Skills/learning roadmap

Greetings Dev Community.

I am currently enrolled in an introductory web development course and would like to further my studies with front end language and skills.
I learn best in classroom environments vs online study, which reflects my choices for current and future learning pursuits.

So far I've learned the following:

  • fundamentals of html5
  • fundamentals of css + flex-box

I've been exploring learning opportunities to pursue once I complete this introductory course, while I continue practicing my html + css skills

Some ideas I've been looking into are:

Pursue a two week javascript course.
Then
Pursue front end development bootcamp.

OR

Pursue front end development bootcamp in January.

I know many of you either share similar or different journeys on how you've
became developers. I would like to hear your insights on your learning journey. As a beginner to where you are today.

  • Did you pursue bootcamp? if so, how did you prepare yourself.
  • Did you work on the fundamentals of html+css and javascript before immersing yourself fully into a bootcamp/ developer program.
  • Are there certain developer tools you felt were easy to learn yourself?

Thank you,

LJTea

Most of the bootcamps I know emphasize on frameworks like Vue, React... and that's cool! The problem is that, if you learn how a frontend framework without knowing JS in depth, you will be blocked at facing more complicated problems.

Take your time to learn Javascript, there's no rush!

Thank you Elena,

I needed to hear this and I appreciate your insight. I feel JS will be the next step to consider instead of taking a deep dive into bootcamp.

I have never pursued a bootcamp but, I worked on C and C++ language advanced use and now I'm able to create wathever I want from any language because the logic remain the same most of the time. If you know one language, you can use others easily. The only difference is the typography 🤷‍♂️
I deeply think the best way to learn is only from ourself, maybe you should try to create a simple project first 😉
Follow an online course or bootcamp can be useful to learn the best practice, it's not a bad idea 💡
The online courses I have done so far were about latest frontend frameworks, just to be updated with the best practices (Angular, Vue).

Thank you Steeve.
I definitely agree it becomes easy to pick up similar languages when you really develop one or few 😂
