Hello everyone, I have been learning coding for almost 1 year and I started with Codeacademy’s computer science course and when I finished it I jumped in C# course and now I finished it. So here is the question I really loved C# and this is the reason why I switched to C# after I finished computer science path and now I don’t know where should I focus. I really liked Codeacademy’s practical courses but it has only ASP.Net course for C#. Any advice or suggestion?
I’m in the same boat as you, finished Computer Science career path and currently taking the C# course.
Take the ASP.NET course next, and after that, there’s a skill path you can take that utilizes both of them, “Build Web Apps With ASP.NET”. That’s the path I’m looking at for myself right now. A lot of companies are looking for .NET engineers!
I’m currently taking full stack engineer career path because it seems like a worthy long course.
I chose to take that also after Computer Science path (I’m 25% complete right now), but I chatted with an engineer at my company and he suggested the C# and .NET path if I wanted to transition roles. So I halted full stack to take C#. Full stack is fun though! Great way to build front and back-end websites.
Solid plan! After the C# and ASP. NET courses, I plan to take the skill path “Build Web Apps with ASP.NET”. According to the syllabus, at the end you create a web app of your own. It’s all about taking the knowledge we learn and translating it into building programs/websites/etc. So we can showcase it on our resumes. Career and skills paths are a good way of doing that for sure.
But after C#, ASP. NET, and then the skills path I talked about, I’ll plan on taking SQL and Git courses because my engineer coworker also said I’ll need knowledge in that.
Full stack engineer para has all of that you planned. But of course not with C#. You have also a solid plan.
I have just started my C# journey, I’ve been doing this for a week now and right now I am on a chapter: “Data Types and Variables/Mad Libs”.
I’m just wondering if you guys also had a hard time understanding certain things at this point and do you have any tips for me on how to get through the course in the best way?
Thanks in advance!
