If I were starting my coding journey today and I wanted a job as a professional, here are the steps I would take:
- Learn from The Odin Project. Build the projects to build a great portfolio and apply for jobs during the full stack portion of the course. This should be enough to land a job.
- Keep upgrading skills by using Full Stack Open. This course is awesome because of the exercises including refactoring, building, adding technologies, debugging, etc.
- Optional: Learn from App Academy Open. The object oriented programming projects, the data structures and algorithms, and computer science will definitely get someone ready for a company with a very high tier of interviewing.
