Thanks for the post, some great info here. The "You don't need to know everything" part was a great reminder to me even having done JS work for 6+ years now.
Yeah totally -- I remember Googling things like "image upload React Django" back in the day, but really I needed to handle that processing separately on both ends! I'm so pro-API back-end w/ totally disconnected front-end at this point for beginners for similar reasoning. Test both separately!
I also use the JAM-stack for a lot of my personal apps, so no real back-ends, and I love it.
