So many languages to learn, so many paths to take so where does one brand new to all this begin? I’m Aimee a Front-End Developer, I started my first web developer job in 2016 as a junior web developer. I only really knew HTML, CSS and a tiny bit of jQuery. As a junior there is so much to learn and it can all be a bit overwhelming, but don’t give up, keep motivated and keep going. I’m going to show you some paths you can take.
You can become a Front-End Developer, Back-End Developer or a Full Stack Developer These are just three roles.
If you want to be a Front End Developer, like me, I would start by learning HTML and CSS they are both very important for building websites. So if you don’t already know HTML stands for Hypertext Markup Language and CSS stands for Cascading style sheets. With both of these you can build static websites. You can think of HTML as a cake, a plain cake with nothing on it, the structure then you can add some CSS which is like decoration, so your cake becomes pretty and nice looking.
Also set yourself up a Github account and learn the basics of git, I’ll talk about that in another blog but it’s quiet easy to learn. It’s just a version control for your code so if you make a mistake you can go back to an older version.
Another good site is Netlify, you can host websites on there for free if they are static websites.
Which brings me onto a Full Stack Developer, this is basically a front-end developer and a back-end developer, having knowledge of both client-side and server-side. So it all depends on your preference and what you are interested in, as for me I like the front-end I like making designs come to life.
So I hope this has been helpful, below is a list of resources that I find great for learning and which I also use.
