That’s great advice for someone who has time to learn and as you mentioned is a student. This series is more about getting into the field and finding a dev job as soon as possible so you can get experience and later switch to what you prefer. Thank you for reading πŸ˜„

In this case, I would suggest learning OOPs concept, and then web language (PHP8 is really good). It can be done in less than a month. I am biased at this because I have seen good Java guys writing nice and structured code in node. Not just about structuring but also have a clear understanding about different parts of their application. I have rarely seen someone who started with just JS, able to upgrade their skills easily for the other part of stacks. I have dealt with many freshers (0-2 year experience) who complains that they feel this kind of abstraction will create complex code any they can do better in less number of files.

I have recently done some counseling for peoples who are trying to get into IT in the aftermath of last year. Web is certainly easy to get into. Especially when wordpress is still in such demand. There is no single path to follow.
