Coding/software engineering

Hi. Has anybody done the full stack engineer career pathway on codecademy? i’m thinking of doing it but it seems like it mainly covers stuff like web development and interface, but not software or software systems etc.

It’s a pitty codecademy doesn’t have a “Software engineer” career pathway

There is a computer science pathway. And yes it’s important to note computer science is very much not software engineering, but a lot of software engineers happen to be computer science majors (a lot of the foundational bits of computer science happen to be very useful for software engineering). So I would look into that.

There’s also free courses online you can take. Computer architecture ones, compilers, operating systems, databases, etc. Look at strong university programs’ youtube (mit, carnegie mellon, umass, stanford). You can often find a syllabus and exercise problems to shadow along with the course.
