I have acquired a solid understanding of the basics of these four technologies. I have completed all of these courses multiple times and took notes to really understand why and how to implement each technology appropriately.
There is one course in particular that I highly recommend to anyone wanting to learn web development. The Web Developer Bootcamp by Colt Steele is the most comprehensive course that can take you from beginner to having the skills to land a front-end developer job.
Though I learned a lot of fundamental knowledge through these tutorials, the majority of my understanding came through building many different personal projects utilizing each of these technologies for practice.
I am very intrigued by this language and I want to master it completely. I can see the power it has and the possibilities, so I will only be learning and building projects that help me understand it completely.
Youtube has also been a very powerful resource for strengthening my understanding of any subject I am working on. I plan on working in the web development industry by the end of 2018.
Other skills I have also learned in the process are Git and Github, the basics of SASS, Command line, Bootstrap and WordPress, which is what this site was created with.
As of March 2019, I landed a webmaster position at a local digital marketing agency and I create and customize WordPress websites for businesses every day. So learning these skills has ultimately paid off and I am now working as a web developer. I wanted to update to show everyone that it is possible to make it as a self-taught web developer with no degree. Stay persistent and never stop learning.
