Starting My Full Stack Web Developer Journey

Hi Dev community!

Excited to share that I plan to start my full stack web development journey!

I have thought of to start at front end then focus on back end , as well as create some projects during the journey

So here is my planning


  1. HTML
  2. CSS
  3. JavaScript
  4. ReactJs


  1. Node
  2. mongodb

These are my plans and I am a newbie in web development so seeking help and if I have to add any tech stack in front or back end please comment and help me out.

Thankyou for your support dev's!

Hello Mohamed! I'm glad to hear that you're interested in building a skill in full stack web development!

Software Development is a lot like being a Medical professional, there's an incredible amount of different specialties to choose from, which would dictate which skills you'd want to learn.

Deciding to start with a full-stack JavaScript route is solid strategy to pursue, as it will reduce the mental gymnastics (you can learn SQL/Ruby/Go/etc later!) while giving you a chance to build up conceptual knowledge that transcends specific choices in a tech stack.

I've taught bootcamp programs before, if I were to design a full-stack JS course today, this would be my curriculum:

  1. Git & Github basics
  2. JavaScript basics
  3. node.js & mongodb => build a basic backend
  4. html, css, and browser-based JS
  5. ReactJS => build a basic frontend
  6. Project tooling (examples: webpack, grunt.js. rollup, etc)
  7. CI/CD Tooling with Github Actions => We would automate the build step from the prior lesson
  8. Environment Variables & Secrets
  9. Deploying your code
  10. Maintaining your project (see my post How I maintain Open Source Projects for some context)
  11. Advanced Concepts: DRY, Low-Code, and outsourcing features
