Could you please advise/comment on the web development certification strategy that I attempt to follow:
1-) Legacy Front End Development Certification from “freeCodeCamp” (Six blocks total of 1800hrs)
2-) Back-End Engineer from “Codecademy” (45 lesson , 4-month program)
I am a bit confused as to why the “Codecademy” back-end program doesn’t offer say PHP (or other)… as part of the back-end syllabus. Should I just simply add “PHP” to the list?
I passed the “freeCodeCamp” back-end program as it is Py based.
My original plan was to just learn Drupal but soon I realized that I need to “understand” web dev down to the foundation level. ( I am a practicing Structural Engineer…that’s probably why)
Your comments/suggestiongs would be appreciated.
Really, I’d just pick something and start. You can always change later if the course you picked isn’t working for you.
The 300 hour per certification estimate is a very rough estimate, so I wouldn’t get too hung up on it.
Indeed, I was under the impression that freeCodeCamp’s back-end covers Py.
Thanx for the clarification and I think I will stick to the freeCodeCamp’s back-end curriculum. So far, I have enjoyed what I have complete it very much!
HI @efgarro !
Welcome to the forum!
I think either program is fine.
You asked this question in a FCC forum so naturally people are going to push for that more.
But I personally think the real end goal is to build projects outside of a course.
You learn a lot by being able to build stuff and deploy it.
Whether you learn from FCC, codecademy, udemy, youtube, etc make sure to apply that knowledge and build some awesome projects outside of a course.
Thanx for your comments. Looking forward to completing the program @fCC.
