I finally learned how to build the “Chore Door” project. How close am I to becoming a front end developer considering my progress?
Difficult to say, if you completed the project by only looking at the description and completed the project on your own, you are much further along then someone who had to study the hints at each step
From what i hear, some people are capable to land a junior level job between 6 months to a year, but i think in most cases somewhere between a year and two years is more realistic.
The truth is that there is a shortcut in gaining experience. I also think you need to learn at least one front-end framework (vuejs, reactJS, angular).
Maybe not the answer you want to hear.
Anyway, persistence is important. Don’t give up. Good luck!
