Once you are comfortable with the main three (as I like to call them) then the logical leap would be server-side programming with PHP, Python, Ruby, etc.Your strength in the core browser API's will make these languages a cinch (sort of, they are all college level languages to learn). There is no hurry or race to get to this level. Stay grounded and focus on the prize: the user interface.
What's next for me?
Well, congratulations on completing the course!. I just did too, and now I'm looking to to the future. Here are some thoughts on the course:
- Covered a lot of different functions, tools etc
(These will be great to build on!)
- Plenty of support (thanks to everyone who was patient with us all on forums!
- Lots of hints to help when stuck!
- Seems like a lot was math based!
(I understand the value of math, but it hurt my head LOL)
- Some parts of the course were worded in a confusing way.
So, what's next?
I'm planning on improving, building on what i know!
- I'm going to do this by
- Reviewing the course again for parts i struggled on
- Working through HTML and CSS again
- Working through the "Build a..Projects
If you've read this far, thank you. Thanks to CodeAcademy staff for providing us the education :) , good luck everyone and enjoy coding!
Excellent advice. Thank you. Can I switch to a second gear in this language in CodeCademy?
HTML5 gives us the canvas and audio/video capability. The sky is the limit once you start coding for graphics. It can get heavy real fast, though, so drill on the basics, and don't lose sight of them. Khan Academy has a decent vanilla JS module, as well as a graphics programming module (that uses the canvas).
I've been some Udacity classes on web dev and they are very good with projects. The courses are free for those who don't want direct instructor support or a certificate. If you can get along with the help of other colleagues and don't want a certificate, I suggest you go for the front-end web developer course at Udacity.
