I’ve been doing FCC since last year and I finished the intermediate algorithms a month or two ago. I’d like to marketable for jobs within a year.
Recently I decided I wanted a more solid understanding of the basic topics covered in FCC’s front-end section.
My current short-term goal is to get away from codepen and to learn to code in a proper development environment. About a month ago I started using Brackets and I’m about finished with Shay Howe’s material on HTML and CSS (which I highly recommend).
After that, I’m thinking about reading through Shay’s sections on animations and responsive web design in his advanced HTML and CSS tutorial, then finding a good course to start learning git and github.
Then, I’d like to apply what I’ve learned by re-building my personal portfolio with what I’ve learned and putting it on github. I want the quality to be something worth showing to potential job recruiters.
On top of this, I have been and plan on doing some algorithms on codewars everyday.
What do you think of my plan? Do you recommend changing something?
I considered just restarting with P1xt’s guide, but it really bothered me that 1) I didn’t know how to use the basic tools web developers use and 2) I want to finish the front-end cert since I’m about done with it. So, I made dealing with the last two things my current goal.
Thanks for any help!
