I am also in your situation currently. What I did is starting off with freecodecamp. Did their intro courses to HTML, CSS and vanilla js. Once I felt comfortable working with the three, I gradually started using vue.js as my frontend library, currently still trying to make all this work and improve my skills. Hats off to all frontend devs, I used to think it was all fun and games until I began writing frontend code. Lol.

Oh no, I definitely know it's not trivial.

I've done some amazing C++ template stuff, written JCAs, lead CICD strategies etc. I have technical chops.

Frontend is intimidating!

Extremely intimidating.
I'm a backend too.

Nice talking to you and all the best in your frontend learning path :)

Actually, I just gave FCC a quick go. It's pretty neat - thanks!
