Hi, I have been a backend developer working with java sprint boot and nodejs express techstack for quite a while.
I want to make a transition to frontend development so as to be a fullstack developer.
Should I jump into the above mentioned projects?
I think it would be a smart move to go for one major framework like Vue or React sooner or later then. So you could use this to get a good overview and then decided with what to go on. Nuxt(Vue) works well with express so this might be a good starting point!
Also it would be a big transition from a mindset perspective. As a backend developer, we think about data, persistence, concurrency, scalability. Etc.
I guess frontend development needs a mindset shift and some focus areas to think about
Yeah it would be a pretty big shift. Not mentioned in the article is all the things like learning CSS, learning accessibility, and learning to build in an environment where there are many unknown variables that you have no control over (screen-size, device type, browser, input method, etc.)
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
