As my title says, I am new to web development. After looking around and seeing what is available, I want to aim toward learning full stack development first.
I realized shortly later that this isn’t a good mindset for someone who’s learning to code to have. Not only will I need to learn how to code with different languages over time, but there is also the fact that JS will probably run differently on both stacks.
So now what. I still want to aim for Full Stack Development. I still have an interest in sticking with a framework like MEAN and deal with JS. However, I am pretty much brand new to programming. I am feeling like I may be more beneficial to me if I go Front End (html5, css3, js) first, then for my back end starting off with Python, Ruby, or PHP so I can learn how the essentials of programming first with a language that is still used and may be needed along the way, and then go for a stack after I understand how programming actually works and some theory behind it.
So my questions are this,
Should I just begin with a framework in js First and not worry about it, or should I learn python, Ruby, or PHP instead. I am not asking this to start a huge debate between which language is better. I am just asking for some info on each language and if it will help me as a first language and still be useful out there in the industry.
Thanks for any info that you can provide. Also, I am going the self learning route. I am physically disabled but still young enough to feel like I need to work to provide for my family. I have time to study and any online resources, courses, or videos that are good would be great. I can not afford a boot camp, or to go back to college to finish my degree.
