Conclusion

This is the end! At this point, you should have a deep and nuanced understanding of web development. You know Javascript works, how to build back-end using a framework of your choice, for example, Rails or NodeJS. Couple them with other knowledge you’ve gained so far, and you can create exceptional web applications!

If you find something you don’t know or aren’t sure about, you should be, by now, a pro at Googling your way to answer, looking at docs, and cruising through Stack Overflow posts. You’ve got all the tools you need to be a developer. And, really, the big secret is that you’ve been a web developer for a long time already.

There’s a whole world of exciting things you can learn. React Native to build mobile apps, D3 for data visualization, other full-stack frameworks or single-page MVC front-end frameworks, etc. All that stuff is best learned when you’ve got something you want to build that requires “the perfect tool for the job.”

So where do you go from here? BUILD! Build and build and build and build (see a theme in this curriculum yet?). Use what you’ve learned to create great projects. Get a job, so someone else pays you to build. But focus on creating interesting software and use that to drive your education. However, we’re not done yet. We’ll be working on your HTML and CSS skills next, so get ready for that!
