Starting out as a web developer
I am new to this forum and have a few questions concerning my intended journey into the world of web development. Your help/advice would be greatly appreciated.
I studied a accounting/finance in my undergraduate and having worked in the industry for 2+ years I have decided to go back to school. I will be pursuing a master degree in computer science and would very much like to focus on web development. However, I have been looking at my curriculum and noticed there is not much coursework surrounding web development.( 3-9 credits max)
If anyone could guide me in the right direction about where I can get my hands dirty in the web development world it would be greatly appreciated. How and where would I start as a rookie?
Thank you for taking the time to read this
It seems that you're new here, I am as well (matter of fact I just created my account a few minutes ago).
I was a computer info systems student at a criminal justice school. I didn't know what I was going to go for when I graduated to be honest. I thought I was going to be a 'programmer', but I'm not sure which kind.
So when I was applying for internships, I got this web development position. My first web dev internship was really really bad, I didn't learn anything from it. It was a volunteer position and noone was there to teach me, so I just quit. The only positive thing about that internship was it improved my resume and it also gave me a headstart on what kind of career I want to pursue.
My second internship gave me a LOT of experience.
When it comes to web development, you can either choose to be a Front End Developer, or a Back end Developer. The third option is a Full stack developer (you do everything), and you get paid alot of money for that.
Start by studying from youtube videos or codeacademy.com.
I didn't know ANYTHING about web development when I had my internship. I learned it all on my own + a few help from my coworkers.
It took me about a month to get an idea of what I'm doing.
best of luck!
