When you completed the front end developer course…

I finished the “WTF Co ten front end” developer training. This is probably the most important event of this week. Well past the deadline, but inspired by many interesting threads. Thanks to the topics covered in the WTF front end developer training, I got deeper into CSS and JavaScript. I even tried to learn React.JS, but after three weeks I found that I still didn’t know enough about JavaScript.

My first front end developer Online CV

This week I prepared my first front end developer Online CV. Like nothing, but it allowed me to gain more confidence in my own abilities. It was basically the first project prepared from a template without any support from the trainer. It is true that I could do the project together with the teacher later, but I didn’t know that it would be like this, and I did it entirely myself. The cool thing about this project is that it updates itself with the latest projects that I have completed and that have been uploaded to the internet in the form of a website. This CV is based on Github tools, check it out: Online CV.

WTF training finished, what next?

I’m currently completing the Advanced CSS training on Udemy, which is also very valuable training. Then I have to complete the Java Script training. Armed with this knowledge, I will be able to start training with React, and at the end, I will leave training with Node.JS.

In the meantime, I’m going to make a few websites, with an emphasis on the overdue ones. This action plan covers approximately the next three to four months. What to do next depends on how the situation develops. I have a few scenarios in my head, but none of them are particularly preferred by me. Currently, I want to focus on consolidating my knowledge and expanding my knowledge in the field of JS + React.

A short review on front end developer world history.

This week I have a few statements about how websites are now created and how they used to be created. The overall tone is that it’s easier, as long as you don’t need to write JavaScript code.

Once, I had a two-year love affair with web development, but that was before the CSS was discovered. In fact, it was easy, as long as you didn’t care about the appearance of your website on different screens.

Note, you didn’t have to worry about it that much, because most of the available screens were 13 inches. Only some could afford a 15-inch screen. So it was easier that way. The trick was to arrange the page content in a table and then translate that into code.

How is it now?

Front end developer have much more possibilities. The problems associated with arranging elements on the page are also over thanks to the tricks and ingenuity of the web developer.

We currently have Flexbox and Grid which are great for arranging elements on the page. The Internet is drowning in ideas for interesting components to use, mostly for free.

This is a real paradise for me. I don’t have revolutionary ideas when it comes to design, but I can preview interesting proposals and use them at home. On the other hand, JavaScript is said to be getting more and more complicated. It’s hard for me to judge.

I only see the possibilities that are currently available. There is a lot of it, but we don’t have to know all of them by heart. It is important that we are aware of what can be done thanks to JavaScript and use it when it is needed.

So much for this week. I spent 16 hours programming, half of the time it took me to write my Online CV. The remaining time is to consolidate the knowledge of using Flexbox in website designs.
