what things have been helpful for you to 'level-up' your skills other than the online bootcamp?

also, what is your opinion of wordpress now that you are an engineer? do you want to develop themes / plugins? or stay away from the CMS development side?

and congrats on your journey


Hey Katherine!

Thank you so much! Well, post-bootcamp and pre-job, I would improve my skills by:

  1. building small projects and searching MDN for solutions to what I needed
  2. practicing algorithms on LeetCode and CodeWars
  3. taking tutorials

Now on the job, skills improvement is built-in :D

I still love Wordpress! I haven't had a chance to do any CMS development, but I love the platform - especially for it's ease of use for non-techies. CMS development is not currently on my career roadmap though.
