So, I have been studying for about a year, with Codecademy and other resources. I have finished the web development path and have taken quite a liking to using Node Express.
However, I do not know where to go from here. I am not looking to be job ready for at least another year, but I don’t know how to continue.
I check job forums just to see what is demanded and I see PHP a lot. I feel terrible going back and starting from scratch again with PHP because I spent so much time learning things from CSS flexbox to Node Express.
Where should I go from here? And where should I go so that I can apply what I have learned in further studies?
I feel quite frustrated that after a year of studying, learning, looking up documentation, trying, failing and then succeeding to be in a spot where I don’t know how to continue.
I see a lot of: learn Wordpress and PHP. But, that won’t let me apply what I have learned already… If that is the path, I should I have started with the former and latter a year ago. Or maybe this is indeed what I should do now.
Any help would be great. I love coding and development, I want to switch careers into it next year, but I don’t know where to continue with my current knowledge.
