re: This is awesome phrase rocket science with noodles I feel like will quote it a lot. Back to your question(s). What do you want to achieve? ...
 

🤣 The following phrase is MIT.

rocket science with noodles

  • Learn to program in general?

When I think about in general, it almost seems like programming with any language. I like NodeJS because it's at a point where it can be used to build almost anything with it. So yes I want to learn programming in general specifically with Node.

  • Learn how to accomplish some specific project (some idea of yours)?

I have always tried to build a complete project and I still do that daily just because its fun.

  • Git 🤪into open-source? (Why?)

You know how when you watch movie credits, you see a lot of names that no one really reads. I think it's cool to be on the credits of a project. No one will see it and no one has to except for my two friends or my kids in the future. ("Look look that's meee!!!") But seriously, open-source is where challenges are at the moment.

  • Get a job in the field?

I have taught myself frontend code and I would love a job in that field as I learn backend. I think I am way more comfortable in the frontend right now (When working for $$$). I want the backend to be a hobby.


So what do I want to achieve?
I ultimately want to just be a JavaScript Developer (frontend or backend or... anyend). I think there is a ton of projects that are being built now and in the future that will require some really complex code in simple lines. I want to code and make enough to eat and sleep. I don't want to climb ladders or hope for promotions.

Thanks for the feedback!

This is achievable. Look for good-first-issue tag on the github, especially those which provide mentoring
