Tomorrow, May 13, I complete one month of pursuing a new career as a front-end developer. It feels like more when I think the number of things I've learned, podcasts I heard, and blogs I read.

The path to follow

Over those 30 days, I started to build a path for myself in regards to the topics, languages and tools I wanted to incorporate in my skill set. So, which other better way to validate my experience so far, then to share my ideas with my community and ask for feedback.

Below is just a list of topics I'm currently studying or plan to tackle soon. Attention! I'm not considering frameworks as of yet, but I would appreciate opinions of when you think I should start.

I will post at the end, some of the projects I've been working on, feel free to give feedback on those as well.
