since I have always loved the educational environment and think it would be a good change from the online FCC, it would also allow me to make some connections and network - neither of which I have done AT ALL since I graduated in 2016 with a degree in sociology.
Anyway - I am wondering if there are any slow-paced boot camps or other educational institutions I can check out regarding front-end stuff. I notice boot camps are about 3 - 6 months long. I wouldn’t mind enrolling in something that is a year long or so.
Just looking for suggestions and advice.
Or maybe I can hear from some of you who have done boot camps or supplemental educations after FCC. What was your experience like? I am not going to lie, I am not the fastest learner, and right now I try to put in about an hour or 2 a day on FCC - I know this is a small amount compared to some people who put in 8 hours a day, but I imagine once I really start to grasp the concepts better, I will spend more time doing it because it will be more enjoyable.
Sorry for the long post.
TD;DR - Are there are any slow-paced boot camps or other educational institutions I can check out regarding front-end stuff? Something not as face-paced as normal boot camps
