I have CS background but been out of the loop (especially hands on coding) for about 5 to 6 years. I can’t manage a 12 hr shift dead end tech support job which includes a long commute along with learning to the code at the same time which is why I have decided to solely pursue learning for the next 3 months . I have funds which can sustain me for about 4 months. I am working on Colt steele’s web dev bootcamp course after which I plan to deep dive into the FCC front end curriculum. My biggest worry is choosing the wrong track and not being able to land a junior web developer job after 3 months of full time study. My peers who are experienced web developers swear by PHP and wordpress . I feel by learning php now I will be competing with those who are far more experienced than me and thus narrowing my chances of landing a job at the earliest.
Been a long time lurker at the getting a dev jobs section on fcc, I still can’t find posts relating to the salary campers are offered once they land jobs after completing the front end certificate path. All I want to know what is the minimum salary one can expect after acquiring skills from fcc / colt steele web dev course which are primarily based on self studying rather instructor - led courses.
I can’t really make up my mind on how to go forward with this . Given the limited resources I have , I am desperate for guidance.
