I came into CodeCademy with a pretty good amount of knowledge of front-end development, as my current day-job (SEO Specialist) involves a lot of JS, HTML/CSS, etc.
I started the Pro Web Development Career Path, and the first six-seven or so sections (out of 14) have been essentially review after working through it for a few weeks. I am unsure on if I’m simply experiencing impostor syndrome at the moment about my lack of abilities, but I’m questioning if all the material (through the rest of the course) is “enough” for me to advance into a career in development if I master all the rest (React, Node, SQL, etc are coming up).
Is this course meant to just give a beginner the basics, or (if I master these skills) will I be essentially job ready?
I guess the biggest concern for me is that I’m starting an Informatics program (the final two years of coursework for a web/software development) at my university in Winter of 2021. If I master the 14 sections of the Web Dev career section, will I be job ready at that time, and not need to finish school, or is it simply meant to give a brief overview?
Let me know what you think!
