I've learnt some Vue and I would like to learn React at some point, but as a self-taught developer through using MDN, Treehouse and udemy courses among other resources there are gaps in my knowledge that perhaps I would have learnt had I done a Computer Science degree or a bootcamp I feel around things like how browsers and DNS actually work, web security e.g. CORS and conventions and accessibility. Some of this can naturally be picked up as you gain more experience if you've seen things before you know how to approach it and how your code should be structured.
I've attempted to collate my resources and put together a general learning plan partially inspired by this frontend roadmap and looking through several posts on dev.to to see what others have done and create something similar for myself.
I have a few goals for this year (I partially achieved my ones for last year hopefully to do better this time round..) these are currently (as ever they may change):
There are a few goals/challenges most of which I feel are achievable but I need to be a bit structured in both my learning and my own projects and focus on one thing at a time rather than trying to do many things at once. Admittedly I have said that before and failed but this time I feel more determined to stick it as I feel I need to if I'm going to be able to progress to the next level (although I'm not entirely sure what that looks like right now).
This is my first proper post of 2020 later and longer than I planned. I'm looking at get back into a weekly/fortnightly post with something new I have learnt so until next time.
