Full-stack or Back-end career path?

Hi all, I’m Jeff and I’m new to Codeacademy. I’ve been learning front-end development for over the past year. I’m pretty competent in HTML, vanilla CSS, and vanilla JavaScript but I have not learned a front-end JS framework yet. However, I have deployed a couple of JS Apps on Netlify. I want to continue and learn the full-stack. My question is should I start with the full-stack career pathway? Or start with the Learn React course and then proceed to the Back-end career pathway? Thanks in advance for the input. Jeff


I was going to type a long paragraph about the differences between front and back, but you know what? Why don’t we let other devs take this one?

What does a front-end developer do?

What does a back-end developer do?

What does a full-stack developer do?

Hope this helps!


Thank you for your reply. :+1:
