Hi! My name’s Carlo and I’m trying to figure out how to design a path for me to follow.
I’ve studied programming before but it was a long time ago. Still, I’m not a total beginner. I’ve studied Python, HTML, CSS, Assembly, and a bit of C.
I’ve read it’s better to choose your end goal and then work backwards, acquiring the skills necessary to enter that field. Problem is, there’s lots of types of developers.
Could anyone help me narrowing down my options so it’s easier to begin (maybe with some advice on the best fields to begin with, in terms of being easier to learn and to break into)? Codeacademy offers computer science, web development and data science as choices. Are they broad enough for me to start with one of them and worry about more specific types of development later? Also, I’ve read that it’s good to simply start with learning a language before worrying about that, so I’ve started studying Python again. Would you say it’s a good way to start?
If I left out anything important please feel free to ask and pm me.
Thank you for your help!
