Getting stuck after learning basics of front-end development is frustrating, and often met with vague, confusing advice.
- "Go with either React or Angular... that's what all the employers are looking for."
- "Definitely learn Sass, but make sure you don't write bad Sass ;)"
This type of advice assumes something. Something about what you need to learn and where you want to go.
It also assumes your HTML and CSS skills are sharp. But are they?
Could you translate a design into succinct, maintainable HTML and CSS?
Could you take things one step further and start leveraging Sass, or integrate your code into a CMS, like WordPress?
What if you could sharpen the skills you already have, and create functional, interactive websites?
Not just static pages, but dynamic, functional, powerful websites.
