Hanié (Zahra)’s Answer
My personal experience: I was a fullstack (node js, react) and moved to a frontend (only react). I would recommend consider your goals. If you want to financially grow your career, then you can either become best in either FE or BE. This way you can become a senior in one domain faster and increase your chances in job market and scoring higher salaries. If you want to move to BE for any other reason, I would recommend watching some short videos on Youtube for your targeted languages to get a taste of which one you like to move forward with (I figured out I have a passion for Python this way).
Let's say you choose one language, now to learn:
Hanié (Zahra) recommends the following next steps:
- Check Udemy website and their courses
- Check Youtube
- Connect to the community of that specific platform or language and try keeping updated
- Get involved with open source projects, and do some side project (doesn't matter if you replicate an existing project)
- Do some code challenges, and read conversations around them! you will learn how to code better by reading other codes!
